monthly dances for January and February got off to a successful start of
the new year.
Both dances were hampered somewhat by the rain, but
the attendance was still good. Month
after month the dance
entertainment we have at the Rhapsody Ballroom continues to be superb.
In January we had the
Chris-Kat Performance Team
which involved eight couples who performed
the Tango, Swing, Cha
Cha, Waltz and Foxtrot. In February we had
who performed along with some of her students. Also at the February
dance students from the
Strawberry Crest High School
entertained the crowd with some delightful
dance numbers as a
SouthernStar Chapter is currently providing funding for an instructor to
Crest High School students to promote ballroom
dancing for young people.
discussing a change with some fellow board members, it was decided that
monthly dances would begin at 7:45 PM and end at 10:15 PM
It was felt that the 7:45 PM
time frame will better facilitate the
end of the group class at 7:30, eliminate some of the confusion,
possibly free-up some parking spaces. Also it was agreed that it would
be helpful to end the
dance at 10:15 instead of 10:30, which will
allow our food committee more time for clean-up, etc.
Ms. Lorraine Collett
Collett’s mother) passed away on February 14th.
Ms. Collett was a resident at the Palm Terrace Assisted Living
Facility, where members of our
Southern Star outreach group had
performed on many occasions at her request. Ms. Collett was
delightful person, and our outreach group’s biggest cheerleader. She
will be missed.
Many thanks to those faithful members who contribute
their time and talent every month to make
the dances a success.
Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions on how
make our chapter even better than it already is.
