Group Dance lessons for this month will be SAMBA and the instructor will be Greg Luff.
  He and Suzanne are expecting another Blessed Event in late September or early October.  Congratulations to the whole family.
Hustle lost the battle to
SAMBA this month. Close call.
The Ritz night out was a lot of fun.
We had a great time at the Ritz last Tuesday, July 29.   After more than two hours of General Dancing, the judges set up tables for the comp.   First out of the chute were our own Joe and Beth with a real swinging solo, followed by a number of other excellent Pro-Am and amateur solo routines.

COMPETITION PRACTICE:   GULFPORT CASINO   GET DIRECTIONS

The White Sands Chapter's six competitive couples will be performing on Monday, August 25th at the Treasure Coast Chapter in Pinellas.   Their monthly Chapter dance is held at the Gulfport Casino and features a half hour lesson at 7:15pm followed by dancing from 8-10pm.  Dance hosts are available.  We hope that you will take this opportunity to visit their Chapter dance and support our couples.

(Note:  There will still be a dance also at Sara Dance that night, although not hosted by the chapter.   If not going to Gulfport, support Greg and Stephen by visiting their party in Sarasota.)
