Dance Club Events, Parties and Special Programs 2020

Dear Dancing Friends. Due to COVID-19 all classes and parties are on hold, except private lessons. We pray that you all stay healthy and we can see you soon. Because we cannot be with you in person, we want to provide you with a ”distant learning” opportunity. To see video reviews of many of the patterns we taught at different classes during this interrupted semester, and to view tutorials of various dances, please click Dance Classes and go to "Distant Learning." We also keep adding tutorials as announced in our email memos. We are optimists! Still hope to start Summer classes on June 11th and our annual Dancing Under the Stars Gala Garden Party on July 25th. For details, click Dance parties and events. We wish you all good health and a quick Wiedersehen! Esther and Mark
