Cascade Crossfires December Workshop Extravaganza

Dear Friends,

Well, my week ended up being a bit busier than I expected. I hope you have had a great week with all the last minute holiday things to do.

Good dancing on Monday! Everyone is getting more confident dancing the calls that we know. We have three calls to learn when we return from our holiday break.

Don’t forget to take a moment for yourself during your holiday preparations! Have a cup of tea! Have a nap!

Stay warm! Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Happy dancing,

Monday, February 5, 2018, Cascade Crossfires Plus Workshops. Class is over. Now the learning begins as we practice the calls and solidify them in our muscle memory. Awesome Plus (for those who want extended applications) is 6:30-7:30 p.m. Plus Workshop (if you are not quite confident yet) is 7:30-9:00 p.m. These workshops will continue until the last Monday in July. Y’all come!

Unless a Plus dancer is sure s/he can execute all Plus calls from all positions (usual and unusual), they should register as a "camper". By and large, angels for these camps are Advanced and above dancers.

That being said, (1) I am working hard to make this affordable; I only want to cover costs, not make money; and, (2) I do not want anyone not to attend b/c s/he is strapped for money, they should just let me know and all will be held confidentially. The point is to improve our dancing!
