Class Newsletter #22 - 3/5/17

Dear Friends,

Good dancing Thursday night! A big thank you goes to all the angels for showing up each week to fill in squares and help out.

For those of you who were interested I showed a short video of Circle 8 Ranch Thursday night. I hope you that you will plan to come to my weekend in June.

Speaking of weekends, now that you have completed lessons or at least an exposure to the Mainstream calls you can attend any Mainstream dance. Dance as often as you can. You have invested time and effort into learning to square dance. An investment of time now to solidify your learning will make your dancing much more fun and rewarding. Put the workshops on your calendar.

You can also attend any Mainstream weekend or festival. Go to as many as you can. It will be an opportunity to meet dancers from a wider geographic area and to dance to different callers. You will be getting information about many of them next Thursday. One thing I will add is to sign up early. You never know when a weekend or festival has a minimum number of registrations to meet. Many have been cancelled due to lack of early registrations. 

Don’t forget…
"The more you dance the better you feel."
"The more you dance the better you dance."
"The more you dance the more friends you have."

See you Thursday!
Happy dancing,
Susan
