MARCH DANCE CLASSES
*************************************************************
Swing Dance Class - Thursdays in March, 7-8:30 p.m. (includes practice time).   Class will run for 4
weeks, $50
per person.   We will be dancing through the most common of the Swing dances, done
everywhere from ballrooms to cruises and more.   This is the one you remember from the ‘50’s (aka Rock ‘n
Roll, Triple Step, East Coast Swing, etc.) and will forever be popular with every age group.   Early
registration is a must.   If you need a partner, let me know.   973-527-5664. If we get enough interested, we’ll
continue it into the next month with more exciting patterns and steps.

******************
Night Club Two Step (this is a slow dance, not country two step), Tuesdays in March, 7-8:30 p.m.
(includes practice time).   Class will run for 5 weeks, $65 per person.   This is a very popular form of “slow”
dancing because it fills in the gap between really slow dances and faster-tempos.  It’s easy, fun, extremely
useful, no more sitting out those songs that are hard to dance to because they’re in between real slow music
and faster music.   Popular everywhere from ballrooms to country-western venues.   Early registration is a
must.   Call 973-527-5664.

attend.   Bring friends and receive a discount.   973-527-5664.

*************************************************************
TIDBIT FOR THE MONTH
*************************************************************
Muscle Memory
What does that mean?   It’s like a baby learning to walk, he toddles, unsure of himself, because walking isn’t
in muscle memory yet.  Same with dancing.   You may feel really awkward when first learning to dance.   This
is normal.  Your muscles aren’t used to moving a certain way, especially to music… and combining that with
new foot patterns, and trying to remember which foot to start on, oh, my, lots to learn.   But you will get there,
it just takes time and practice and your muscle memory will take over and you’ll be dancing smoothly and
without thinking too much about it.

*************************************
In case of inclement weather
**************************************
please call studio first before venturing out.   I will try to leave a message on my answering machine if
classes are cancelled.   But… use your own judgement, if you’re not sure, stay home, stay safe.   If you miss
a class due to inclement weather you will receive a credit for that class.  

*************************************************************
