Dear Friends,

We are almost to the end of the list. Three more calls! Good dancing Thursday night! Thanks for being good sports about all the repetitions of these last few calls. Once we learn these last three we will do more dancing and less drill. If you haven’t watched the videos, you might want to for these last few calls. Or wait until next week after we have finished the whole list.

I hope you are all planning to come to the dance on Friday. It will be a full Mainstream dance because you will know all the calls. I’m calling so I will be gentle. 

Have a great week! See you Thursday!
Happy dancing,

Susan
