Dear Line Dance Family,
We are still looking for a venue to continue our Monday classes.  We have reached out to one of the LA County Park facilities in Gardena and hopefully that will become available within the next 30 days.

Friday was a fun class.  We kept the pace up and everyone was sweating by the end of the night.  We want to give a shout out to Deborah Killingsworth who was visiting from Chicago.

 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.
