The executive is offering to hold a workshop for first year dancers on Tuesday, March 20th from 7-9:30pm. Location to be advised. We recognize the fact that some people would benefit from extra help and we really do not want to you to give up. Square dancing is fun especially when you get more confident in executing your moves!
The intent of this workshop is to help the newer dancers. (But we welcome “angels” to come and help.) We realize that some of our January student dancers have been ill. Lessons are only a small part of the learning process. It is the practice on the floor which solidifies the moves into your brain and body. When you have danced a few years they talk about “muscle memory”. It becomes almost a reflex action when you hear the call. So you need to attend regularly to become a good dancer.
This workshop will not take place unless we have at least two squares of first year dancers. I would hope that all the January class will attend. Even with two squares the club is subsidizing the evening so we want to know for sure that you will attend. Please reply to Jean Lander to let us know one way or the other if you plan on attending. If we have not heard from you in a couple of days the phone committee will be calling you so to save this extra work, please respond.
Spring Spree is coming up and we would like you all to have the opportunity to attend this fabulous event (right here in Peterborough). This is why the club is willing to put some money and the necessary work and time into this workshop.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Spring Spree, Peterborough Mayor Daryl Bennett will be making a proclamation to declare the week beginning April 21st as “SQUARE DANCE WEEK IN PETERBOROUGH”!
