Thank you, my friends, for your presence in my life.  I am so incredibly grateful for all of you, and so honored to be mentioned by name in every one of your Christmas letters which I’ve received.  Thank you.  I simply cannot imagine life without you.  I’m still teary-eyed with delight that so many close friendships have been forged thru our common love of dancing, even though I’ve seen it happen countless times.  This dance community means the world to me; my closest relationships (but for only TWO) began here, and I’d be lost without you.  No matter what, I won’t be!!  I may be slow, but I’m not stupid. 

Your generosity to me at Christmastime always overwhelms me, and this year is no exception.  Thank you all so much for your gifts; I am again so appreciative of the gift cards and candy and cash and candy and cookies and candy and goodies and did I mention the candy?  I sure wish I didn’t have such a sweet tooth, but alas.  It’s just another cross I must bear.  I’ll try to make everything last to the new year, but I’m not promising!!

Merry Christmas, thru cyberspace.  Whether or not you celebrate Christmas, I wish you a lovely, peaceful week with your family and friends.  The Elgin & Hanover Park classes will run on Monday December 30th, but all others are on break until the regular schedule resumes on January 6th.  We’ll start broadcasting virtual classes in January for those who can’t make them in person.  And WE WILL DANCE on Sunday December 29th from 2 – 5 pm at the Wheaton Community Center in the Willow Point Room #210 (1777 S. Blanchard St., Wheaton IL).  Hope to see you soon!!

One more thing:  REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE 2021 DWJ CRUISE TO ALASKA!!!!  Visit for the info & registration form.  $250 holds your cabin, and you have till 3/3/21 for a full refund if your plans change.  Woohoo!!!
