Event Recap:


On behalf of all of Rae Studios and The Bay Club SF, we want to say thank you to who all who came out and supported local artists in dance, movement, and wellness at our FIRST BOOMBOX WEEKEND activating both the indoor and outdoor spaces on Saturday, June 12th and Sunday, June 13th. It was a beautiful sunny day, and the energy was too strong to handle that the roof started leaking!


We'd like to take a moment to highlight our incredible instructors! Starting off our weekend with some rich Jazz education was the fabulous Brenda Palaby. Veteran instructor Jordan brought her luscious Heels Choreography to the gym, not something you experience every day! Closing the Saturday line, we brought in Dancehall Queen Libby who made it feel like we were in a real Dancehall class in Jamaica.


Our fresh and fiery instructor Tessa Trowbridge had us pumping IRON in her Bootcamp class bright an early on Sunday! Shruthi and Chandni's PACKED roof top class kept us wanting more BollyX in our lives! Everyone was stomping their feet, cheering, singing, and laughing. I'm sure we were heard all across the Bay! Finally, our amazing and fearless leader Jessica Rae stepped in last minute to keep the party moving in her fantastic Cardio Hip Hop set. Everyone gave a non-stop cardio dance performance worthy of a world tour! LET'S GO!!! Thank you to this fabulous #RaeCrew once again. We are sure we'll see another great lineup at our next Boombox Weekend SOON! ;)
