Hello Georgia Line Dance Instructors - 

I heard from eight dance instructors  this month and these are the new teaches for the month of  March!    Thanks to Cynthia, Jane, Sandy, Kerri, Theresa, Donna, and Deb for participating.   I hope more of you will join us in the future.  If you know of a line dance instructor in GA that would like to participate, please forward this to them.   I need your information for April new teaches by the 18th of May (new teaches are dances taught for the first time to a class - so it can be an old dance taught for the first time to a class).

Thanks and keep dancing!

We're working on favorites like Electric Slide and Hippy Dippy Mambo and started learning Don't Rush Baby this past week. Coming up look for Just Because and original choreography Boogie Down.

No dance experience necessary just a desire to have some fun.

SUBJECT:  STACY HAS UPDATED THE "DANCE WHERE" LINK ON THE SITE:

PLEASE checks the classes and clubs that are listed in the area where you live and let Stacy know by filling out the little form whether there should be changes, deletions, or corrections.  Please really use this link when they travel or move and she can only keep it correct and current with everyone's help.  Just click on the link, go to your city/state/country and see if the listings are correct or if you are in a class that isn't listed.  Perhaps your instructor doesn't get the newsletter (and you need to tell them to get it by sending me an email to tkandr@aol.comand I'll add them.  LOL) or times and days have changed.  It will only take a second to check and Stacy and I would REALLY appreciate it.  Be sure and do it through the form, though, because that goes directly to her.  Thanks a bunch.
