Happy New Year Dancers!
Let's all make some dance New Years
SouthernStar USA Dance Memberships. Let others know what a great chapter
we are, and why they should join. In fact,
have you renewed your own
-Visit other local
USA Dances. If we go to the theirs, they are more likely to come to
ours. Why not carpool and go as SouthernStar
you happen to be traveling, remember to look up the local USA Dance
chapter in the place you are visiting. I was in
Phoenix, AZ over the
holiday's and went to several USA Dance events and got a chance to meet
several Phoenix Board Members - what
great contacts to have!
-Continue to challenge yourself with your own dancing. Group lessons
and/or private lessons are a great way to improve, and there is a
plethora of talented Instructors out there! All lessons are well-worth
the price - try it out! Going to many local social dances is also a
to practice what you've learned and meet the nicest
-But most of all, have fun with your dancing - after all, that's what
it's all about, right?!
In November, we enjoyed the superb dancing by
Yulia and Sergey Kopylov
and some of their students. What a variety of
dances we saw;
Quick Step, Tango, Cha-Cha, Samba, & Jive. They
always make it look so easy, and we all know it's not! I heard that
Sergey even got arrested
at the end of his routine - it must have
been quite a dance!
In December, (as is our tradition), we
thoroughly enjoyed the creative talents of Richard & Laurie Collette and
their two routines. They always
give such moving performances, but
the Nutcracker themed one is one of my favorites! Nikki
and Jerry Dvorak
unveiled a new routine, and all
I can say
is it was truly "poetry" on the dance floor! Jerry sure can "ROCK"
It's not too early to start thinking about
our Mid-Summer Classic All Amateur Competition on July 25th. So, find
yourself an amateur partner, start
practicing and get ready to have
some fun and see some great dancing! When you are out and about at other
dance events, please be sure to let
others know about our
competition - let's keep it going! If you need more information , check
out the details
on our web-site or contact the
Michael and Beth Nolan.
Let's all look forward to a happy and healthy
2015 with lots of dance experiences!
Always keep this in mind: "To be able
to dance is both a joy and a privilege. But, to be able to dance
among friends is truly a blessing!"
