This date should be on your calendar:

Saturday, July 25th, 2015!

This is the day of our 21st Mid-Summer Classsic all Amateur Competition held right here at Rhapsody Ballroom
and hosted by our Southern Star Chapter!Check out the website for more details ( Be
sure to let others know about this wonderful competition when you are out and about visiting other dance places. This
is the most affordable competition around:  It's only $85 per person ($170 per couple) to enter and dance an
unlimited number of dances. 
And, it's only $10 for spectators to watch, enjoy, and cheer us on all day. You can't beat
those prices!
  See you there!
In May we had a very special dance. It was a fundraiser to help keep our Youth Program afloat - The
Crest High School Dancers
- instructed by the talented and beautiful Daria Kopylov. They did two energetic numbers
that had us all tapping our toes and clapping our hands! They even stayed and joined in with us during our Merengue
Mixer and Hustle Line Dance. Special “Thank You” to
Richard Collette for donating the ballroom that evening! Thank
you to
Ron Algood for donating a portion of his dress sales back to our cause! And thank you to Hyeyong Temlin for
giving back her winning portion of the 50/50 Raffle, adding to our grand total for the evening! It was a great success,
but we may need to hold another fundraiser later in the year to keep this worthwhile Youth Program up and going. 
In June we were visited by none other than James Bond, 007 himself - well, actually it was
Jason......Jason Bundy
and his students who thoroughly entertained us with their James Bond themed dances. It's always a treat to see
them perform! We also had
Tatijana from Noka Posh bring in a Trunk Show of her beautiful and unique designs.
She'll be back in the late Fall with some more items for sale . We're all looking forward to that for sure!
Please be sure to renew your SouthernStar Membership and wear your Gold Star pin to each dance. Who doesn't
love dancing among the "STARS!?" If you know someone who is not a member of our chapter yet, be sure to encourage
them to join!  See
Peg Johnston
for any questions. 
See you at the competition, here at Rhapsody Ballroom on Saturday, July 25th. Whether you are
dancing or cheering on the competitors, we can't wait to have you as part of our 21st USADance Mid-Summer Classic!
And 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!"
