Practica on 12/16 will be a Holiday Social

Posted by on 09 Dec 2012 | Tagged as: Events, Practice, Social

Let’s celebrate the holiday season on 12/16 with a potluck social and “practica-lite” at Sonny’s at our regular time. Please bring snacks or beverages to share. We’ll supply cups, plates and forks, but finger food is still easiest. We’ll have music for dancing and there will be ruedas on and off throughout the two hours–it will be a little more free-form than usual.
