Thanks again to the large group that comes out dancing with us each week.

Here is the line-up for this weekend:
Friday Night - We are sure to make another of Karter's great social dances. If you haven't been to one you are missing out on a great evening. He always makes sure there is lots of food, dancing and fun. This Friday he is teaching another one of those famous moves from "Dancing with the Stars"  The cost is $10.00 and the dance runs from 8-10:30. Great entertainment!

Saturday Night - Judy & I are going to a luau at the PWP dance in the VFW hall on Bartee street near Military Circle. Dual State is the Band. They start at 9pm. We are going to be giving a dance performance then have a great time for the remainder of the night.

Sunday night is going to be a great time as we have a holiday the next day.  We are taking advantage of this and staying open an extra hour. For those new to our Sunday dance this has become a tradition (or maybe an excuse to dance an extra hour) - Still $5.00 ~~ This Sunday we are teaching beginner Hustle (Three Count) at 6:30 and then dancing until 11pm.

~~ Sunday 09-11 (Patriot Day) - ECS at 6:30 then dance until 10pm
~~ Sunday 09-18 - Rumba at 6:30 then dance until 10pm
~~ Sunday 09-25 - Beginner WCS at 6:30 then dance until 10pm

We will no longer be holding dances at our former location, A Time to Dance, Dance Studio.  We will be moving all activities to the Dancesport VA dance studio, which is much larger, and has an air conditioner which handles a larger crowd, more comfortably.
~~~~ About "DanceSport VA" - The DanceSport VA studio is located on Arrowhead Drive between Princess Anne and Newtown Rd. From the Expressway take an exit onto Newtown Road South, turn left on Princess Anne then Right onto Arrowhead just past Big Al's muffler. The parking lot is not large but there are plenty of nearby business with parking room at night and on Sundays.  One, very convenient parking area is in front of the small "strip mall" which fronts on Princess Anne, only a hundred feet or so from the studio, on Arrowhead.

The studio has a large (3000 sq ft) dance floor as well as a separate smaller (2000 sq ft) dance floor. It is a very clean, well maintained studio. They also have dance shoes and apparel for sale. They have a very good Air Conditioning system. The DanceSport staff has been very supportive of us and will make everyone feel welcome. We have been assured that we can have Sunday night without interruption throughout the year.  Note:  Two Step Tidewater Virginia is NOT affiliated with DanceSport VA, or with ANY dance studio.  We simply rent dance floor space for our dances.  We hope everyone who has enjoyed the social dance on Sunday will continue to attend. We will do everything we can to make this transition as smooth as possible.

You can check out the studio and find a photo.  Click on the link "DanceSport VA" or go to http://www.twosteptidewater.com/quick_links_page.htm

**************
Judy and I are offering Private and Group lessons in most dances. Please contact us if interested.

We would also like to get something started in the Churchland, Western Branch area of Tidewater. If you know of an organization, club or church that may be interested in working with us please contact us.


Below is a sample of a weekly dance tip. More are posted at this link Dance Tips Menu

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

Dance tip of the week:

Improve your social skills through dancing

When asked to list the benefits of dancing most folks list:  1) exercise,  2) improved motor skills, 3) improved coordination, and 3) learning more about music and timing.

One important benefit that is usually overlooked is how we gain confidence in interacting with others.

Think about how you felt toward attending a large social event prior to becoming a dancer and how you feel about it now. Although some people have always been comfortable in most settings, becoming a dancer gives others much more confidence in dealing with people at social events.

Now when you talk to others about social dancing this should be the first thing mentioned. Social dancing improves social skills.

We'll  include Ballroom, Swing, WCS, Disco, Folk, or just churches or other clubs with dances.)  We will attempt to post/remove events within a couple of days - but we cannot accept responsibility for missing an event or any other reason.  We will attempt to verify ALL links, to prevent any offensive or off-topic links, but, again, cannot be responsible for other's.
