Summertime, Summertime

Well Summer appears to have been thrust upon us.

Let's see, what's goin on...

Had a great trip to Mishnock got to see old friends and make new ones. 34 of us trekked to the Barn and as always, Dan & Kelly were the ultimate hosts, even inviting us out to hear a band with them at JC's after the Barn Closed. You want a great time this fall? Wanna  learn a smorgasbord of cool dances? The you have to check out the Hudson Valley Dance weekend in October at the Hudson Valley Resort & Spa (map). It is truly an amazing event with 6 Lesson Rooms and over 60 hours of Dance Instruction including, Beginner, Country, All Request & Lead & Follow Evening Dances. (And did I mention 2 open bars)

Here are some of the ones taught at Hudson Valley  in March...  Back in the Day,  50 Ways,  Drive by Baby,  Every Storm,  Hootenanny,  Lovin' Tonight,  Sweet Revenge... Just to name a few......

PALMER -Last Thursday was a Cool night both with dancing and the fact that the Palmer AC units rock! It may have been 91Degrees outside but the OEP's we're cool all night long! We reviewed Sweet Revenge and Hootenanny and then taught Have you ever see the Rain (By Request) It's has nice to have some of our Monday night people join us. 
This week we'll be learning a wicked cool low intermediate Dance "Half Past Nothin'" which you are gonna love! 

CHICOPEE - Got the word back from the Chicopee AMVETS that the 1st Friday night back will be June 21st. The band schedules appear to be changed so we'll let you know who's playing when we find out. 

GRANBY - We missed  our new friends last week due to the Holiday but will be back on June 3rd with a brand new Dan Albro Dance and the last night of the 6 week Beginner 2 Step Lessons. 

Starting next week and going forward as our beginners progress we will be moving to a high Beginner / Low Intermediate teach format with a Partner Dance teach.  (Similar to the Teach format at the Chicopee AMVETS without the band)
