Just bring your water bottle. We will bring light snacks. You may bring non-dancing guests, but please let them know that they will need to sign a liability waiver.

 

Level 1

Simply Blue is looking great — and your 3 dances from last week are too! — so our plan for next Friday is another new dance “Rockin’ the Wagon Wheel”.

Level 3

“Blessed” is looking really good!!. And the rest of our Level 3 dances looked great too. Mary was really delighted with your progress — and we were so proud!!!!!!

We will be fully reviewing “Blessed”, and by request we will be teaching a new one too.

We have chosen a great long-time favourite dance “Toes” — a real Margaritaville-style dance. It is one of my favourites!! We may just get started on it, but I trust that you will love it.

Here is the full plan for this week:

  • Warm up: Gypsy Queen
  • Review: Blessed
  • New: Toes
  • “No-review” fun: Stitches or Homegrown

Practice:

We will have practice time next Tuesday (17th) at 3:00. The cost is $2.

This is designated as Level 2 review week, and our Level 3 dancers are welcome to join. We will review Peligrosa, Stitches, and Bosa Nova. If time permits, we will review Homegrown and Imelda’s Way.

If you have not mastered these dances, we highly encourage you to come to practice.

 

Reminders (All):

Please bring clean, non-marking shoes. No outdoor shoes are permitted on the dance floor.

 

Cheers,

Faye and Deb and Sharon

Here is the lineup for Friday’s class with Mary. It would be great if you could practice the “Warm up” dance before you come, so that Mary does not need to review it. Review the two “Review” dances a bit so we have more time for our new dance.

Cheers,

Deb and Faye and Sharon
