The warmth that we experienced this weekend in Winnipeg just inspired me to send out this early HLSB "spring" newsletter!
For once, I don't have many classes to advertise for the spring/summer. In theory, I will be busy due to travel for dance and chemistry. I am set to compete at Pride Cup in Orlando in June however I will be playing things by ear because many dance comps around the world have been cancelled due to the virus.
At U of M we are already planning for fall term dance classes. I'd like to hear from you - are there certain classes you'd like me to offer? Complete this survey!
The next newsletter will come out in August.
Stay healthy and all the best,
