What a Great Night!!

Everyone was in a festive mood last Friday for our last get together before Christmas and we  had a great time as always  with Radio Ranch!  We didn't charge for the lessons as a Christmas Thank You for everyone supporting the club throughout the year. We Retaught "Footloose Again" and Dan Albro's partner dance "Jackson Strait" and for the 2nd week in a row the floor was absolutely filled for the partner lessons. Nice to see so many couples out dancing. We also got to celebrate Doreen's birthday! Thanks to all who came and make it one she wouldn't forget. Thanks also to everyone that brought in something for our Vets at the Soldiers home.  You guys rock! Remember No Lessons on the 23rd, our next date is December 30th so we'll see you there. Have a Very Merry Christmas!

Dec 9th at the Chicopee AMVETS!

           What a Fun night!
It's was great to see everyone out having a good time before everything gets crazy for Christmas. We had a good group for the line lessons and filled the floor for the couples lessons. Speaking of lessons, we started off  with a review of Alabama Slamming (Which BTW ) we're getting a lot of positive feedback on and then taught the Beginners couple dance Jamblya. We followed up with a teach of the high/beginners dance Footloose Again  to the remake of Footloose by Blake Shelton and then did a teach of Dan Albro's Jackson Strait. The rest of the night we kept the beat uptempo, mixing it up with a a combo of all request Line and partner dances till closing. It's was great to get to dance with so many friends we haven't seen in a while as well as our friends we look forward to partying  with every week. Silver & Gold, you guys Rock!

Last Friday at the AMVETS!! Stratos

If you missed last Friday, you missed a great performance by Stratos at the Chicopee AMVETS. They started out with a hard driving up beat tempo never let up, keeping us up and dancing all night long! The female lead (Erica) sounded great and did a great rendition of Sin Wagon and even impressed us with her ability to not only line dance during the performance but to learn new dances while doing so. The band was down to earth and enjoyed performing and it showed.
