Update as of 2-24-21:
We are opening with a limited schedule of indoor & outdoor offerings. Additional offerings are coming! SGD Dance, Fitness and Event Center MUST OPEN fully in order to make it! We are truly running out of time and are requesting your help.
SGD was never provided the Government assistance that was promised at the beginning of the pandemic, despite applying for it in March 2020. We have worked extremely hard for 11 months through very creative offerings the ENTIRE pandemic. We have fought daily to get the promised government funding that we still have yet to receive. We have lost all money, all staff and are on the verge of losing our entire business as we watch packed malls and big box corporations get rich with no restrictions. Our 17,000 SF facility is plenty large and no different than a retail or grocery store.
Fitness and social interaction are essential and needed NOW MORE THAN EVER! Dance, music and socializing fills the soul and brings us together for shared happiness. This missing piece out of our lives is truly essential and it's time to come together and reunite!
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1.) We have a large goal of getting 200 members as fast as possible. We don't have long before we will have to close for good and with your help, we will be able to continue fighting. Our membership is only $75/ month and includes ALL Dance & Fitness classes. This is an AMAZING DEAL and if you sign up now, you will get this rate forever- even when we add many more classes! No Contracts, month-to-month and cancel at anytime. Your support will HELP US get back on our feet and HELP YOU establish a new routine that's so important for your physical and mental health. A great way to kick off this new year with much needed movement, happiness and socializing again! Please spread the word to friends that may want to support a shuttered small business that has been fighting the entire pandemic and provides options for everyone! See more about the membership HERE.
GO FUND ME CAMPAIGN
2.)We have started a Go fund me campaign: Help Save Shawn Gardner Dancing in an attempt to salvage what’s left of our business. The goal is large as it's essentially replacing the Government assistance that was never received. We hope one day this will come through and we will continue to apply for additional funding and grants. See the Go fund me video story and page HERE.

Although SGD previously offered 35+ classes a week, we can only offer limited offerings until we can gather enough funding to get going fully again. We will be open 7 days a week for public classes, private rentals, private lessons, private small groups and private events.
