Tweet Happy New Year, dancers and soon-to-be dancers! (see what I did there?) We are counting the days to the Royal Palm Dancesport Winter Frolic. Later this month we’ll be taking a couple of private lessons to brush everything up before we hit the competition floor. Our next group class is also starting soon–Wednesdays at 8 p.m. […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Tweet Oh MAN, October is flying by. It’s already been 2 weeks since we got back from the Carolina Fall Classic (I’m about to update our Competitive Highlights page; stand by) and a week since I got to take a workshop and private lesson with a new instructor for us, James.

Tweet MSDE’s annual recital, “Ballet, Boogie, & Broadway,” kicks off in just under 5 hours. We had an excellent dress rehearsal last night, I got to leave my costumes on the premises so I don’t have to carry them over there again today, I have all the correct shoes in my bag, and (hopefully) the […]Continue Reading...

Tweet Not really. (Do you see a pattern developing here?) But it turns out that Team LaJack is prominently (albeit facelessly) featured in the TV ad for Dancing Stars of Central Georgia! Finally I understand why the DWTS pros go to the trouble of dressing cute and putting makeup on for rehearsals. Our friend Sheree’ saw […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Tweet This weekend in conjunction with the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, the Macon Friends of the Library held their annual Old Book Sale. They sell donated books and library books that have been taken out of circulation at fantastic prices. I never have any luck going to the sale with a specific agenda, but it […]Continue Reading...
