Honestly dancing with Lourdes today at Yang's was the happiest day I've had in six months! The gym was spotless, and we were led through all of the safety protocols by Diana and Alex, and I felt very comfortable being there.  Thank you so much. Seeing my friends and dancing to the great music while getting a terrific workout was special, and I can't wait to do it again. Simply the BEST!!
