Hello Dancers! A Reminder to save the Date for our NTLDC Christmas workshop, Dec.14th!!
We have selected the dances to teach and walk-thru. The Dances program will include Beginner, Improver, and Intermediate dances. The Beginner dances will be covered during the  the first part of the afternoon , after that Improver, and then, Intermediate. This will give dancers  the opportunity to leave early if they are not interested in learning the Intermediate or improver dances.  Dances are listed below. Water will be provided.  We invite dancers to bring snacks to share.
We will also have a table set up for  slightly used dance shoes and shirts. These items are being  donated by  Dancers that can no longer use them. This is a free table, if you find something that fits, you are free to take it home with you.

Plano Open Dance  December 20, 2019, 5:30 pm

Details to follow.


YES we will have a 4th Friday Line Dance event at Garland Senior Center on Friday, Dec. 27 from 5:30 to 7:45 pm.  BUT, it will be a LINE DANCE PARTY not a workshop.  Kind of an “End of the Year” party or Pre-New Years party.  We are in process of chosing dances, both old and new.  Probably will have about 20 dances in the play list, mostly Beginner with a couple IMP and INT included.  The plan is for a one wall walk through and then play the music.  And there is NO Charge.
NOTE:  This is a “Save The Date” email.  We will send out a list of dances later this month.  And we will have a dance list hand out at the event.
