Dear Line Dance Family,
We are back to business as usual and recuperating from all the work of Cali Jam over Labor Day Weekend… but we’re good because it was a labor of love!  We continue to thank God above for our amazing Cali Jam Crew members who held it down and made our life so much better!!  We also continue to thank our wonderful Cali Jam Instructors who showed up and showed out!  Man, if you missed our J&J Showcase Dancers, you are at a loss!!! They brought it!!!   And of course, we thank you, our wonderful linedance family for supporting us!!  You must have had a great time because we have already sold 160 tickets for Cali Jam 2017!!!!

We have been getting quite a few requests for dances and that makes it great!  Just continue requesting the dances you want and we’ll keep bringing them to you, whether they are ‘classic’ dances or new ones.

On this past Monday at Community Lutheran, we wore red to honor the memory of one of our Philly LDF – Amber Redz Nicole.  She was shot and killed after having presented a ‘Stop the Violence’ showcase at the Parkside Linedance Event at the same time that Cali Jam was going on.  Nationwide, the LDF has mounted a joint effort to honor her memory by wearing RED as her going-home service is this coming Saturday.  We are also supporting our LD Sister, Angela “Jeterbug” Jeter who is having heart problems and recently had Pacemaker Surgery.  We taught Jeterbug’s dance, Something Sweet, at our Monday Class – Community Lutheran.
