Branchin' Out! Mid-April OEP Update

Things have been really rocking with the One Eyed Parrot Dance Club! Here's a quick Update...

Tuesday Night 8 Week Beginner sessions in OTIS 

Well our 8 week session is winding down with just 2 weeks left to go. Made some great new friends and it was immensely satisfying to see them able to get out on the dance floor with us last Saturday night at the Russell VFW event (Sponsored by the AMVETS). We want to give a big shout out to Wendy and Kevin for sponsoring these beginner sessions, Kris for coming out and supporting and Maria for assisting every week. 
You guys Rock.....

Country Dance Night at the Russell VFW (Sponsored by the AMVETS)
Speaking of Russell, last Saturday was awesome with 92 people in attendance!! We had more people ask for business cards in 1 night than in the last 2 months. The people that run the place were very friendly and all around great folks and by the way, Chickenwire REALLY rocked the house. If you missed them, the BAD NEWS is you missed a great show. These guys were awesome! The GOOD NEWS is they’re ALWAYS AWESOME and you get another chance to see them, this Friday, April 26th at the Chicopee AMVETS. Playing upbeat toe tapping rhythms, they will keep you up on the floor and dancing all night long with a mix of Country, Rock n Roll, hot Southern Rock. See ya there.

Dance Night Thursdays in Palmer
Thursdays are rocking with intermediate Line Dance lessons followed by non-stop dancing till 10 PM.  Not only do we now have a venue to teach more intermediate dances but we get the time to practice all the ones we love and never get to do! Another neat part of Thursdays is that when the Chicopee AMVETS shuts down in the summer we'll still have a dance venue to support that will leave all our weekends free for outdoor summery type stuff!! Did someone say Hampton Beach?

New Venue Granby!
Starting Monday night April 22, we're starting beginner Line dance and Basic 2 Step in Granby, Ma. Starting at 6:30 at the American Legion near the corner of 202 and Pleasant we'll kick things off with Beginner Line until 7:30 and then kick off a 4-6 Week series of beginner 2 Step lessons. Got a lot of great feedback from folks about this location and the beginners sessions , so we're really looking forward to it. These lessons are specifically geared to the brand new dancer and will focus heavily on the basics of Frame, Lead & Follow, etc. This hall has a great wood floor and plenty of parking so spread the word.
