Hello Gainesville Ocala Area Dancers and Friends,

This Saturday night West Coast Swing dancing is upstairs at Imperial Dance Studio. Gary is the DJ and will also play Argentine
Tango, if requested. Heard they had a good turnout last month. This is a good opportunity for you to dance WCS in a nice atmosphere.
Downstairs is ballroom dancing.

Next Wednesday March 17 Josh is holding a St. Paddie's Day West Coast Swing dance party. Go over there.

Keep Richard's Tuesday mostly swing classes at the Boltin Center on your schedule. They have been doing Lindy Hop and West Coast
Swing in addition to East Coast Swing.

This Friday night is Tango Encanto.

There is a new weekly English Country Dance (Jane Austen style) on Thursdays.

March 28 is a full day of dancing. Save the date.

The UF clubs might be on break. Check before going. You need to confirm before going to Israeli each week.

"Salud" from "Merry Andrew" starring Danny Kaye. Caution, only watch if you can afford to smile for the rest of the day. At 3:17 are
incredible dancers.

Happy Dancing,

  1. How did you learn all of these awesome moves? Your classes sound like a lot of fun. Are you doing more West Coast Swing lessons? I think that would be way fun to learn. I cant wait to use some new moves at the club!
