Spring-Summer 2018 Newsletter

Happy spring everyone! 

What a term it has been!  Of my years teaching ballroom classes at U of M, I have never seen so much interest in the classes.  The beginner standard ballroom class was so big that we had to divide it into two classes and the beginner Latin class was also maxed out in enrollment!  Hopefully that's a good omen of reviving interest in the art!

I have some exciting news to share!  I have registered to compete at the Gay Games in Paris!  Unfortunately my partner is in Vancouver so I'll be making some trips out to Vancouver for training over the next few months before heading to Paris in July.  Needless to say, my teaching schedule for the spring and summer will be drastically reduced.  Currently there are over 7600 people registered for Gay Games in 36 events and there are a couple of hundred registered dancesport competitors!  As well, prior to the Gay Games event, I will be in San Francisco for the North American Same-Sex Dance Championships at the end of April just to get a feel for what an official same-sex ballroom dance competition is like.

I'll be posting pictures and hopefully videos on the HLSB facebook page for all of the events I'm off to this summer so feel free to check them out there!

In terms of classes over spring and summer, I will have some group classes at U of M on Wednesday nights and I'm offering two specialty workshops in April and May.  I will not be holding any classes in July and August.  The next newsletter should be sent out after I return from Paris, at the end of August. 

All the best and Happy Easter!
