I've been teaching for well over a decade, and I'm still amazed at the friendships I've made and watched develop between other dancers.  This hobby we all share is such a bond; we come out of the woodwork to dance together and hang out.  What a social club this has become; what a passion!!  Thank you all for sharing it with me!  It is my honor and privilege to serve and lead you.  If anyone is feeling discouraged or lonely, I encourage you to get back to dancing, where the stable, content people are – or try it for the first time!  Emotionally healthy people dance, and are ready and willing to include you in the group!  Our arms are open wide for you – join us!!!

If you are in town this Memorial Day weekend, opportunities abound to Dance With Janet!  The most significant event this weekend is our annual "kick-off the season" parade on Memorial Day itself, in Itasca.  Call is at 9 am, and details can be found at www.dancewithjanet.com/calendar (scroll down to the RED calendar and click on Memorial Day).  If you have EVER danced with me, you'll be fine performing – but you need to wear your DWJ shirt!  Don't forget the details! *;) winking

As we enjoy a day off of work on Monday, remember our veterans, and the sacrifices they made for our freedom.  That we live in this incredible country at all is because of THEM.  Freedom does not come free!  Hug a veteran, especially this weekend, and remember.  So many have died so we can live here, in a democratic society, FREE.  Yes we have our problems in the good ol' USA – but it's still a phenomenal place in which to live.

God Bless America!
