This is our last Newsletter in 2022. Classes are working well together and it thrills us to see dancers progress as we present new technique, combinations and routines. We know what direction we are going; now we have to go at the same time to the same beat on the same foot. Lots of hard work lies ahead and we will do it!!
Tuesday, December 19 - Friday, January 5. Last class December 18. First class back Saturday, January 6, 2024.
