After a few weeks of not much dancing, we turn over a new leaf tomorrow and head into a week–actually, more like a month–of TONS of dancing. Hooray! Here we go:
Tomorrow: private lesson with Eddie and then workshop with Eddie right here in Macon at the Howard Community Club, with our 4th Sunday dance to follow at 7 p.m. as usual. We have had 30 RSVPs so far and could probably squeeze in a few more. Email me (laura at dldancers dot com), comment on the “Workshop with Eddie” post here on DLDancers.com, or RSVP to “Dance Workshop with Eddie Ares” on Facebook.
Monday & Wednesday: Jane Madison of Madison Studio is out of town visiting her daughter (the lovely & talented Faith Madison, recently promoted to the corps de ballet of Colorado Ballet) and has asked Daniel and me to substitute-teach the ballet class that I usually take. We’re going to start them off with the waltz on Monday. Who knows what could happen on Wednesday? Also on Monday, we are teaching our first private lesson to an engaged couple getting married in December. Soooooper excited about that.
Next Saturday (Oct. 2) we have another lesson with Eddie up at Academy Ballroom. They had to re-do the floor again (2nd time in less than a year, I think) at Academy after an unfortunate plumbing incident but it has all worked out for the best considering that they were able to add another 400 square feet to the studio when they did it.
October 4 begins our next series of ballroom classes. Click here and scroll down for details.
October 7-9 we’ll be in Missouri visiting my family. If we get a long enough break from eating (huge family dinner Friday; huge family dinner Saturday; buy new pants Sunday before leaving for airport), we are thinking about trying to catch a dance here. One of my favorite things about ballroom dancing is that you can almost always find a place to do it!
October 14-16 is the Hotlanta Dance Challenge. We are not dancing (er, that I know of) but might try to get up there to watch.
October 22-24 is the weekend we’d really like to clone ourselves. We had to choose between the Atlanta Dance Classic, Stars over Macon, and the Carolina Fall Classic. We’re going to North Carolina, but it was a tough call. Those of you that are local, please consider attending Stars over Macon if you’re not already going. I hear that nearly all the tables are already sold but individual tickets should still be available. It’s a fantastic event for a great cause. We just couldn’t pass up what looks to be one of the biggest amateur comps we’ve been to. The question is: can we learn enough Viennese waltz and Bolero steps tomorrow in our lesson with Eddie to get through a 1:30 competition round, thereby enabling us to enter Gold level events? Stay tuned!
