Happy New Year Dancers!
I hope you were able to dance in the New Year! If not, this Friday night January 8th Saturday January 16th is the first “Dance Night” will be a 50’s Dance at Ambrose Hall. We are excited to SWING into 2010 with guest instructors for the workshop. Edie and Tim King have graciously agreed to hold a Swing Dance workshop. The workshop will be from 8 – 9 pm, with dance music playing from 9 – 11 pm. We will also play a lot of swing music so we can practice what we just learned.
Here’s a bit about Tim and Edie …
Tim and Edie King of Middleport, Ohio began dancing in 1990, as students of a popular area instructor, Gerald Powell. They have been trained in ballroom, swing, and Latin dances, and have assisted Powell in many of his group beginner classes. Along with dancing for their own enjoyment, they have appeared in numerous talent and variety shows that benefit local organizations and charities. Their teaching emphasis is to help beginner students become comfortable with the basic steps and patterns, while encouraging them to keep dancing for the lifelong benefits of physical exercise and social enjoyment that it offers.
We hope to get some teenagers at this dance night, so please encourage kids 13 and over to join us! You can call it a 50’s dance instead of swing…that might help!
Since we are bringing the King’s up for the workshop, I’d like to get an idea of how many people will be there for the workshop.
So – please take a minute to send an email to Nancy_Miller@Woodcraft.com and let me know if you can make it. Along with the reply, give me at least one suggestion to make Dance Night better for you.
