I own a dance studio that offers dance instructions to children and young adults with special needs. It is very fulfilling work to be able to teach the special student the different ways their bodies can move. I teach Ballet, tap, and jazz. Some of the students have a form of autism that makes it difficult to be around loud noises. Last Tuesday morning I opened up my dance studio, and as I turned my air conditioning on, I realized it was making loud noises. I tried turning the thermostat down lower, thinking that would eliminate the noise. Twenty minutes later the air conditioning was still making a grinding noise. I knew my dancers would be negatively affected by it. I didn’t want to cancel class, so I decided to turn the air conditioning off. I called an HVAC technician, and made an appointment with him to inspect my heating and cooling system. He planned to come out after my first class. The air quality was a little on the hot side, but we got through it. I apologized to the parents, and told them about the air conditioning problem. They were very understanding. The HVAC technician showed up on time and looked at the air conditioning. The HVAC technician soon found the problem, and fixed it quickly. The air conditioning was soon blowing cool air through the ductwork. The dance students breathed a sigh of relief, and the air quality cooled down. Air conditioning is very important, especially in a dance studio.
