With Christmas and 2016 fast approaching it’s that time of year again when we all consider our future plans and goals for the New Year, in fact a conversational topic which cropped up in our team outing last night whilst we munched on some rather delicious Thai food in Zapp.(Photo: Sarah, Ruth and Ceris at Zapp, Leeds)

Whilst I’m sure all of you would agree that some of our best laid plans unfortunately never come to fruition it’s always good to set yourself goals and targets. Maybe it’s to get fit with some dance classes at the studio after the festive break following watching too many Christmas films and devouring numerous mince pies (yes I will hold my hand up the latter!), or to make time for that holiday which has been on the agenda for several years.

At DSL we wanted to bring in the New Year by introducing a new welcoming reception area which we hope you will enjoy using. The foyer is having a lick of fresh paint (literally as I type) and we have some new trimmings so to speak for you to lounge on. We will also be introducing a new reception frontage where someone will be on hand should you need any refreshments, have any questions, or need to purchase a new pair of ballet shoes via our small studio shop. We look forward to showing you at your next visit to the studios!

We are also delighted to have our new website alive and kicking which we hope you are enjoying browsing and should you already be using a mobile device, or need to access information on the go, the new design will ensure you get the information you need faster and easier.

So whilst squeezing in some final emergency Christmas shopping we’ll be busy kitting out the new reception over the next few days and doing some final tweaks – happy that some of our plans for the New Year will be in place. I still need to work on the shedding of mince pies and chocolates though! 😉

Here’s to a fabulous New Year and we look forward to dancing into 2016 with you all!
