Here we go – yesterday it was summer, and today we begin the countdown to Hanukkah & Christmas!  How did the time go by so quickly?  It’s going to be difficult to not get sucked into the craziness that our culture has made of this holiday…but it can be done!  It’s all about pacing ourselves and keeping focused on what needs to be done.  I’m not one to schedule out the next 20 something days on paper, but some of us will do that, with excellent results.  Mental notes and/or a list on the cell phone can be just as effective if we are disciplined and follow them.  It’s all about working with yourself with what YOU feel you need to do – not what the TV is telling you you need to do.  The pressure is real at this time of year, but breathe…and carry on.  It will be ok.  And head on over to the products page to stock up on your gifts of dance lessons!

As you know, Dance With Janet dancers will be participating in the variety show at 1:00 pm this Saturday at Hubble Middle School, 3S600 Herrick Rd, Warrenville, IL 60555. We are the OPENING NUMBER.  Call is at NOON; we will run our dance from 12:15 – 12:30 on the stage in the auditorium.  See those two couples above?  While Vivian & Jih look stunning in their comfies, that color scheme is NOT the costume for Saturday’s performance.  Blonde Janet & Michael have got it right; please dress as they are dressed:  BLACK pants (jeans are ok as long as they are black) and SOLID TOPS in one of these colors:  BLUEREDGREENWHITE, or BLACK.  We will be showing the community that even adults can dance! *;) winking We’ll be dancing Drink to That to Toby Keith’s song, All I Want For Christmas.  Please join us!

Also, it’s FIELD TRIP WEEKEND; if you’ve never tried dancing in the “Real World”, now is your chance!  Come join your fellow classmates and show off what you’ve learned on FRIDAY at Cadillac Ranch & SATURDAY at Warrenville, both starting at 7 pm.  It’s a blast of a party!

I’ll see you on the dance floor!
