I run a dance studio that offers dance instructions to children and young adults with special needs. It is unquestionably fulfilling work to be able to teach the students the fun ways their bodies can move. I teach Ballet, tap, and hip hop. Some of the students have a form of autism that makes it difficult to be around sudden noises. Last Wednesday afternoon I opened up the dance studio, and as I turned our a/c on, I realized it was making loud noises. I tried turning the thermostat down lower, thinking that would eliminate the rattling noise. Twenty minutes later the a/c was still making a rattling noise. I knew our dancers would be instantly affected by it. I didn’t want to cancel class, so I decided to turn the a/c off. I called an Heating and A/C specialist, and made an appointment with him to inspect our cooling system. She planned to come out after our first class of the day. The air quality was a little on the warmer side, but we got through class. I apologized to the parents, and told them about the a/c problem. They were luckily understanding. The Heating and A/C specialist showed up on time and looked at the a/c. The Heating and A/C specialist soon found the problem, and fixed it without an issue. The a/c was soon blowing cool air through the vents. The dance students breathed a sigh of relief, and the air quality cooled right off. Air conditioning is unquestionably crucial, especially in a dance studio with special needs students.
