Dear Line Dance Family,
We are still looking for a venue to continue our Monday classes. There are two potential locations we are currently pursuing.
We really sweated it out on Friday. I think I put one or two really fast dances too many in a row. Everybody hung in their though. Thumbs up to our Line Dance Family.

We also attended Jacki Bowie’s Dream Workshop. It was a great event with instructors from all over California, and a special Thanks to Darri Thomos for coming out and joining us from New Orleans. The instructors did a great job presenting their creations.
