In Step Dance Associates will host a spring workshop, dinner and dance on Saturday, April 9, at the PLPOA Clubhouse, 230 Port Ave.
Deb Aspen, (of In Step), will host the “Swing Into Spring” West Coast Swing Workshops, and is bringing Arthur Murray’s accredited dance instructors Bob and Cindy Long from Albuquerque to teach both beginning and intermediate West Coast Swing. The Longs have been instrumental in developing new syllabus for Arthur Murray, and will share some exciting new tidbits of technique with us.
Both beginning and intermediate/advanced classes will be held at the same time, as we can divide the clubhouse into two separate rooms. Registration begins at 2:45 p.m. with the workshop starting promptly at 3. The cost is $25 per person, with proceeds going to the visiting instructors, and to pay for putting on the non-profit event.
A refreshment break (provided by In Step) will take place around 4:15, followed by more WCS until 6. Everyone will then have a chance to change clothes if desired, or do any preparations for dinner that are necessary. Anyone 16 years of age or older may attend the workshop, but the dinner and dance is adult only.
BYOB cocktails will start at 6:30 with a potluck dinner at 7. There will be lots of general dancing to a wide variety of CD music throughout the evening’s festivities, which will include some exciting exhibition dances. We would love to include other exhibition dances to the list, so we encourage any dance couple who has a routine, or would like to work on one, to sign up. Just call and I will be glad to help in any way I can to get you ready. Don’t be shy ... anyone, at any level can be a part of the fun!
If you can’t make it to the workshop during the day, we heartily encourage you to come to the dinner and dance. Bring your own adult beverage, and one of the following: main dish, side dish, salad or dessert. Table settings, napkins, glasses, cups, silverware, water, coffee, teas, and hot chocolate will be provided. There is a full kitchen available, for our convenience. Plan to kick up your heels and have a ball.
Your choice of attire is optional. Comfortable, more casual clothing is best for the workshop; but there are restrooms to change in if you wish to bring something dressier for the evening. Please wear shoes that have smooth or suede leather soles, something that does not leave black marks or mud.
Stay tuned in the weeks to come for more information on the Longs and any updates.
