Building the Bridge
Dance is a bridge that connects people from all walks of life. Dance enriches lives and creates bonds, regardless of age, gender, background or ethnicity. Six years ago, we started with a dream: to create a place where people could learn, share, and grow through dance. A place where people could escape the monotony and mundane-ness of real life, and enter a world of creativity, safety, and most importantly, fun. With that in mind, we created Monday Night Workshop.
Monday Night Workshop is the product of six years of fervent ambition and continuous hard work. It is the product of an unwavering love of dance. Monday Night Workshop is, quite simply, the embodiment of our passion and dreams. In our time as an organization, we’ve hosted quality dance workshops in the Bay Area, every Monday. We’ve been able bring out some of the most passionate and talented dancers in the world, and through the community's support, we've established ourselves as the Bay Area’s premier dance organization.
We want to go further. We want to give the Bay a place where they can receive the best in dance, in a friendly and welcoming environment--every day of the week. We want to create, a home to everything we’ve believed in for the past six years. Monday Night Workshop’s On One Dance Studio will be the Bay Area’s premier dance studio. It will be an environment of creativity and safety, diversity and fun. A place where anyone, regardless of age or skill level, can learn something new and find joy in dance.
A Studio with a Strong Foundation
On One Dance Studio will be built upon eveything Monday Night Workshop has striven to promote in the past six years:
- Bridging the gap of diversity: Dance should be a positive, community-building activity. It doesn't matter what you look like or have experience in, dance is a universal language everyone should have access to. On One Dance Studio will be a safe haven for anyone and everyone who wants to learn about dance.
- Commitment to quality: Time is precious, and the time you set aside in your busy schedule to spend with us, should be valuable and worthwhile. We invite choreographers that we believe have something unique to spread to others. The choreographers we book are passionate and dedicated to spreading the joy and positivity that comes with dance. On One Dance Studio will be dedicated to providing the best possible atmosphere for our students.
- Growth through hard work: To us, a dance class is a place of growth. A place where students are able to challenge themselves while growing at their own pace. We believe in hard work and fun for people of all ages--whether it’s your first class or your 50th.
This studio is for the community, by the community, which means that every penny contributed will be put towards construction and maintenance. We are not pocketing any of the money. To promote transparency, we've broken down the list of expenses:
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. On One Dance Studio has been a dream of ours for many years, and we're humbled to be given to opportunity to share our values with the rest of the world.
