Dear Line Dance Family,
Only  10 more days left until Cali Jam.  In preparation for Cali Jam, and in order to handle the post Cali Jam wear down, we will NOT be having classes at either FAME or Community Lutheran for a two week period.  No classes starting next Monday through Friday September 9th.  Our first class after Cali Jam will be on Monday, September 12, 2016.

We were trying to practice dances for Cali Jam on Friday.  The countdown has really started.  We had a lot of fun laughing and trying to remember steps to some of the older dances.

There was a great turnout at Marva Black’s event on Sunday.  Line dancers came from all over the state, Ramona Pam, Novella and crew represented Northern California.  Ed Griffith, Pam Jackson and team came up from San Diego.  The IE was in the house as were the Los Angeles line dancers .

We learned a new dance on Monday called “joy Ride” courtesy of Gladys Smith from Chicago.  The class got in a great sweat from the other dances too.
