"Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music"----

Pat Conroy

Hello Dancers,

So can you hear the music? I must be insane, I think those who don't dance are the crazy ones. Let's face it, when you dance not only do you get exercise, but you can look good doing it and get to hang out with really nice people. Why would you not dance?

This is an election year for our Chapter and we have four of our board members that will not be running for re-election. We need to have a minimum of seven members on the board. For our dances to continue and our Chapter to go forth, we need you on the board. Please consider running. The nomination process will begin in August with the election being held in November.

The Autumn Serenade Ball is fast approaching; the Pros are lined up, the DJ is hired, the menu is selected and the TICKETS are now available. Ticket and menu selection can be found at www.usadance2043.org This year's net proceeds will be donated to the Johnny Burke Children's Foundation. So come and join us for enjoyable evening of dancing, dining, entertainment and support a local charity. What could be better!

If you would like to see a preview of the pro dancers, Richard Tonizzo and Claire Hansen, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efrFRznTk8o. If you have not seen a live pro performance, you will be amazed and delighted at the sheer power and grace.

I would like to thank Joann Podleski for the Country Two Step lesson. At the August dance there will not be a lesson, but are having a potluck instead. So bring a dish to pass and have an enjoyable night of fellowship and dancing. Table service and beverages will be provided.

Keep dancing,
