PARACHUTING INTO EXISTING CLASSES IN JANUARY

Previous members of the Club who were unable to register for a class in the fall are invited to register in an existing class. Anyone joining must have danced at least one full year at the level they wish to register in. Anyone registering for an existing class will not be given any extra instruction to catch up with the curriculum already taught in term 1.

Classes are availble at all three levels. Please check our website under classes to find out which classes will be available and to download your registration form. Registration for an existing class is available by mail in registration only, postmarked by December 17th, 2012.

Please let family and friends know about the above two opportunities.

MISTLETOES DANCE TICKET PICK-UP and RESERVATIONS

Mistletoes tickets ordered in class and through PayPal are available for pick-up this week until November 22nd.

We would like to start the dance on time, please arrive early to allow for time to find a parking space.

DANCE ONLY SEATING IS IN THE NON-RESERVED DANCE ONLY SECTION.

Please honor your original seating request on the night of Mistletoes. Changing your mind and sitting somewhere else on the evening of the dance, other than your original choice, means you are taking someone else’s spot. Anyone found seated in a section other than where they originally requested will be asked to move. There will be two Executive members circulating to assist people with finding their seats.
