A little bit of chocolate never hurt anyone! Chocolate was created at the request of several dancers. It's a workshop designed not only to give you the "in's and "outs" of square dancing, but also gives you a chance to dance something that isn't "vanilla." The workshops are open to all who want to experience a different side of square dancing!

Opening time

Last week's workshop seemed more and more like a dance. You all must be studying and reviewing more and more. Almost everybody is hesitating less and responding faster, even when Aaron mixes things up. Those of you who are staying after club dances for the advanced tip are hearing other callers and it's good for you. Keep up the practice and the advanced calls will NOT get "RUSTY". Hope to see you on Thursday at 7:15!

Due to the decrease in participation for our Chocolate session (7:00 - 8:30), we are placing "Chocolate Plus Workshop" on hiatus for now and will re-evaluate it in the fall. We will send out a survey, at that time, and depending on the results of that survey, see if we can resume the plus workshop. Therefore, our Advanced workshop / dance will have a change in time to 7:15 til 9:15, and will still meet Every Thursday. Our new advanced dancers have been getting better by the week and will continue to do so with more floor time. Aaron and BV

Aaron will be back and ready to deliver some chocolate calling and fun dancing on Thursday. 7:00 pm Chocolate Plus, + chocolate. 8:30 pm Advanced Review and probably finish teaching the last 3 calls on the A2 list + chocolate. If you have been away for while, now is the time to jump back in. If you have never been to our chocolate workshop, now is the time to jump in.

Remember, no matter how much we think we know, we can always learn something new at the Chocolate workshop.

Even though threatening weather was predicted, we had one square for Chocolate and 2 squares for Advance. It was a fun night and it only rained a little.

It is such a pleasure to see the improvement in your dancing skills each week, as we move along our Chocolate paved road to better dancing. Our goal is to improve your listening skills, while helping with any calls that give you a hesitation, either from the "normal, vanilla" positions, or now the "chocolate" positions. The new advanced lessons are whizzing along, because of our stellar, 1 year new advanced group, who went through the lessons last year. They are learning at least as much, the second time through the calls.

What fun we had Thursday night dancing to Aaron. One of our new plus dancers came to visit and danced DBD with us. She did well. We had two squares dancing both sessions (DBD and A2 lessons).

Last day of Winter! Come out and warm up with some chocolate dancing and some chocolate candy. If you danced to Tony Oxendine and noticed that the dance was "more FUN" because you could "handle" his calling easier this time, that is a big part of what we want to accomplish with this workshop.

The weather has IMPROVED immensely. We had a FUN dance with Tony Oxendine on Monday. Our chocolate workshop has helped you gain abilities to have, even MORE FUN at these kinds of dances. You might not realize it, but I believe that it's true. There are no square dances scheduled for Friday, so come out Thursday and "enjoy the Chocolate" from 7-8:30 PM and Advance lessons from 8:30-10:00 PM.

We hope to have a good attendance this Thursday. Some of you will be traveling to Noblesville, IN for the weekend to dance to Tony Oxendine, Jerry Story, and Tom Miller. Our workshop is a great way to prepare for the dancing that you will experience on that weekend, or any weekend, for that matter. If you are NOT going, just come and have some chocolate and dance with us.
