Dear Friends,

Great dancing last Thursday! I purposely did not teach anything new. Several people had missed a week or two. It was a good opportunity to revisit and review the calls that we know so far for everyone. 

A BIG THANK YOU to the demonstration square at the end of the evening. Hopefully, that gave you an idea of how the calls flow together in the dance. 

We had a fun time traveling to visit the Happy Hoppers Saturday night. It was a big crowd. Everyone had a good time. As with many student level dances, we danced a couple of calls that we haven’t learned yet. We will learn them in the next few weeks.
You will see in the Dates to Note below that we added a class night dance between Christmas and New Year’s. Three weeks between classes is a long time. This time schedule will give everyone the Thursday before Christmas off for last minute shopping, holiday preparations and time with family. In the week after Christmas when you might be looking for something to do there will be an opportunity to dance. I won’t teach anything new unless it is one of the traditional calls that we don’t dance regularly. Rip and Snort might be fun. Plan to join us.

I’m sure most are busy this week getting ready for Thanksgiving celebrations with family and friends. If you will be traveling, stay safe. Enjoy that extra piece of pie. You can come to class next week and dance it off. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy dancing,
