Practices: Although, we were scheduled for 2 Tuesdays this month, the City and County has cancelled our Tuesday practices for this month due to continuing issues with the partition and double-booking.  We will update you as soon as we hear from them.    

Social Dance News:
Our National organization has issued a challenge to all chapters for National Ballroom Dance week which will be from September 21-30.  We will be taking up the challenge and participate in the contest.  We will need the help of you, our members, to meet this challenge.
The challenge is to learn a dance (Flash mob), perform it  and record it. The goal here is to participate, enjoy and just have fun.  The dances will be the American Foxtrot and East Coast Swing. You can get a head start by watching the video below which explains the entire choreography step by step.
