It’s snowing over at Slim Paley’s site today; turns out that the snow is a WordPress feature so I had to put up a post here just to make it snow on DLDancers as well! WordPress-hosted blogs can turn on the snow by going to Appearance –> Extras and clicking “Show snow” or some such; we self-hosted blogs have to download a plugin. I think WordPress’s snow will automatically stop falling on a given date but since ours is plugin snow, someone may have to remind me to turn it off! (“Uh, Laura, it’s still snowing on your Web site, and it’s JUNE.”) Out-of-date snow would be right up there with leaving your Christmas lights up till St. Patrick’s Day.
Meanwhile, our year of dancing is winding down. We danced with Madison Studio at Pinegate and John-Wesley Villas on Saturday (video coming soon), taught our last group lesson of 2010 on Monday, and finally decided not to compete at Savannah Dance Festival, although we may go as spectators. In the interim we are heading to Missouri for a little holiday visit and still trying to figure out where to ring in the New Year. We may be popping champagne and dancing around our own living room! There’s lots of good stuff on tap for 2011: our group class will resume on January 3 and the class is leaning in favor of dancing in the spring recital, so choreographing a formation routine could be in our future. Stay tuned, and let it snow!
