A Nostalgic Summer

A Nostalgic Summer
Lately I've been looking back to the beginnings of my time at BBW when we were located "On the Hill" in a little space on Pennsylvania Avenue next to The Sink. Wave Rave was next door and Jacque Michelle was above us. The door was usually left open to let the sun and air in. On breaks I would run over to the market by Serendipity or over to the Brillig Works for a strong cup of coffee and a muffin that was too large to eat.  It's here where I fell in love with this community and where I met some of the most influential people to my adult life (outside of my family).  Our original logo was designed by Troy Stone and included a beautiful version of the flatirons. Troy, not unlike today, rode his bike everywhere and always stopped by to say hello. Since then, Troy has had a traumatic brain injury while riding his bike that changed the course of his life.

Teaching dance is not as easy as it looks. Since there are no requirements for opening a dance studio, you want to make sure the school is run by a qualified teacher who has studied for decades and has a degree and/or a professional career. Remember you are trusting this person with your child's physical safety, so make sure they really know what they're talking about. The school should have a well organized website that includes resumes for the director and other faculty...

What's more fun than hanging out with the ladies?

What's more fun than hanging out with the ladies?
Indeed! What IS more fun than hanging out with the ladies? Maybe shopping, getting a massage, experiencing essential oils and learning about the 24 day challenge with Advocare, all while having some tapas and wine!  March 18th from 5-9, that is exactly what we will be doing at BBW. Everything in the store will be 25% off and sale racks will be an extra 10% off up to 75% off. Fresh in for spring in fashion from Om Girl, Beyond Yoga, ALO, Cut Loose, Wooden Ships and all of your favorites will be here. This is a great time to stock up on what you dancer needs too -shoes, tights etc. Jesse Werner will be offering chair massage to get you thru the mid week slump. Jillian Schoffel will have doTerra Essential oils for you to explore. If you haven't learned about the incredible properties of essential oils, they are wonderous. We've been using citrus oil around the store to keep us humming through the day. Lastly (but not least), Advocare will be here showing the products for their 24 day challenge for a healthier lifestyle. No obligations, just information and fun.  We hope you will join us for this fun...
