Last Sunday the Martina McBride concert was postponed so Judy & I attended our Sunday night dance for fun! No wonder more people show up each week. We sure had a good time. Denise gave a very good beginner lesson in West Coast Swing to a packed house and Sam's music kept everyone on their feet. Our final count was another record, 103 dancers. It's going to be hard to top that!

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

The beginner Two-Step class on Wednesday was overflowing but still short two ladies. It's too late to accept any more beginners but there will be another class soon. In February we will be teaching level 2.

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

This Saturday - 01-21-2005 - Benefit dance for the "Tidewater Literacy Council" 8pm - 10:30pm with a beginner Rumba lesson. Please attend!

This Sunday - 01-22-2006 - Beginner Rumba at 6:30 then dance to mixed music from 7:00 - 10pm - $5.00

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

In February we will have another Jack & Jill contest!

Some preliminary numbers about the USA Dance New Year's Eve events that will blow you dance-shoes off!! 
    There were 389 breakfasts served on New Year's Day.  (lots of dancers left before breakfast, and some preferred to dance and didn't eat) 
    There were 270 plates set for the Thursday nite Dinner-dance -- and may people came in just to dance, after dinner.
    There were over 400 dance lessons and workshops taught during the 4 time-slots per day.  (at $13 or less for a 75 minute dance lesson, from a world champion, this was a fantastic deal...)
    The Sheraton Waterside Hotel filled all of its rooms up and had to turn dancers away.
    NOBODY KNOWS exactly what the body-count was for all events, but let's estimate about 2,000 dance-events attended over the 5-day New Year's Eve Gala.  This was the 15th Annual event --- MAKE YOUR PLANS, NOW, to attend the 16th Annual New Year's event next year!

Dances,

Please plan to attend our "Third Saturday" Fund Raiser dance. We hope to send a nice check to the "Tidewater Literacy Council"

----------------------------------------------

Lessons,

Wednesday night - 7-8pm Beginner Two-Step Wednesday night - 8-9pm Beginner Level 2 Foxtrot

We had extra men in both classes last week but I think we found a few ladies to join up. Even so, it's not too late to join in. We teach lots of lead & follow technique along with some cool patterns to go with the technique. Chance it and come alone of bring a partner and know for sure!

~~ Giving Back - Dancing has given Judy & I so much including each other.  Each month we will be hosting a charity dance to give something back to a local charity. All profits from the dance will be given to the charity. Judy and I will be donating our time each month. Please help us by recommending a needful local charity and coming out to support this effort each month. We intend to have this on the Third Saturday of each month unless pre-empted by events and studio rentals already on the DanceSport VA Calendar.

Judy & I thank everyone who either attended or supported through a donation our last two benefit dances. Although the dances were not as well attended as we had wished we were still able to send a nice check to the two charitable organizations.  We are hoping that the word will get around for January and we can do a little better.  The January Benefit dance is scheduled on the 3rd Saturday, January 21st.  Click HERE to download the Jan 21st Benefit Literacy Charity Dance announcement (in pdf).  If you need a pdf reader, you can download one from several locations on the internet.

Thank you so much for hosting the benefit dance for the Virginia Beach SPCA last Saturday. I had a blast with you, and really appreciate everyone's patience while teaching me all the coolest moves!

You may have already heard, but our animal medical expenses were up by over $20,000 last month alone. Benefits like yours help us raise the funds, and awareness, needed to continue to provide our lifesaving programs and services. Thank you for opening the studio for this special cause. The animals and the children thank you, too.

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

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

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

Dance tip of the week:

Tip of the week - USA Dance, Why support it?

We couldn't help but notice the dance organizations (Studios, Shoe, Jewelry, Apparel Sales) that came out in support of the New Year's Eve Tidewater Chapter Event. We also took note of those studios, vendors and local instructors who were absent. So, here are some of our reasons to support the local chapters. By support we don't mean just showing up. We mean helping out in some way and really supporting the chapters.

1. Instructors and dance professionals - Judy & I are part time instructors and thankful for every contact we get. While advertising the event we had a chance to direct dancers to our web site, have them pick up or download our flyers and in a couple of cases, contact us by telephone. Yes, we promoted the Tidewater Chapter, but also our own social dances and group classes. Maybe those absent studios and instructors already have enough business.

We saw Alan Hedgpeth, of AStepAbove Dance studio (no web site yet) get out on the dance floor with his students almost every night. Young or seasoned, beginners or experienced, they all got a chance to show their best. Alan also had a business card at almost every table on Saturday night. Do we think Alan made some contacts that night? Absolutely!! After our Two-Step demonstration we had several dancers ask about our classes and all our flyers were snapped up.

The performances we saw from the local instructors and their students were inspiring to everyone in attendance.

2. Studios - DanceSportVA (where we work, and Two Step Tidewater meets for our weekly Sunday dance) closed during the week which allowed all of their dancers and professionals the time to attend. They also had several studio and independent instructors performing. They were given a chance to distribute flyers to anyone present. Who doesn't need easy, inexpensive advertising directly to your target audience? Did DanceSportVA make some contacts? Absolutely yes!

3. Vendors - We don't know how successful the sales were but we saw many dancers looking over the product that were in display. We bought a couple of nice necklaces for Judy without going near a mall. (Thanks Jeff for the nice selection) The shoe vendors also have been at the NYE event for many years and must find this a good place to connect with dancers. How many vendors could have been involved. Many of us could have enjoyed a massage by Saturday night but none were there.

4. Non-Members - Where else can you belong to an organization that provides so much for so little? It's the least expensive club we belong to and we get the most out of our membership. Best of all, it's run by fellow dancers. With the new rules, instructors and studios can be even more involved.

Let's start planning for 2006!

All the local chapters need dedicated people to get involved. The USA Dance Tidewater Chapter is the largest and needs the most in the way of commitment. If you are willing to give lots of your time to your passion please contact them.  There are also the USA Dance Peninsula Chapter, and the USA Dance Williamsburg Chapter in the local area.  If you are ever in Richmond, Washington DC or Anycity USA, look for the local chapter(s) of USA Dance (They may still be listed as USABDA - United States Amateur Dancers Assn), and you will find lots of dancers of like mind - and plenty to do.

All of the chapters need the kind of support only a few of the studios provided the last few weeks. Support does not only mean showing up to teach at a couple of chapter dances then failing to follow through during the rest of the year.  It means making a commitment to promote social dancing every day of the year; announcing local amateur dance events; and NOT competing with the chapter's monthly dance events.

The days when the private studio students were isolated are over. Sooner or later they will hear about the local amateur chapter dances, and when they attend, will the local professionals and studios be there? Will you plan to perform with your students during the next New Year's event?

Monroe in Hampton Va (Phoebus VA)).  Some fantastic deal!  You pay for the dancing, and they give you the brunch and champagne for free - OR - you can pay for the Champagne-Brunch, and dance for free... 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. Roberto sez, "I hope you will continue to support my return to Ft. Monroe on Sundays. All you need to get on the base is your drivers license and vehicle registration. No club membership is required. If you need a reservation feel free to e mail me or call the club."
