                                   President’s Message                         

                             5,6,7,8...................DANCE!  

 

That's just what so many of you did at both our January and February monthly dances. Both dances were well
attended by our consistent regulars and some new visitors. We even had several out of state couples join our dances
for the first time. They had such positive things to say about our music, food, decorations, and friendly atmosphere 
starting at the welcoming table as they entered the front door as well as throughout the evening! That's the kind
of feedback we all love to hear! Keep up the "grins" and "spins" on the dance floor. 

We now have two spectacular banners that advertise our SouthernStar Chapter-our original Black and Gold USABDA
banner, and our
new Red, White, and Blue USA Dance Chapter banner. Check them out! 

In January, we enjoyed the skills of Hans deWilde and two of his students from Tango Toes studio. In February,
we enjoyed the talents of
Nerijus Jasaitis and one of his students from Magic Dance Ballroom. What creative shows both
studios danced for us! They are all welcome here anytime! 

Since we've had such good attendance at our monthly chapter dances, the parking lot can fill up quickly! Remember,
you can park next door in the Mason's lot for overflow space if needed. Our dances are worth the walk!

We've now had two months to implement our new USA Dance fees. Remember, these fees help keep our Youth Dance
Program at Strawberry Crest High School going strong (among other things).  Instructor,
Daria Kopylov, and her student
dancers are having a ball learning new and creative dance routines. We look forward to having them perform at one
of our monthly dances very soon! 

If you have not renewed or joined our chapter yet..........what are you waiting for?!?! See Peg Johnston, our
membership coordinator, for all the details.  JOIN US!!

We will be having our first SouthernStar Chapter Board meeting of 2016 with our new Board at the end of February. 
More details and exciting information from this meeting will be coming soon to a SouthernStar Newsletter near you!

And finally, let me leave you, as always, with this thought:                                                                  
"To be able to dance is both a joy and a privilege.  But, to be able to dance among friends is truly a blessing!"
