    SAVE THE DATE:  Saturday, July 25, 2015!!!!   

It's the 21st
Mid-Summer Classic Competition held right here at Rhapsody Ballroom and hosted by our Southern Star Chapter. It is for
amateur couples and is
very affordable! Details and applications are on our website ( Please be sure to help
us promote this exciting event by letting others know about it when you are out and about at other dance events. Take along some flyers to
pass out also. Just let me know if you'd like some.
  I always have extra on hand, and there are always flyers on the front table as you walk in
at Rhapsody. Also, volunteers are always needed for this event. Please contact a board member if you'd like to help. All amateur couples are
welcome to compete. This is the perfect competition for both veteran dance couples as well as rookie dance couples! 

Why not give it a try?!?!
What a great turnout we had for both our March and April monthly dances! 

In March we got to enjoy the talents of
Alexandra Barsukov's students. What a nice variety of dances and performers! We look forward to
routines every year!  Hopefully she herself will perform for us next year!
In April, we were treated to several Pro/Am and AM/AM students of
Yulia and Sergey Kopylov. They continue to be imaginative with their 
music, costumes, and choreography! These dances are just a sample of some of the performances from their Show of Shows that was just held
in March.
  It's always a pleasure to watch them dance! 
To all active Southern Star Chapter Members:  Don't forget to wear your Gold Star Pin to our dances and events. Let's show some Team
Spirit! If you are an active member and do not have your Gold Star Pin yet, please see Peg Johnston for one. 
If you are not an active member, PLEASE renew as soon as possible! 
I will be headed to our District 9 Meeting the first weekend in May in Daytona Beach. I am sure I will be bringing back lots of ideas from other
chapters around our area as well as from some USA Dance Representatives who will be attending. So, stay tuned in the next newsletter for my
notes from this yearly meeting! I'm excited to attend my first
Official District 9 Meeting as the SouthernStar/Tampa President!  :)
And always keep this in mind:  "To be able to dance is both a joy & a privilege.  But, to be able to dance among friends is truly a blessing!"
