Business Update

15 September, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all businesses that centre around the performing arts and activities involving close contact. West Coast Swing is one of the most social dances, and our activities centred on a community of people who came together to dance with each other. With that interaction no longer possible, Smoothstyle is shuttered.

We are fortunate that we have full-time careers outside of the performing arts.
