Mark Novak's 30th
anniversary of teaching dance!

Friday, June 3rd

8:00 - 9:00 PM Class in East Coast Swing
9:00 - 10:30 PM Dance Party

In June of 1986, Mark Novak began his career as a Teacher Trainee by answering a classified ad and landing an entry-level position at CarPell Dance Studio in Fresno, California. The years that would follow took him to many places and in contact with many industry greats. In 1993, a job offer to join the staff at Dance Arts Studios in San Rafael brought him to the Bay Area. He would work on staff at Dance Arts for seven years before striking out as an independent and eventually opening his own school which he ran for twelve years before closing its doors. In commemoration of thirty years of service, Mark returns to Dance Arts on Friday, June 3rd, to teach an East Coast Swing Class from 8-9 pm. A dance party will follow afterward featuring all of your favorite cuts of Ballroom, Latin, and Club styles! We will cut a cake to Mark the timeline and toast Mark's career with a fruit punch. A special evening not to be missed.


In advance: $20 class & party
At the door: $30 class & party
