Odds and Ends for this week's dance action in Tidewater

Hello Dancers... From our Weekly Newsletter

***********************************

Hello Dancers,

Again we thank all the very special people who support our dance on Sunday
night. Also we thank our instructor in WCS for the cool move that we learned
last Sunday. This coming Sunday we will teach Country Two-Step at 6:30 and
WCS at 7pm. Judy and I will have all weekend at the Atlantic Seashore Dance
Faire to work on something special for the WCS class.

Thanks to Will's contribution, our web site has gotten very popular on the
internet. If you need some dance related information try it out at
www.twosteptidewater.com. The latest page where you can find items for sale
has several listing but needs to grow. We will post your dance related items
if you send an ad ready to cut & paste. Sorry, but we don't have the time
available to make one up for you.

I have been made aware of some of our supporters who only have access to
email and not the internet. They would like for me to post some kind of
dance event calendar each week. Although I don't have the time and resources
to list everything I will devote a part of this letter to post the special
events that are coming up. If you manage a local studio, club or other
organization that is planning a special dance related event let me know the
particulars and I will include the information at the end of this letter.

Things I have learned in dancing:
by Walter
When I first decided to take up dancing it was because the few good dancers
I noticed a parties seemed to be so confident and having such a great time.
Looking back, I'm not sure if they were truly good dancers or just looked
good to me, a non-dancer. I was one of those who avoided parties and school
functions if they involved dancing. I had no idea what a Ballroom dancer was
or looked like. With all this in mind I was like countless others who decide
to learn how to dance. I thought that you went into a studio, took a few
lessons that involved memorizing some steps and you became a dancer. So, to
get back to the main subject. What I learned in dancing.

First I learned that dancing is much more complicated that I imagined.

Then I learned that I never will be done with learning. Once I became
enlightened the fun began.

I learned that taking lessons would get a person nowhere unless practice was
involved.

I learned that as a rule all dance students had a beginning and mostly were
pretty helpful to others.

I learned that as different as the dances seemed at first, they become more
similar over time.

I learned that unless you use patterns and moves they are soon pushed back
into the cobwebs of forgotten memories.

I learned that although you memorize steps you cannot recall them fast
enough to react while dancing. Soon we depend on reflexes, muscle memory and
habit to make us dance. It becomes more and more automatic.

I learned that dancing develops your confidence and reflexes and balance and
circulation and muscles.

I learned that I have many more friends than before.

I learned to study dancing and try to pick out the skills necessary to lead,
socialize, teach and maneuver on a social dance floor.

I learned that dancing is two way communication between the leader and
follower.

I learned that it's the little things that count the most when talking about
dancing skills.

I learned that my dancing looks much worse on video tape than I want.

And finally, during the last few years, I learned to view dancing as a happy
activity. Not one to get too uptight over.
