A Bust and a Boot Camp

This past weekend was quite a ride!  We were scheduled to dance at Overtime Bar & Grill in Lombardon Saturday.  When Jeff arrived to set up at 7:30, he was told to start the dancing “show” after the Hawks game – meaning around 10:30 pm!  That wasn’t going to work, so the whole evening was a bust. …

Could You Dance In These?

I can be pretty open minded (sometimes…it can happen) and I have a decent collection of dance shoes…but I admit Deb wins this round. Whether she’s dancing in class or at a bar, she’ll be in shoes like these – hence her nickname, “Spike”. I couldn’t walk in these, much less dance in them –…

The Life Of A Line Dancer…

Rob Ryan has been dancing with me for quite a while now and has recently “graduated” to harder dances.  Meaning he had joined the intermediate line dance class(es)…and has a tale to tell about last Monday’s class that is guaranteed to get you chuckling.  I had to share it – enjoy! “The buzz about Janet…
