Hello beautiful MAS family!
Thank you for creating our vibrant, diverse, and supportive community. MAS has been a dream come true over the past three years. Since we opened our doors in January 2015, our classes, workshops, performances, community events, and simply meeting you all has continually inspired us. It’s time for that magic to expand out into neighborhood and city in new ways. We will be closed our studio doors December 14th with our last day of classes. But this is not the end of MAS. All of our teachers are developing new classes, workshops, and events moving forward integrating various other small businesses around LA. It’s our goal always to support the health and artistic expression and development of our community. And although this will be a big change, it’s an amazing opportunity for us to build bigger bridges within our community for cultural, artistic, and health education. Before we say adieu to our beautiful space, we will celebrate the MAS community with The Nutcracker~ a bellydance tale Dec 2nd, Our Winter Recital & Holiday Party Dec 9th, and the MAS Holiday Market Dec 10th. Going out big and moving forward strong. Thank you again for everything. You are what have made MAS the unique and amazing space it is.
All our love ,
