Calling all local GA Dance instructors
Some of us are discussing getting together for a quarterly meeting to exchange ideas and teaching tips as well as to discuss what dances we are currently teaching.  This used to be done on a regular basis and some of us would like to restart the program.  We are currently in the "discussion" and planning stage.

We could discuss topics like (but not limited to):
What makes a good dance teacher?
What should a teacher NOT do?
What teaching hints can you share?
How do we keep line (and couple) dancing alive?
Should we teach the "old classics" and aim to keep CW alive?
How do you pick the dances you teach?
How to deal with a poorly written dance or step sheet.
Where can we go to dance?
How do we enforce dance floor etiquette?
How to record YouTube or Vimeo videos for our dances.

If you are interested in attending these meetings or would like to suggest a topic for discussion, please contact Debra at 404-398-2150 or .
More details to come……..

To be sure you only use the terminology that is "approved by the dance instructor's union" a workshop is planned in Villa Rica.  This is the NTA – The Dancer's Personal Trainer
Fall 2018 Dance Fundamentals Workshop will be held September 14-16, 2018 at the Villa Rica Civic Center & Sports Complex  1605 Highway 61 Villa Rica, GA 30180.  Their registration flyer is attached.

We are not aware of any scheduled dance events this coming Friday night.

This Saturday is the monthly Moose Lodge line dance event in McDonough.  This monthly event is NORMALLY held on the second Saturday of each month….. 

Cost is now $7!!

 ALSO note the time change.  The event is now 7 PM to 10 PM

NOTE:  The Moose Lodge has a polished concrete floor, so wear shoes accordingly as it does not slide like a wood one does but sure is better than vinyl tile.  Dancers "Foot Tubes" are available for purchase from Tommy and Lynn Bailey at the MOOSE.  

Lynn Bailey runs a list at the front, so it is your opportunity to request old and favorite ones, (bring the music if you have it just in case). 

The dance area is SMOKE FREE.   There is a bar and you can purchase drinks at the Moose.

The Henry County Moose Lodge is located just off Georgia 155, west of I-75. For those wanting to look it up on Map Quest or Google Map or put it in your GPS, the technical address is:
91 Hunter Chase
McDonough, Georgia 30253

Take either I-675 or I-75 south of I-285 to the 5th exit below where 675 and 75 merge.  The Exit on I-75 is 216 which is Georgia Route 155.  This is the southern of the McDonough exits. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right toward Griffin, (Ga-155 south).   There will be a Quality (formerly Holiday) Inn on your right as you come off I-75.

Follow Ga-155 for about a mile and turn RIGHT into the entrance to the "Hunters' Run" subdivision on your right. You MUST turn into the subdivision entrance street to get to the driveway for the Moose Lodge. The Lodge drive does not connect directly to Ga-155.

Once inside, follow the hall around to the right to the rear of the building for their ballroom. It is a tile floor. Come on down and give it a shot...

If you are coming from the Loganville - Lawrenceville or Grayson area, get on Georgia 20 going south and follow this through Conyers, Magnet, and into McDonough.  Once in McDonough where Ga-20 goes right, (toward the square) you keep going straight so watch the signs and stay on Ga-155 south.  This will circle around and once you go under I-75, you will see the Quality Inn on your right and the directions above will apply.
