CAT STORY OR PHIL'S GLORY?????
So we have been writing & trying to finish this last newsletter story. I suggested writing about Jasper Cat & his friend the mail lady. But Phil said that he thought there has been too much attention on the cat (I can't believe he said that in front of Jasper Lol!), & wanted a different direction. Then he got up & was off & running laps around the kitchen. Jasper chased him like a dog. Then of course we had to shoot some videos. Ok... back to the newsletter... Where were we? Trying to finish & figure out the last story. But Phil got up again, heading towards the cat. I got irritated & told him that play time was over. He said, "How can I resist him? He is too cute!" So I realized that this situation would be our perfect last story. Nothing like real life happening in the moment. Wait, I hear more distractions. Phil is now making sounds & noises to get Jasper's attention. Maybe we ought to re-name the newsletter title: JASPER'S ADVENTURES... & his sidekicks! (Btw... cat & animal lovers, ask us about the amazing new cat documentary "KEDI!")

* All of our classes are drop-in (some do run in a series). No partner needed for any of our classes. No prior dance experience needed for Beginner classes. Two left feet are welcomed; we will introduce you to your right foot! (Phil wanted credit for that last comment.)
* Once you have moved up from our Beginner level classes to Intermediate and then later Advanced, you are welcome to continue taking our Beginner classes for FREE! We want to encourage you to continue working on your basics; that is most important to develop a strong foundation. The best dancers usually are the ones who have worked on their basics for years. When you keep taking Beginner classes, you are also helping the new students to progress faster, since they get to rotate & dance with more experienced dancers.
We hope that you have enjoyed this episode of "As the Dancer Turns..." I know that we have! Stay tuned for more entertaining issues.
