January 1, time change

Posted by on 27 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: Practice

Hi all,

There is another special holiday event at Sonny’s on January 1, so we need to reschedule practica for the day. We’re currently planning to dance 3:30-5:30 pm on January 1, then go back to our regular 4:30-6:30 schedule for all subsequent Sundays. Please pass the word — and watch this space especially on the weekend in case there need to be any further adjustments.

See you dancing soon!




Suelta is for all levels!

Posted by on 27 Dec 2011 | Tagged as: Notes From The Lab, Practice

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in Suelta–which is happening this Sunday 4:30-5:00. This includes folks who are still new-ish to casino. It’s a great way to work on footwork and timing and improving your dancing. So I’m encouraging everyone to take advantage of this opportunity (and thanks Ofer for leading us!). Don’t sit it out!
