White Sands Chapter
October 2014

The last week in September was National Ballroom Dance Week. Our chapter of the USA Dance celebrated with a nice feast as an Appreciation Dinner on September 29 for all the dancers who regularly attend our chapter events. We enjoyed a six-star buffet prepared by the Quickstep Caterers (Stephen and Mika) with the help of Jan and Christine. Over 70 meals were served and then we danced for two hours. We had a great half-time show after the 2nd mixer. (All at regular price of entry.)
Country Two-Step
