Let’s dance in the cul-de-sac!!

      Comments Off on Let’s dance in the cul-de-sac!!

Dancing friends,
Let’s dance together outdoors in our cul-de-sac, beginning next week.
We will have mini-dance parties every Monday and Wednesday at 6:30.
We will begin with our Level 1 dances — and all dancers at all levels are welcome.
Let’s dance:
Ah Si
Cut a Rug
Simply Blue
Good Morning
Rockin’ the Wagon Wheel
Rita’s Waltz
Crash and Burn
My Blue Tree
Simply Mambo
Stroll Along Cha
We will walk through 2 “walls” with the words for each dance, and 2 “walls” with the counts.
Then we will turn on the music and just have fun. No worries if we make mistakes!
Please remember our Covid ground rules:
— we welcome you if you have had at least one vaccine
– remain 2 meters apart — an arm extension on all sides is a perfect line dance space anyways
– this is weather dependent — everyone will need to leave if the weather turns bad
– this is outdoors only — there are no washroom facilities
– wear masks please — although Faye will not wear a mask due to microphone interference
Please remember:
– your water bottle
– good street shoes for an asphalt surface — probably solid runners or cowboy boots
In the cul-de-sac in front of 161/163 Morris
Please park above the cul-de-sac so that we have room to dance — up the hill from the garbage can
Date & Time:

Monday June 7 and Wednesday June 9
We will dance 6:30 until 7:30 or 8:00.

To attend, please email bvldc2@gmail.com
We can accommodate only 8 dancers plus Faye & Deb so
Priority will be given to Level 1 dancers, ….but we are inviting your other BVLD friends to join us.

Due to AHS restrictions, we are only able to accommodate 8 dancers plus Faye and Deb.
You must register to attend.
Please only come once a week at most, in order to allow everyone an opportunity to dance.

You must register with Judy: bvldc2@gmail.com

…looking forward to dancing with you again,

International Dance Day

      Comments Off on International Dance Day
Virgina Haase sent me a note that April 29 is International Dance Day.
“International Dance Day is a global celebration of dance, created by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute, the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO. The event takes place every year on 29 April….”
So dance today.
Dance for joy!!

Thank you to the 39 members who attended the Zoom AGM.
As Deb noted, that is more than half of this year’s members!!
We appreciate your support.
For those of you who were unable to join, the minutes are posted under Governance.

At the end of the meeting, I mentioned that when AHS permits and when local numbers are significantly reduced, we will attempt to resume Spring Term classes, either at the Rec Center or in the cul-de-sac.

Keep watching this website. Keep your fingers crossed that we will dance together soon. Keep safe. Keep well. Keep positive.
