It’s Cooly Rocks On Week coming up.. Whats happening? Where are we?

Hello beautiful people,

What a week!  My floor looks like the dressing rooms of a major retail store on boxing day sales!  Clothes everywhere!  Packing for our trip to Yeppoon, then unpacking then washing then packing again for Cooly Rocks On!  I’m so glad I have a whole studio to throw down outfits and decide what makes the cut and what doesn’t.. All this and yes we still work and yes we still pop our 2-3 times a week to teach and dance!  No matter!  I will sort that mess out after all the fun has been had right?
