The last 3 days have been a whirlwind!
We started this weekend with our West Coast Swing Dance on Friday evening. Our guest instructors, Chris and Melissa Moy taught a fantastic class to the community, then stayed to dance, we even got a chance to enjoy a Spotlight of them dancing together!
Then at the party on Saturday, we not only had a wonderful time dancing together, socializing, and meeting new facees, but we also got an opportunity to see Cedric and Mallory perform one of their Professional Competition Routines! Their next competition is the end of this Month in Nashville, TN. After that event, we will all get the chance to see them compete at CBC in August!!!
Sunday we had a girl's trip to try on ballroom gowns for those who are competing at CBC! Thanks to Sandy and Ballroom Bliss for welcoming us and pampering us as we tried on many of the beautiful gowns that she sells and rents for ballroom competition!
WCS Class Cancellation
This week I know many of you will be attending Jammin' in July, and for that reason, we will not be offering our Thursday Night WCS Classes this week... next week we will resume as normal!
Byron Saunders Foundation is a Charity we work closely with each year to help provide food for families at Thanksgiving! $40 Feeds a Family, and we have multiple ways you can help!
3 ways to help feed families this Thanksgiving
1. Food Drive
