a core makeover

last month, i mentioned that the core, your perfect center in redondo beach was closing at the end of 2008. it was a studio that taught music, art, and movement classes for kids as well as yoga and dance classes for adults. after the final children's christmas show on the 31st, the lights were turned off and the doors locked for the last time...

i just received an update from them yesterday:

The Core is Back in Action!

New Name

The Core YPC, Inc. will be dissolved as a company, but the spirit of the company will live on... All future classes will be billed, accounted and administered through Melinda Fornero's other company, Music 'N Motion, Inc. Think of it as a Core makeover: fresh name, fresh location, fresh start!

New Location

We're still shopping around for the perfect new space, but in the meantime, please join us at

Celebrate Life
23706 Crenshaw Blvd
Torrance, CA 90505

Located near Crenshaw and Lomita, this cozy location will accomodate fewer numbers, but will allow us to move forward as a family as we await a new, more permanent location. With only 8-10 spaces available per class, be sure to reserve your spot today!

While we're seeking a new location to continue the success of The Core's children and adult classes, please understand that we are not looking to open a new facility on our own. With the trials and tribulations of today's economy, it serves us better to rent a facility on an hourly basis.

Same Quality Classes

There's no question that the inviting space and beautiful d├ęcor is what initially made us fall in love with The Core... but it's the quality of the instructors and classes that kept us coming back for more. The warm, loving, welcoming energy that you felt as you walked through The Core's doors has not been lost and will live on as long as you continue to take classes with us!

Kids' Classes Coming Soon

Don't worry, parents....Miss Melinda will be back soon! Keep checking your e-mails as we hope to add yoga, drama, dance and hip hop beginning in February! Location TBA.
