12-30-22 Not a Line Dance but it's going to be FUN!!!
It’s going to be a terrific night of singing, dancing, and reminiscing to the great
songs from way back when. There will be drawings, trivia and dance contests
and more. Come twist with Chubby Checker or calypso to hits by Neil Sedaka
and Paul Anka. You can slow dance to Johnny Mathis or shake it up to a
medley of top hits by Elvis. Do you remember The Stroll or Hand Jive? And
who can forget the Doo-Wop, Soul and British Invasion hits? We’ll listen to
top Songs of the Year as well as some One Hit Wonders and other favorites.
Snap a selfie of your gang with Elvis or standing beside a jukebox. You might
even have a chance to try your hand (or hips) with a Hula Hoop again. So dig
out those poodle skirts or roll up a pack of cigarettes in the sleeve of a white
tee or get your groove on in a tie dyed shirt and bell bottoms. Plan a night out
while creating some great new memories. Don’t wait too long or you’ll miss all
the fun. Tickets on sale now.
12-1-2022 December Holiday Schedule
Next week, Dec 7th, will be the last week for the late starts and no Beyond class. We will be reviewing dances for the Big Barn Dance on the 15th. I will need to know who is planning on coming to the Christmas party.
The following week, Dec 14th, will be the Christmas Party, from 1-4pm. Cost is $7 per person which will include small sandwiches, chips, fruit, veggies and cookies. We will eat a little, dance a little, chat a little and continue reviewing the Christmas dances. Feel free to bring a significant other.

Merry Merry and Happy Happy to you and yours. Hoping its great and safe.

8-10-2022 Dance Date for December changed again
We were able to change our December Big Red Barn Dance from Saturday, December 10th to Thursday, December 15th.
7-7-2022 Dance Date Changes and Additions
In an effort to possibly allow for fewer conflicts with family/social gatherings and other special events, we are moving our Big Barn Dances to Thursday nights where possible. It will be better for the Barn and should also lessen the chance of being bumped. For the rest of 2022, August 6th and December 10th will remain on Saturdays, still starting at 5. September 22nd and October 27th are the new dates on Thursdays with start times of 6 to allow time for those that either work or travel a great distance. January 12th has also been booked on a Thursday and will post as soon as we have scheduled the rest of 2023. Dates and times are also on Events Tab.
7-7-2022 Special Dance Event
Another important date is January 26th at the Barn. We are working on a Golden Oldies Dance event, playing the top fast, slow and in between hits, by the original artists from two decades (50’s and 60’s). This is NOT a line dance event, but that’s not to say there will be no line dancing. The greatest music is the top priority. It’s just an old fashion dance where you can “have a blast” dancing, singing or just sitting back, relaxing and “remembering when”. More info to follow, but in the meantime, you can brush up on your Bunny Hop, Stroll, Twist, Mashed Potato, etc!
7-7-2022 Annual Class Christmas Party
Mark your calendars for our Christmas event on December 14th. It will be held during our regular scheduled class time, 2-5pm. There will be no classes the rest of the month. More details to follow.
