WOW!  WELCOME to all the new line AND COUPLES dancers this Fall!!  It’s been exciting to see so many names, on rosters and in person, as people are both returning to dancing AND starting to learn!  I’m delighted to see so many of you indulging yourselves and pursuing this wonderful hobby we all love.  I look forward to meeting those of you whom I haven’t met yet, and have greatly enjoyed meeting those I have.  Thank you for joining us – Rob, Betsy, Ray, Courtney, & I are so pleased to dance with you!!!

REMINDER that I personally won’t be hosting dances or classes until Monday the 27th.  Betsy will still teach in Darien on Thursday, and Carol & Patrick will be running the show at the Spotted Fox on Saturday.  I am in Colorado this weekend learning new line dances and meeting other danceaholics – like line dance legend Betty Moses!  And of course Rob and Ray needed someone to keep them company, lol.

FOUR items have come up to share:

1)  I’ll only be broadcasting Monday’s Intermediate Line Dance class thru the end of October.  Zoom doubled their subscription rate, and virtual attendance has dropped.  If you’d like to continue with virtual line dancing, please visit to select a class.  I recorded 136 classes, so that will keep you busy, as it represents HUNDREDS of intermediate line dance lessons!!

2)  The Bridge Dance of 10/3 has been CANCELLED.

3)  My format has changed for the drop-in Beginner 1 & 2 classes on Wednesdays.  I’ll be teaching 2 new lessons each time we meet, and then taking requests to review any dances you’d like to remember!  This seems to best accommodate the different groups of people each week.

4)  Ray and I have completed filming of the new 12 standard Partner Pattern dances!  They can be learned AT HOME; each volume represents SIX COMPLETE lessons, as if you were with us in person.  A few other introductory videos are included in each volume, as well as a blooper reel…yip, we made some mistakes, so you may as well get a chuckle out of them!!  PRE-ORDER them at a DISCOUNT at; they’ll be available on DVD on October 15th.

That’s all, folks!  See you Monday!!
