CALL YOU OUT!
Here is where we get to pick on our readers, instead of each other! Phil is calling out Bob... You know who you are. Last night at Elks, Phil was teaching the follower's part (since I was in Florida). Bob yelled out that they would rather have Mindia there. The other students reacted with lots of "Ohhhhhhhhs." Later during class, Phil picked on Bob. Reminding him to never heckle the person with a mic. Good thing I'm home.

* 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.

Hope to see you dancing soon,
(Phil has been lazy on the couch lately... He used to contribute his two cents to writing this newsletter, about 10%. But now I get full credit Lol!)
