Where does the time go we all say! It flies by! That’s where it goes. This week will the last week of the session for both our Wednesday and Thursday clubs. Our Wednesday group will be finishing off the review on Right Here Waiting For You-RB5 with Pat and John and our Thursday group will be looking at the Whip Family in West Coast Swing with Donna and John as an end of season review. Our Monday club actually has 2 more sessions, as our facility was closed Easter Monday extending us to May 15. We will be covering a dance called I Can Love You Like That-BL5 to finish things off for our 4-6 club.
Our dancing of course is not over though as we have one more dance on Wednesday, May 17 designed as a get together for all of our clubs! This year, in keeping with multiple celebrations nation wide, we will be having a Canada 150 Dance! It’s not every year we get to celebrate such a milestone for our fine country!! Pat has put together a fantastic program made up primarily of Canadian choreographers, artists or others in the Canadian music industry! We have many talented Canadians to fit the bill including a few within our very club with their own choreographies! Well done! To keep with the Canadian element of our dance, I will be starting each set with a few “Did you know??” facts about this great country of ours. For the first time ever, we will also be awarding door prizes (no purchase required) that also carry a Canadian theme! You can pick up your door prize ticket as you sign in. Now in order to become Canada’s newest millionaire, you will need to purchase “Share The Wealth” tickets which Gavin and Pat will be more than happy to help you with at the door.
As this is a year ending dance, we will be conducting a short Annual General Meeting about midway. We held meetings a few weeks ago at both our Wednesday and Thursday clubs to keep this meeting short and to the point so we can resume dancing. We will be electing our next year’s slate of officers and please remember we have openings and would be happy to have your help in whatever capacity you are able. Please consider helping us out.
What would a Canada 150 dance be without a lot of patriotic Canadian red and white about?? Pat and Jill Ivay do a tremendous job for us with decorations and along with all of their ingenuity, the dancers provide a lot of atmosphere when they come dressed the part! If you would like to dress in some red and white, please do so. Let’s be a walking billboard for Canada 150! You can expect our entourage of camera paparazzi will be about as well so “strike the pose!”
There is nothing like attending a fun dance with lots of great music and great friends to socialize with. Am I missing something?? Ohhh….FOOD! How could I forget?? Well of course we will be having some delicious treats at the end of the evening in either a sweet or savoury variety! Why not both?? Nothing like lots of variety of finger type foods which have been brought and prepared by our own members! Tea/coffee and cake will be provided by Capital Carousels as well. Please check the signup sheet at the registration desk this week and be sure to sign up to bring something either “sweet” or “savoury”.
At this point, the remainder of programs for the season have been posted on the website here. Also the Capital Caper section of the website has also been activated where you can find the registration flyer and information on all things about Capital Caper.
Our season may be coming to a close, but we are still in the party mood! Canada 150—Here we come!
