The BLUE8

The BLUE8 Movement Studio and Action/Adventure Prod. Co. that cross trains our team and the public in Dance, Parkour, Kung Fu, Yoga, and Tactical Ops to self-fund creative endeavors.

Here at Blue8, our goal is to create a community of creativity and self expression to its very fullest. We are an aspiring production co that is dedicated to sharing the arts we feature in our projects with the public. Classes are taught by fun, supportive teachers who are passionate about sharing knowledge and making movement accessible to everyone at any level. Want to dance? Dance Class is offered Tuesday and Thursday nights @7:30 Class consists of a 1-hour ballet barre focused on flexibility, strength, coordination and developing your relationship with all the muscle groups in your body. Then, it's time for some fun! The second hour of class focuses on relieving stress, and dancing your heart out with hip hop, contemporary, or whatever style Caitlin throws in the mix week to week. Check in on the Blue8 page to see what style you can expect! There is limited space so class caps off at 16 ppl. Email: [email protected] to reserve your spot! "So... How much does this awesome class cost?" Classes run "on donation" at this time. To us, it is more important that we all train together than anything else. We would hate for the pressure of money to stop anyone from showing up. Class structure and payment may evolve over time as we expand our instructional programs but this will exist as our preferred format for now. "But, Caitlin, how much would a good donation be?" Good effing question!! We are shooting for $20 per 2hour class (a steal fo real) BUT if that isn't possible, give what you can. $5, $10, $16, a scented candle, the change from your couch haha! We also take dedication, consistent attendance, and good spirits (alcoholic and non) as acceptable currency. And I cannot stress how much we really mean this. There are no judgements or obligations here...Just a glass water dispenser that we never use that we have repurposed into an anonymous tip jar. We hope you invite people, spread the word, and keep showing up. I look forward to the awesome things we will do this year as we Move. Evolve. Become the people we dream ourselves to be. See you in class!

Mission: To create a desirable space for those who share a common synergistic mindset, where one can foster inspirations and creative expansion un-impinged and to the fullest extent.

Hello Blue8 Students and Families,

At Blue8, your child’s health and safety is our top priority. In response to growing concerns with Coronavirus (Covid-19) and all information currently available, Blue8 will remain open. We want to be a safe and fun resource for everyone, and hope to see you in class. We also want you to know that we are committed to doing our part to keep kids and teachers healthy. With guidance published by the CDC, Blue8 is increasing protocols to protect against studio-level transmission and to ensure a clean and safe environment for your children.

Blue8 cleans and disinfects the studio daily. We use cleaning solutions that are both non-toxic and kill/inhibit the presence of bacteria and illnesses on surfaces. Props are washed and sanitized. Due to heightened concern, we are taking additional steps to be extra vigilant.

1. We have brought in a Molekule air filtration system.
2. We are limiting all class sizes to 10 students or less. (please register in advance or email [email protected])
3. We are limiting prop usage in class.
4. We are sanitizing all high traffic areas between class sessions throughout the day. (door handles, bathrooms, ballet barres, hand rails, props)
5. Swapping stamps for stickers or glitter spray.
6. Miss Caitlin and Coach Charlie are monitoring their health, and will stay home if they feel unwell.
7. Please check the schedule on days you wish to attend class for the most updated information.

We encourage all our students to follow these best practices to help keep themselves and others healthy:

1. If your child or anyone in your family is unwell, please stay home from class. Blue8 never charges for late cancellation. You can always email [email protected] or text 407.921.0765 to give an update, cancel a reservation, or ask questions.
2. Wash hands for at least 20 seconds often, especially after eating, coughing/sneezing, using the bathroom, and before and after being in a public space.

For those wondering about our Spring Break Camps, at this time they are on! We are limiting registration to 10 students per camp day. If for any reason you need to cancel your Spring Break Camp reservation, your fee can be put toward future classes or private lessons.

With schools closed, we know its important for your children to have safe places to have fun, get some exercise, express themselves and interact. As events unfold and more information comes our way, we will stay in contact with creative ways to keep them healthy and happy. We thank you for your cooperation and assistance in adhering to these important guidelines.

If you have any questions or concerns, we are available to talk. Email [email protected] or text/call 407.921.0765

Thanks and Best,
Caitlin Geier

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Hello Blue8 Students! It’s Miss Caitlin! I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving 🙂 I traveled out to the mountains, and unfortunately we got snowed in and lost power! Thankfully, my phone has battery! 😬 Roads out are currently closed, and they are saying we may be stuck through to Sunday. So... I have cancelled classes for this Sunday since I am not sure if I will make it back in time. If you have already signed up, your class is credited back to your account for use next week. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you in class next week!

...it is a nice view though!!

Our paddler education video will officially premiere on Friday, May 31st! As awareness of the Devils grows, so do the number of visitors to its banks.
