And just like that… it’s the end of an era…
With a loving, weighted and grateful heart I announce that this will be the last season of ARMY of SASS licensing and programming.
With the end of one era comes the beginning of a new one. From this moment onwards, you’ll witness our fierce AOS location licensees releasing news of their new programming, and how they will continue on with the spirit & community of AOS through their own unique creative offerings for 2021 onwards.
Leading up to the new year, we have an incredible finale season of AOS programming now through December at more than 20 locations across North America. For students who are already enrolled, know that this change does not impact your fall registrations; we’re staying sassy allllll the way to the end of 2020!
We also know you may have some questions about this time of transition so we’ve posted some community FAQs on this page, below.
To our valued and LOVED members… words don’t begin to express our pride, joy and love when we see you in the studio and on stage. The memories that have been made, the friendships, bonds and boundary-breaking experiences… your transformations will forever be the highlight of this community experience. Every smile, every bit of confidence that you walk with in your life… every time you celebrate yourself, know we are cheering right beside you! Your bravery and fire are what always kept this going and growing.
Keep dancing, keep showing up for yourself and remember: YES YOU CAN!
To our licensee family (both our Locations & our Teachers), it’s time… time for AOS HQ to gracefully pass the torch to the new generation of our AOS leaders. I know you will take the gifts of the AOS syllabus, shows, and knowledge of how to do what you do, with you & to lead the community you’ve worked so hard to build. Take it and grow, flourish and develop the next version of this body of work.
We look forward to celebrating and enjoying this final season of ARMY of SASS across the continent before we close our doors on December 31st. Don’t worry, we won’t be fully gone! We will be announcing a legacy project shortly, to continue our support of dance & charitable initiatives. Until then, enjoy this time together in our international community and please continue to support/follow your regional locations. This is only the beginning of a revolution of self-love through dance.
So many words… I’m sure many more to come… until next time, all I can say is… THANK YOU.
~Carla Catherwood, CEO/Founder of Army of Sass
Frequently Asked Questions
Why are you closing?
ARMY of SASS as a licensed community has had its time. With the world changing so quickly it has become clear to us that what our leaders need now is the flexibility to choose what is best for their unique needs. With that in mind, we’ve made the difficult decision to retire the AOS Licensing Program. But do know we have left your leaders with gifts to continue their next venture with the spirit of AOS in mind, including our AOS library of themed shows, the AOS syllabus and, of course, the encouragement to keep things going locally for all of YOU in their own creative way!
This may be the end of one era… but it is the beginning of a new one. We encourage you to continue to support and follow your local teachers and locations as they move forward in their ventures.

I have a question about fees/credits/refunds.
Every location has its own process for fees & credits; please connect directly with your location licensee for more information. (Click HERE for a location list)
What about Fall Classes?
All regularly scheduled Army of Sass Programming continues through to end of December. Please see a location near you for current class offerings, including online training, drop-ins, and session programming.
What about Winter Classes?
The last Army of Sass Program will be Fall 2020. But the spirit of AOS will live on with our licensees as new unique programs offered directly through them. Please follow the location closest to you for their upcoming announcements!
I ordered merchandise; will I still get it?
Any merchandise ordered through the official AOS Online Store (Armyofsass.com/shop) will continue to be shipped directly to you (limited quantities remaining). If you’ve ordered merchandise direct from a location, please connect with the location licensee for timing/delivery options.
What’s next for AOS?
Don’t worry, we won’t be fully gone! We will be announcing a legacy project shortly, to continue our support of dance & charitable initiatives. Until then, enjoy this time together in our international community and please continue to support/follow your regional locations. This is only the beginning of a revolution of self-love through dance.
