Moving on... Class registration for next session is up! We have a wonderful line-up for this session at Highland Park with Beginning Salsa, Latin Waltz (we'll take Salsa moves and put them into your waltz) and finally for those of you who have been waltzing for awhile, we will take your waltz moves into Foxtrot. You will discover that not only can you Foxtrot but that you have a lot a moves to boot. The prerequisite for Latin Waltz is a good foundation in beginning Waltz- this is a level 2 class. There is no pre-requisite for Beginning Salsa. Hope to see you then! http://www.danceforjoy.biz/classes.html

Finally- here is Lisa and Marty's letter-

Dear Highland Park Dancers,

You're invited to a dance practice on Thursday, February 4th, at 7:30 PM.
It will be at the Puget Ridge Cohousing Common House, 7020 18th Ave. SW, which is less than a mile from the Highland Park Improvement Club where we've been having our classes. (See map below. The common house is roughly in the middle of the site.)
We can help each other remember all the great moves we've been learning! We'll mostly be practicing waltz, but we can do a little swing, too. Let us know if you have any questions.
We'd love to see you!

Marty McLaren
