From Janice:


Well, we have one more session before the summer break from weekly classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will have a one week break after the current session ends, then begin the first week of April. I am trying something a little different this time. Tuesdays will be the same format...two one hour classes with a 15 minute break in between. The first class will be a beginning level West Coast Swing class. It also offers a cost break if you want to repeat the class to review and refine the basics. The second class will be an Intermediate Waltz class. We will look at both traditional and cross step waltz, shadow, and turning. For this class, some waltz experience is required.

Thursday night will be different for this last 5 week session. Actually, I am trying to heal from a recent shoulder injury sustained during a dance class in Coupeville last week. So to take some pressure off my shoulder, I decided to try a practice night. We will start the evening with a 15 minute mini workshop. Then a practice dance to a mix of CD music for different dance styles. I will be there to help if you need it...or you can just dance and practice any moves you have in your repertoire. It is intended to be a fun social evening where you can move at your own pace. I have been asked by some folks in classes about how do you know what dance to do to the music being played. So, I will announce some suggestions throughout the evening for what could be danced to some of the music...or you can ask if you like. I hope that folks from classes and members of the PT dance community will all come together to dance. I will set up a couple of tables so we can chat when not dancing. I'll provide some treats. Bring something if you wish. We can brush up so we are ready for the OPD dance, the Ipod Shuffle Dance, Salsa Night, Zydeco or whatever. Please spread the word.



15 minute mini workshop then CD mix for dancing.
