Thank you for all the support you have given since we officially established "The Power With Grace" and "Stop Drop and Dance" as a small business on December 12, 2019.
In the past 3 years, we have stumbled, pivoted, grown, and survived through the pandemic, and it has been a humbling, yet incredibly meaningful path. I am grateful to all the loyal dancers that have continued to show up to classes week after week, the yogis and fitness enthusiasts who have returned together on Wednesdays, and all of you behind-the-scenes who read these weekly newsletters and root for our continued journey to simply find joy and mental health in community and exercise.
Thank you for raising over $33,000!
In addition to celebrating birthdays all year round (like Sandy's Corny Christmas class last week), one of our biggest accomplishments for the past 3 years has been using our Stop Drop and Dance classes as an easy way to give back to our community. Thank you for partnering with us to host fundraisers and auctions to benefit everything from schools to non-profit organizations! In 2022, we raised over $33,000 for:
- St. Vincent de Paul Society of Marin
- Gina Daly's Campaign Fundraiser
- Revived Soldiers Ukraine
- Ruby's Rainbow
- UVALDE GoFundMe
- B4BC - Boarding for Breast Cancer
- CA Nurse Midwives
- By The Bay Health
- St. Patrick's School
- Mark Day School
- Glenwood Elementary School
- Can Do! Education Foundation
- Marin Foster Care Association
- and more!
New Pricing Effective January 1st
Unfortunately as a small business, we have seen increases in the past 3 years among all areas of business fees including ourwebsite, music licenses, equipment maintenance, software fees, and more.Rent especially, has been particularly challenging. Already, UU Marin and the Saturday "One Thorndale Garage" are the absolute most affordable venues we have found for the criteria we look for, in particular, square footage, parking, open air ventilation, no music restrictions, etc.
However, our rent has more than doubled, specifically, increased 224%, since 3 years ago.
Therefore, starting January 1st, 2023, drop-in and membership pricing will automatically increase as shown below. For current members, if you do not want to transition to the new membership, please contact us at email@example.com.
Join us for New Years Eve!
We have our regular weekly schedule this week, including a 75 minute Stop Drop and Dance class on New Years Eve, this Saturday, 9:30am at "The Garage!" Hope you can join us as we celebrate the last day of 2022 together!
The photo below is my favorite one from our Tulum retreat earlier in December. It represents the intention and purpose that "The Power With Grace" was ultimately created for:
"To learn to grow through every obstacle, find love in every imperfection, and appreciate every breath."
Happy 2023 Friends!
