Well, a lot actually.
The dance last Friday was great fun with a super energetic lesson by the SodaPopHop folks, Drea & Glen. And DJ Nel provided a fabulous selection of music.
This week started with a bang as we had a record turnout for Steven James first East Coast Swing class. The beginners are well on their way and the intermediates learned a couple of really useful moves. We are looking forward to the remaining weeks.
Finally, we are preparing to welcome the Rebelljo band on December 11. These musicians are very versatile and will be able to provide the songs we love to dance to.
Our all swing dance is coming up this Friday, November 13. We are fortunate to have Drea Burck and Glen Cameron on hand to give a lesson in East Coast Swing (actually two lessons; beginner at 7:45 and intermediate at 8:30). Get the details here.
Then on Monday, November 16, Steven James steps in for five weeks of East Coast lessons. The beginner level starts at 7:30 and the intermediate at 8:45. As usual there is some practice time between classes. Get more information and sign up here.
I am sure that everyone who attended our dance on Friday, October 16, will agree that Michelle Regal taught a great lesson. All the leaders will be scrolling a lot more now.
We are especially grateful that Michelle was able to fill in at the last minute when Sean Browne was sidelined with an injury. Get well soon, Sean. We will ask you back another time.
Remember, there is no class on Monday, October 12. West Coast Swing with Nelson Clarke resumes on October 19. So enjoy some turkey and practice your basics. It is not too late to register.
And, on the Friday before class resumes (October 16) come out to our all Swing Dance. We will start with short beginner and intermediate West Coast Swing lessons and to dance with us. It promises to be a great evening.
October is West Coast Swing month at TSDS.
We have a five week series starting Oct 5. The one and only Nelson Clarke is teaching both beginner and intermediate levels. Register here.
Here is more information about our classes.
And at our next dance on Oct 16 Sean Browne is coming all the way from Waterloo to give us West Coast Swing lessons before the dance begins.
