It is with decidedly mixed emotions that we announce our decision to wind down our partnership and business as Studio VZF after almost 8 years of operation. It has been a glorious, wild run - full of special events, friendships, fundraisers, community and celebrations. We have been blessed with your support and privileged to join each of you on your own journey to health and fitness through the magic of Zumba®.
While we are closing down Studio VZF, you will still be able to attend Zumba classes at the Dance Victoria Studios, ROWI, Gordon Head Recreation Centre, Cedar Hill Recreation Centre, West Shore Recreation Centre and Esquimalt Recreation Centre - at mostly of the same times and with some of same instructors. It will just be that each instructor will operate independently. Claire will also be taking a hiatus from teaching to recover from her July 20th surgery and to spend more time with her aging parents.
We are moving quickly to wrap up Studio VZF by August 31, 2017. To keep everyone up to date, we will be posting regular updates on our website, Facebook page, via email and in class. In the interim, here is some important information about our Drop In Classes and Punch Cards:
If you have a Studio VZF punch card, these now EXPIRE on AUGUST 31, 2017
- Starting Monday July 10, we will be selling 5-class punch cards for $40.
- Drop ins will cost $10 instead of $12.
- There will be a monthly pass available in August for $90. (Please note due to a conflicting event at DVS, we have to cancel on MORNING classes on Monday, August 21st, Wednesday, August 23rd, and Friday, August 25th. Our Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday classes will still run that week.)
There will still be community-wide events including our annual Cops for Cancer Fundraiser coming this Fall. Our operating structure may be changing but not our love of Zumba and not the incredible community that means so much to both of us.
