Edwin Neimann“When I dance, I forget everything else and just feel completely happy.” That Katherine Jenkins quote sums up exactly how the staff at the Yello Creative Arts & Event Center want their dance students to feel. And the wide variety of dance classes offered in their beautiful space make it possible for any student, regardless of age or level, to find their bliss as they discover the dancer inside.
Yello offers both group classes and private instruction. Kids classes average 8 students per class and adult classes average 5 students per class. Classes offered range from Absolute Beginner Ballet to Belly Dance to Urban Beats (for a full listing of dance classes offered see their website). Yello also offers a Parent & Me class so Mom or Dad can learn dance together with a young one. This year Yello will hold an inaugural Holiday Showcase on Dec. 15th which is the perfect opportunity for students to show off their skills and for families to see what Yello is all about.
In addition to all the dance class offerings, Yello is involved in the community in many other ways. Back in September, Yello was the official Fort Lauderdale sponsor and host for the National Drive Electric Week Car Show. Nissan Leaf was the main sponsor and over 40 electric cars were on display. Attendees took the cars for demo rides and kids enjoyed jugglers, face painting and other kids’ entertainment.
If you are looking for a fun event to start the weekend wind down on a Friday night, First Friday Piano Bar is the place for you. Starting at 7pm (with live music from 8pm – 11pm) on the first Friday of each month, the event is the perfect place to start the weekend. Enjoy an evening out with friends or loved ones or mingle, network and even dance around to the live music. If you are hungry grab a snack from the vegan kitchen. Yes, Yello also has a large kitchen and all the delicious snacks they make (try their BBQ cauliflower or spring rolls) are vegan. They even have vegan beer and wine!
And for the chef in you, Yello offers vegan cooking classes. With the holidays coming up sign up for the Holiday Sweet Treat class and learn how to make the yummiest sweet treats using 100% vegan ingredients. Or follow through on your New Year’s resolution to get healthy and attend a Third Thursday Cooking Series class that will start up again in January.
Yello offers all this in their large, modern, beautiful space up on Commercial Blvd. Come say “Yello!” in-person or check out their website for more information (yellofl.com) or call 954-491-1591 to schedule
