Monday dance lessons
Happening This Week – Mar. 19, 2017
Hello dance friends,
Well, we just had a fine time at last week’s dance. Amy and Kim topped off the Slangpolska for us, and it looked to me like everyone was picking up on it and have a good time doing so. I like this dance a lot.
As to this week, Lee Cowan (the tall guy from Salem), and Louise Beauchamp (one of our original members) will demonstrate the various possibilities you can incorporate into the Schottis dance that you know already. There are probably 101 variations that make this staid dance much more interesting than it appears on the surface. You could learn stuff you don’t know yet. You ought to come join us for this!
Our master of ceremonies this week is Ms. Liz (should that be mistress of ceremonies?) who I thought was on hand last week, but was surprised. Nonetheless, we like Liz a lot as our D.J. You decide!
Our lessons begin somewhat promptly at 7:30. In any event, the doors are open at 7 pm just for fun.
We hope to see you there!
Thank You Musicians!
A big thanks to the musicians who play a few tunes for us almost every Monday! It really livens things up.
Why? These days our membership fees are just almost enough to meet our expenses. We didn't want to raise them this year, so we're putting a donation jar on the entry table and hoping for the best! If you can help, thank you!
Monday dances September through May are from 7-10 pm. These dances include a free lesson from 7:30 to 8:30. Summer Monday dances start at 7:30 and do not include lessons. Admission is $5 per person or yearly membership is $60 (pro-rated for folks who start later in the year) — a great deal! We dance at Nordia House, 8800 SW Oleson Rd, Portland. Click here for map.
