OCT 1st
St Pete (Gulfport) night out was a lot of fun.
Sarasota Dancers
Six of White Sands' competitive USA Dance couples performed on Monday, August 25th at the Treasure Coast Chapter in St. Pete.   Their Chapter USA Dance is held on the last Monday (usually) of every month at the Gulfport Casino.   The general dancing starts at 7:00, then a half hour lesson at 7:15pm followed by dancing from 8-10pm and usually a 10-15 minute show in mid-evening.   The Sarasota Chapter had a nice turnout for the cheering section. We hope that those who went enjoyed the opportunity to visit their Chapter dance and support our competing DanceSport couples.

NATIONAL BALLROOM WEEK   is September 19 - 28 this year.  It's not too late for ideas.   How about this?   Among other things, how about a group trip on Wednesday, October 1, to the Coliseum in St. Pete for another spectacular Ballroom Dance Show put on by members of USA Dance.   Click HERE for event details and HERE for directions. (Daytime event at tea dance 12:30 - 3:30, show around 2:00.)   We need a volunteer to coordinate the car pools to save some gas and have a fun trip.
