|Hello. I am assuming that if you are reading this page you are either in our class or intending to join a class shortly. I'll try to answer
questions that I anticipate you might ask.
What if I'm Gone a Lot - Especially While Classes are On?People have lives that keep them busy. During a lesson period it is
important to attend as many sessions as possible. But depending on the individual, you may be able to miss one or two. The very best
resource is the instructor/caller and you should make every effort to attend and get the most out of the classes themselves, but if you
miss, you also have the "Angels" who have been helping out.
What if I have Two Left Feet? No Rhythm? No problem! It's more like walking in rhythm and forming patterns with the other dancers.
Throw in some swinging and twirling, and some optional flourishes, and you will have a ball. Many people enjoy square dancing more
than any other type of dance because it doesn't require any special footwork! If you can walk, you can square dance. All the movements
are done with your hands and arms.
|This page will lead you to other pages that may help you as you progress with the class. Don't let any of the pages
overwhelm you with too much information. All of our classes have a co-ordinator or helpers who are generally the Vice Presidents of
the club. For the 2016 class you will be seeing a lot of Ann and Don Pacini, our Vice Presidents. If you need help, talk to them or the
caller, Tom Pustinger.
|You will also be seeing a lot of 'ANGELS' at the dances on class nights. They will be wearing Spinner badges; many of them are long
time dancers who can help you with questions during the breaks. Ask and you shall receive. REMEMBER THIS: Every dancer was
at one time in the same situation that you are in. We all had to go through lessons to become members of a club. And we all
worried and wondered if we would ever learn it all. We made it......so can you. All it takes is practice.
|As the year progresses, there will be other links added to this page but for now, you will see one that will take you to a page that
shows the moves Tom has already taught. I will try to update as I learn what he has done the past week. Use the alphabetical listing
to find the call you need more help with and I do hope you don't try to read all the definitions; that will only overwhelm you and defeat
the purpose of these pages. Good luck. Hope to see you on the dance floor. Betty Card
