More Dancing

Thanks Jason, for the wonderful comments! It was a lot of fun, whatever the outcome.

A new round of classes is about to start. It is always an exciting time. My "More Ballroom" and "More Swing" classes are for those who have already had some dance -- it is always fun and challenging to make sure everyone learns something new, whether they have taken 1 or 10 of my classes before! The beginning classes are always delightful, too. The turnaround at about week #4 always makes me smile -- the dancers really begin to smooth out as they have to think less and less about the basic rhythms.

There is a regular place to dance on Sunday evenings in Muncie now -- it is billed as a single's dance, but couples are also encouraged to come. It is at Mr. DJ & Co., White River Plaze (at the corner of White River Blvd. and Nichols Ave.) -- 7:00-10:00pm (or maybe 11:00 -- I'm not sure) -- $6.00/person. Enter under the "White River Plaza" sign on the White River Blvd. side of the building (the Bingo entrance). Go up the stairs (1 flight). The studio is on the left. Hope to see you there!

Swing contest

My son, Joseph, and I placed 3rd in a swing contest at James Dean Days last weekend! We had a lot of fun, and we got (by far!) the biggest applause from the audience. (Even the 1st and 2nd place winners couldn't figure out why we didn't get 1st place!) That was OK -- how often do you walk away with $100 for dancing for 15 minutes?
