What's going on?

Joe announces Zoom lessons during pandemic.

“Hunkered down” are you? GOOD! While we kick this viruses arse, I’ll be offering lessons online via Zoom -super easy to use + FaceTime for you Apple peeps. New students welcome! Contact me for information. Let’s not lose any ground + this will be a great way to keep you/your child active and stimulated through this troubling time. If I can offer some advice on effective hand washing. Singing happy birthday when you’re not at an actual birthday party is weird so hum a fiddle tune instead -both take around the same amount of time. STAY HEALTHY EVERYONE!

Mark your calendars and start warming up your foot stompin’ leg! If you haven’t been to 443 yet, here’s your chance to check out this seriously hip little place!
