April Update

Well spring is supposed to arrive any day now but I’m not holding my breath!

We are now into our Spring dance session which started Monday April 1st for the 3-5 group and Thurs. April 4th for the 3-4 group. The session will continue for 6 weeks for both groups, dance dates can be found under the “Club Calendar” menu on the website. For the Monday group please note there will be NO dancing on Apr.22 which is Easter Monday.

In other news the flyer and registration form for Capital Caper 2019 is now available. There is a section devoted to Capital Caper 2019 on the website under the “Capital Caper” heading. This years Caper will be held on Oct. 25th & 26th. It would be helpful to the organizers if you could get your completed registration form in as early as possible so they can get an idea on what attendance looks like. Past Capers have been well attended events with top notch instruction from clinicians Steve and Irene Bradt so don’t miss it.

“Swing Into Spring” is fast approaching. It is being held at South Grenville District High School, 1000 Edward Street North, Prescott, Ontario on May 3-5. The round dance program includes instruction at the phase 3 and 4 levels with dancing from easy rounds to phase 3 and 4 with a limited amount of phase 5 dances — as well as an “Introduction to Round Dancing” for those wishing to get started round dancing. The dance flyer can be seen at http://www.eodance.ca/flyers/190503SIS_Flyer.pdf

As always our regular dance programs are available on the club website several days ahead of the actual dance date so you have some time to do your homework on dances if you wish. Remember there are demos of numerous dances on our Dropbox site at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1cagnq30wix91y3/AAAXgiEtaP7syL7S3sE2MHQOa?dl=0


Winter/Spring Transition

It is Mar 6 and with warm temperatures outside, the snow is melting. We hope the transition to spring has started. At Capital Carousels though, spring will have to hold off for a few weeks as the end of our Winter Session has been moved to Apr 6+7 to make up for our 2 snow days we had in February. Our Spring Session will now be 4 weeks in length and run from the week of Apr 13-14 and end the week of May 4-5. The cost will be $28/person or $56/couple for the 4 week session. If you are paying per week, the fee will continue at $10/person or $20/couple. Also remember after our Spring Session ends, we will have some special visitors in on May 11+12 with a couple of bonus teaches-phase 3+4! JL and Linda Pelton will be with us and we get the benefit of their excellent instruction for just $5/person for BOTH DAYS! We will also celebrate immediately after Thursday’s session with a potluck lunch at Parkdale. What a wonderful way to end the Pelton’s visit and a fun 2 days. Can’t wait. Wednesday, May 18 will be our last day and a culmination of our dance season for 2015/2016. Both our Wednesday and Thursday dancers are invited and we will enjoy a full night of dance. Come and join us for our last dance of the 2015-2016 season!
With the spring comes the return of our snow birds! We look forward to seeing you all again and finding out about all of your adventures this year. Maybe even a few dances! It’ll be here before we know it!
It seems like it was so long ago when we started talking about Swing Into Spring. Unbelievable as it may seem, it will be here Apr 29-May 1. If you are wanting to go, now is the time to sign up. David Goss and Ulla Figwer will be back once again and as we know, they are excellent instructors. What levels are taught at Swing Into Spring are based on what levels the enrolled dancers have requested. They won’t know what level you want taught at the event if you don’t enroll and indicate it on the registration form. Sign up soon!
It seems like this year is flying by! We don’t want anyone to miss out on what’s going on as there is still lots to come in our dance season! See you on the dance floor!
