You asked for it; you’ve got it!  I received approval from the WHEATON VFW (0N731 Papworth St.) to stay an extra hour after our dances on Sunday afternoons.  I’ll be teaching COUPLES LESSONS from 4:15 – 5:15 on those Sundays with Ray, when he’s in town (which will be more often than you’d expect; he’s retired now!!).  We’ll introduce lead & follow moves in country & swing, as well as partner pattern dances.  Cost will be $8/person for the lesson only, or $5/person for the lesson if you’ve attended the dance before the lesson, from 1-4 pm.  I’ll post the dances to be taught as I finalize the schedule; let me know any requests you may have.  We start next week:

  • March 7 & 21
  • April 11 & 18 (with Ray)
  • May 2, 16, & 30
