The COVID-19 virus is paramount in everyone’s minds, no doubt.  I just received word that Wheaton Park District has cancelled their spring session of classes, which runs through the end of May.  Who knows how long they will remain officially closed.  I will therefore be running line dances and classes from my kitchen, Monday thru Friday, for the next eight weeks.  WOW.  Eleven weeks of this.  I am stunned.

To help with this, Courtney thought of a fantastic offer:

Register for TWO Virtual Classes or Dances, get your THIRD (an $8 class) FREE!  Your discount CAN be used more than once, but not in the same transaction.  Use code LOCKDOWN.  Funny, huh?!  Find it all at https://www.dancewithjanet.com/virtual

Other items of note:  

– I’m moving the Touchbase Today meetings on Zoom from 12:30 CST to 11:00 am CST, starting MONDAY 4/6.  I hope this doesn’t mess up anyone’s schedule; I’ll be attending seminars at noon for the next few weeks, so I need to reschedule our chat times.  I’ll share the seminars as Facebook Watch Parties, though; they’re gonna be SO inspirational!
– THIS FRIDAY’s dance is MOVED to SATURDAY this week ONLY, because I prefer not to dance on Good Friday
– Introducing THEMED Dances!  Tuesday’s will be Chicagoland Classics, aka Favorites from Cadillac Ranch.  Saturday I’m treating myself to dance only line dances choreographed by my good friends and travel buddies, Lynn Card & Rob Holley
– To celebrate Easter, I invite you to attend Saturday’s dance at NO CHARGE (registration is still required)
