Counting the days till our performance at the Tubman Museum’s International Taste of Soul on August 30! We have our dances and our music picked out, and my new Latin costume has come from Latino Dancewears. I promise they are not compensating me to say this (yet!) but I have been impressed with the quick and responsive service that this company provides. They do custom made-to-measure dresses with high quality stones but they also have more economical options including a great sale section.
This week ends our Tuesday night waltz class at Madison Studio. Starting September 8 we’ll be teaching bronze level cha-cha on Tuesday nights; we are also featuring silver level cha-cha and tango workshops on Sunday, September 20. You can email if you’d like more information or to sign up for any of our classes and workshops.
And, of course, Friday is our monthly dance at Howard Community Club! 8:00-10:30 p.m., $5 admission, casual dress, bring your song requests. Daniel has been picking out new songs from Postmodern Jukebox and I’m trying to do my part finding cool things on the radio like this or this.
Finally, I’d like to give a shout-out to my dear colleague Sydney Chalfa, whose son Matthew is getting married next weekend. Sydney and Matthew took a lesson from us last week and they are dancing the rumba for their mother-son dance! Congratulations to the happy couple and a very proud mother of the groom!
