As this year ends soon, I am happy to where SMASH has progressed to. Being mobile and establishing so many partnerships with other dance facilities has been a true blessing. Where once we were terrified with what might come about SMASH due to the economy, now has opened our eyes to the meaning, "everything happens for a reason" SMASH had finally been at a happy peaceful moment this year, until I received an email from a competitor for coincendentally having the same "general" name for one of our dance classes. They sent a "threat" to change our class name because they had it "first". It wasn't a very nice email as they went on to say that they reported me to Face Book too. Now it all made sense why my Face Book account was disabled. An account in which I started 2 years ago and had many sentimental pictures, blogs, contents, and network of many many friends and students. All gone over this small problem that could of been handled differently. But instead of being nasty back, I wished them all the luck in the world in their business and explained how I wished they would of simply emailed me first before having my Face Book removed. That I have no problem changing the name of that very small program I have. I wished them happy holidays and in my heart I forgave them. I will simply have to start my FB over. It's the not the first time I've been sabotaged or probably not even the last. The business world is an ugly place sometimes, but I keep my head up high and I know why God has given me SMASH. It's my mission to help kids and adults reach their mission, their goals, and have SMASH as their outlet to do that. Instead of being angry, I've learned to let things go quickly before it eats me inside. And I believe in Karma, what comes around goes around. So far I am super happy with SMASH, I appreciate my supporters, my daughter who runs one location for me and is doing fantastic, my students who love SMASH, my fiance' who's my number one business partner, ... and well I'm just so appreciative that any wrong doings done to me or SMASH..It's easy to just brush off now. :-)

SMASH holidays are special for us. So many gorgeous routines and hard work from everyone that really shows dedication during this season. The holiday recital in San Antonio AND Las Vegas were amazing! It's a great rewarding feeling to work with so many unique families from different backgrounds. The kids are the reason why we work so hard, to give them the best dance experience possible that they will cherish for a life time.

SMASH in San Antonio, TX is going great! My Kinderdance classes at all the daycares & community centers are doing awesome! I feel like I've grown so fast so quickly here in S.A. It's a true blessing....there is a lot of work and growth to still go through, but I am content to know where I am right now. Hard work, passion, & dedication really do pay off. I am working on a Holiday Showcase where all my classes from all the daycares & center will perform. The kids are excited, the parents are excited, & I find it to be a joy to please all of them. Jazz/Hiphop classes keep me young, and my pre-teens are a pleasure to work with. I am hosting a CAMP ROCK Holi-Day Camp during the kids Thanksgiving Break, this will be so much fun and I've been prepping up for it last few days....:-) For Camp Rock Day Camp tickets Register at 12395 Military Dr. Villages of West Creek Community Center.

Wow what a hard working but exciting year it has been! Although 2009 was rough leaving our space at 9620 S. Las Vegas Blvd...2010 has been nothing but positive. The SMASH mission was to expand to different areas, and bring the SMASH concepts to different locations. And now it is happening...although one area sord of "borrowed" our concept...it is still a SMASH concept even there! SO in the end..the mission is working. SMASH now in 2 states and running programs at over 10 locations! AND NOW I'm excited to announce SMASH Kids Program at Broadway Hall Studio! This I know will be huge!! Because SMASH has always been about running all types of muti-cultural classes in its location..and Broadway Hall Studio already offers amazing Salsa and Latin classes! So now with SMASH there bringing ALL of our amazing programs..it is a WIN/WIN. When people and businesses join together and partner up....no one looses. There is no competition. We are all here for the same reason, right?? To teach others the talents that has been given to us. To be a 2nd home to the children and give them a positive outlet. Sure we all have to make a living...but when you do the right thing, you are taken care of. PLEASE JOIN US AT THE NEW SMASH AT BROADWAY HALL STUDIO Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for FALL 2010 Schedule with the BEST affordable tuition prices of LAS VEGAS!!!
