Yesterday was Memorial Day, which means it’s (un)officially summer in the USA. Looks like great weather for hot Latin dancing! We especially want to thank everyone who decided to skip the beach last weekend and attend our dance instead. We had a great, enthusiastic crowd!
Sunday night, Dolan brought some flyers with the Web address for Frank Hill’s CarePages site. Frank has now started chemotherapy and he’s hanging in there with lots of support from family and friends, including fellow dancers. Frank’s experience really demonstrates one of the benefits of ballroom dancing: it provides dancers with a kind of “second family.” You always have something interesting to do (dance), something to talk about (dancing), and someone to lend support when you need it (other dancers).
If you are not yet part of the dancing family, now is a great time to get started. Paula is starting a new set of classes at the Macon Health Club and at the Wellness Center this week. Beginner classes are Sundays at the Wellness Center; intermediate classes are Tuesday at the Macon Health Club; and advanced (bronze & above) classes are Thursday at the Macon Health Club. See Paula’s Web site for more details on registration and pricing. We are very excited for the Thursday class since Paula has said we’ll be working on the tango–our favorite!
More news coming soon about our upcoming competitions and a new sponsor. Meanwhile, please check the Local Dance Opportunities page to see where the action is in the month of June.
