CALL YOU OUT!
Here is where we get to pick on our readers, instead of each other! Phil & I are guest teaching at an OC event in a few weeks. A student sent me the flyer for the event. It said, "Phil Adams & Mindia will be teaching..." I'm calling out the person who forgot to list my last name Lol. But wait... maybe it was intentional. Meaning that there is only one Mindia, kinda like Cher or Madonna. So I really only need my first name. Whereas there are millions of guys named Phil, so Phil Adams needs his last name too. Forget the call you out after all.
TUNE-UP YOUR PLAYLIST!
We want to share with you our favorite songs of the week!

* 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.
