Presidents Message November 2011

It has been a year since our chapter began offering low cost beginning dance lessons to our members and non-members. In that time, we have served 468 students (many of these students took more than one series of lessons) during Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Cha Cha, East Coast Swing, Merengue and Samba lessons. Thank you to all who have helped to make this program a success: our Board, our volunteers, and our beginning lesson students. It is through your efforts that our chapter-sponsored beginning lessons were featured in the September-October issue of American Dancer. Hooray, Greater Daytona Chapter!

Once again, our members and guests outdid themselves during our Costume Contest. Winners were:
First place, Caleb Young as the Mad Hatter
Second place, John Mitcheltree as the Neon Cowboy
Third place, Paul Spano as the Tin Man
Honorable Mention goes to ALL WHO PARTICIPATED, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF YOU WHO MADE YOUR COSTUMES!

The holidays are upon us. Do you need gift ideas? How about a membership to our chapter of USA Dance with all the perks (including free lessons) that come with new membership? Cost is only $25 per year (a full 12 months) and the return on your investment is $226 (including $100 in free dance lessons! Or, how about passes to our dances? Cost is only $6 per pass. Or, how about our chapter-sponsored beginning lessons, 4 for $20? See Jean Krupa or Marta to make your purchase.

Among the many things that I am grateful for this holiday season is the gift of dance. Dance brings with it: friends, beautiful music, beautiful/fun movement, and a reprieve from the everyday stresses of life. I wish for you, this Thanksgiving, the gift of dance.


Keep on dancing!
