======================================================= I don’t know what to say about any of the things happening in our world right now, but I do know that dancing can make us all feel better. Treat yourself to the joy of music and movement! ====================================================== Yes, it was a total drag that we had to cancel last Friday night’s (07/01/22) workshop & dance social. I made the decision to be “better safe than sorry” as several of our regular students and studio assistants texted positive for the virus. Believe me, I don’t like having to cancel out classes, but I would certainly not want to risk others getting sick. The plan is to resume all of our classes this coming Tuesday. This is the day our Summer 2 session of classes starts. Please call now to get registered. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Just call me at 210-381-6625. — Wanda

SPECIAL 2-PART WORKSHOP – “CLASSIC COUNTRY COLLECTION” – Sat  5-6 pm   <>   07/30 & 08/06 How long ago was it that the name “TwoStep” had been the name for any-and -every country western song you danced to?   When I was growing up, you didn’t  “go dancing”  —  you went “2-Steppin” !  But then what happened?   The movie, “Urban Cowboy” came out in the year 1980 —  Boy, did that ignite country dancing!   We were now introduced to the TexasTwoStep and experienced a tremendous growth of country western music out there.   More music…   More styles…  More dances!!! It looked like it was time to expand on the old timey 2-Step.  We then started dancing the 2-Step double-timed, added a little swagger and sway, a dose of polka, and endless variations borrowed from swing dancing.    DO JOIN US  for this very special 2-part workshop as we step back in time and take a shot at all of these dances and what all we can still do with them!!!  Cajun2step  /  TexasTwoStep  /  WesternSlow  / StutterStep (triple-step-walk)    TexasSwing  /  Triple2    —   Oh what fun this will be!!! Tuition is $25 – covers both weeks * Pre-registration is required.

All of the above classes require pre-registration. Register with or without a partner. We have studio assistants to partner in the classes as needed. Partners will be rotated throughout the class — this helps develop lead/follow skills. You can register in person or you can register by phone, using a credit card. NOTE — If you choose not to rotate partners you must inform us when registering.
