Dance Night Friday Dec 4 – Salsa Night Dec 5 – Big Band Brunch Sunday Dec 6

This Friday is our Dance Night for December.  If you haven’t been to a Dance Night yet, here’s the scoop.  Once a month we have reserved St. Ambrose Hall in Little Hocking, Ohio for a ballroom dance practice night.  You don’t have to belong to either of the clubs to attend.  We charge $15/couple $7.50/person and $5/teenager to attend.  The money is given to St. Ambrose to pay for the use of the hall.  There is no live music, Peter Ianniciello puts together a play list with 2 songs back-to-back of the same dance:  2 foxtrots, 2 swing, etc.  That way you can remember the dance steps with the first song and practice with the second.  We have a dance workshop from 8-9, and the music starts to play at 9.

We hope to appeal to a wide variety of dancers in the area, but we’d especially like to see new dancers or rusty dancers out on the dance floor outside of a lesson.  Bring snacks and non-alcoholic beverages and enjoy the evening with your dance partner and fellow dancers.  It’s a great date night!

SATURDAY NIGHT is Salsa Night at the Old Marina, across from Lowes in Vienna.  Music starts at 10pm, it’s Bruce’s Bday (the DJ) so it should be quite a celebration!

Also – This Sunday December 6th, there  is a BIG BAND BRUNCH from noon – 3

Cost $10 for dance AND food!
Six Pence Pub
l956-7th Street

If coming by interstate Rt. #50, take 7th st. exit, make a right, one fourth mile up on left. Across from Park Hardware.

Coming up next weekend –  a Formal Dance  at St. Ambrose for the Tempo Dance Club.  If you’re not a member, it’s never too late to join, and we’d love to see you there.  If you are a member – see you there!  I’ll send another reminder next week with more details.

Dance Night Friday Nov 20th!

Now that you’re on a roll – don’t let your dancing shoes cool down.  Keep up the practice this Friday at St. Ambrose Hall.  Peter will have another great play list for us to dance to, and another workshop.  The ballroom dance workshop is from 8-9 and the continuous dance tunes will run from 9 to 11.  Bring your snacks for a fun night out – and a great chance to practice the moves you learned in dance class the last few weeks!    See you there!   – Nancy
