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
for donating the ballroom that evening! Thank
for donating a portion of his dress sales back to
our cause! And thank you to
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
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
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
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!
