I have been listening to the Rise Up Challenge every day for the past 2 weeks, and I can’t believe how encouraging it is.  I’ve been sharing it to my Dance With Janet FB page daily; take a watch!  2-3 guests speak in the 90 minute-time slot, and I haven’t heard a bad one yet.  Jeremy Camp was incredible yesterday!  Replays are only up for a short time; the main website is http://www.riseupworld.com.  You don’t have to be an entrepreneur to benefit!!

As things have been changing in the DWJ line dance world through this pandemic, thank you sincerely for your patience.  I used to wonder why all the technical equipment was needed to record or perform songs; now I know.  Playing music clearly through the sound waves and recordings is no easy task.  Courtney and I are trying very hard to serve you, and we get frustrated when things aren’t perfect, as you do.  I am so grateful for your understanding, and I appreciate you.  

However, the Virtual Line Dance DWJ World continues, and I find myself with a solid, regular schedule.  If you’d like to dance with me even while we are all quarantined, I offer the following:
