East Hill Farm - Last Friday, Saturday & Sunday was the East Hill Farm weekend! Yeah 20 of so Parrots trekked up to Troy NH for a weekend of Friends, Food and Fun. Made a lot of new friends, received repetitive lessons on proper tennis ball retrieval from Chloe and some of us even earned awards for our apparent lack of inhibition. Learned a lot of cool dances and got to teach some of our club favorites.
We also got to celebrate Phil's Diamond Jubilee on St Patty's day. Many Thanks to Paula, Michael, Tammy & Dennis for making us feel so welcome on our first time there. Also many thanks to Al, Marge, Bill, Doraine, Bill & Linda for recommending us. We've been invited back as guest Instructors in December and permanent instructors for March. Noticed a Lot of people were booking for next March when they checked out. If you're interested don't wait to book. Check out the East Hill Farms website here.
Dance Thursdays in Palmer!
March 21st was the scene of the 1st Thursday dance night at the American Legion in Palmer. It was great to see so many folks come out to support it, (I know it's a hike for some and closer for others) We had about 40 People turn up for the debut dance night and after warming up started out with a teach of Alabama Slammin' by Popular request. Got to dance a lot of old favorites and refresh ourselves on some of the harder ones. John & Lisa with the Legion were very welcoming. Many thanks to Wayne & Lauri for working with the Legion to provide us a place to dance. Another cool part about Thursday's is that we plan to run it through the summer. So when the AMVETS closes down Country Bands and Line Dance lessons at the end of June, we'll all get to dance on Thursday and still have our weekends free for BBQ, Long weekend trips to the beach etc etc etc. Also we plan on Adding Partner dances to the teach schedule (Intermediate Line & Partners during the Summer) and going back to to the original schedule come fall. Next Thursday we will review Alabama Slammin and still deciding on our next intermediate teach, Any suggestions?
