We have moved all activities to the Dancesport VA dance studio, which is much larger, and has an air conditioner which handles a larger crowd, more comfortably. (Note:  We are NOT DanceSport VA, we simply have an agreement with them to hold our dances there.)

~~~~ About "DanceSport VA" - The DanceSport VA studio is located on Arrowhead Drive between Princess Anne and Newtown Rd. From the Expressway take an exit onto Newtown Road South, turn left on Princess Anne then Right onto Arrowhead just past Big Al's muffler. The parking lot is not large but there are plenty of nearby business with parking room at night and on Sundays.  One, very convenient parking area is in front of the small "strip mall" which fronts on Princess Anne, only a hundred feet or so from the studio, on Arrowhead.

The studio has a large (3000 sq ft) dance floor as well as a separate smaller (2000 sq ft) dance floor. It is a very clean, well maintained studio. They also have dance shoes and apparel for sale. They have a very good Air Conditioning system. The DanceSport staff has been very supportive of us and will make everyone feel welcome. We have been assured that we can have Sunday night without interruption throughout the year.  Note:  Two Step Tidewater Virginia is NOT affiliated with DanceSport VA, or with ANY dance studio.  We simply rent dance floor space for our dances.  We hope everyone who has enjoyed the social dance on Sunday will continue to attend. We will do everything we can to make this transition as smooth as possible.

You can check out the studio and find a photo.  Click on the link "DanceSport VA" or go to http://www.twosteptidewater.com/quick_links_page.htm

************************************
Social Dance with group lesson every Sunday at "DanceSport VA"  http://www.dancesportva.com/  Come at 6pm to warm up - Stay and practice while we clean up. Dance & lesson gives you over 4 hours for $5.00. Refreshments are included.
**************
Judy and I are offering Private and Group lessons in most dances. Please contact us if interested.

We would also like to get something started in the Churchland, Western Branch area of Tidewater. If you know of an organization, club or church that may be interested in working with us please contact us.


Below is a sample of a weekly dance tip. More are posted at this link Dance Tips Menu

**********************************************

Dance tip of the week:

10 more quick tips to keep in mind.

1. Don't watch your feet, they already know what to do and if they don't, watching them won't help.
1a. Don't watch your partner's feet - by the time the message gets from your eyes to your brain to your feet, it'll be too late anyway.
1c. (Just keep a good dance frame and move with your partner's shoulders and the rest will take care of itself...)
2. Don't use your partner to move you. That's what those feet and legs are for.
3. Learn the principles of "one beat lead" Ask us Sunday if you don't know.
4. Nail the basics then work on the moves.
5. Stay clean and neat. No one like to dance with someone with poor hygiene.
6. Act like you enjoy dancing and be polite.
7. Men, don't dance over your head just to try and impress a lady. It don't work. They are too smart for that and your bad (lead, posture, dance frame, etc) will give you away.
8. Ladies, don't apologize for missing a lead or not knowing a pattern. It's nothing to be sorry about.
9. Practice the small stuff more often.
10. Come out dancing with Walter & Judy EVERY Sunday night at our Two Step Tidewater Virginia dances!!!!

Come early, the buffet sometimes gets a little stale late in the day.  You can dance off the meal, and there will still be plenty of time to get from the buffet to our regular Sunday Two Step Tidewater Dance.  So, if you can get on the bases, treat your lady once-in-a-while.  I'm sure most of you are honorary members of the Langley AFB Officers' Club and/or have a base pass. If you have no base pass, or the old pass expired, you will have to go to the Lasalle Ave. Gate pass office and have them call the Officer's Club 766 1361 and ask for Larry Bonner or Becky (head cashier) to be sponsored on the base. This has to be done between the hours of 10 A.M. and 2:30 P.M.  Roberto will be there some Sundays for brunch and some Wednesday nights.

~~Sunday Sept 19th - DanceSport VA Beginner II Foxtrot 5pm with Amy

~~Sunday Sept 19th - Roberto plays at Langley AFB Officers Club Sunday Brunch Dance. 10:30-1:30 p.m. Ph. 788-5656 Fort Monroe, Hampton VA (Old Town Phoebus - (Click for a map to Ft. Monroe in Hampton Va (Phoebus VA)).  After entering the base, continue to the dead end (at the hotel), then turn left.  The Officer's Club (actually it used to be the Officer's Club - it's now just the Ft. Monroe Club.)
