Hey everyone,

I’m sorry about the last minute room change last week! No worries at all if you weren’t able to make it to the lesson. In beginner tomorrow, we’ll be starting a new series anyways so you didn’t miss anything that you would need for this week.

This new room is at North Grounds Recreation Center, multipurpose room 2 (where we moved last week). You can take the North Line, but hopefully we can also get everyone a ride who needs one. If you are driving– whether it’s to intermediate or beginner– PLEASE throw your name and number on this doc so everyone can make it. If you’re running a little late, no worries at all– just be sure to text or call your driver if you’re getting picked up. Tomorrow we can talk about any time adjustments to the lesson that may be needed.

This Week
Monday: Lessons
February 19th in NGRC MP 3 (Upstairs)
8:15 – Intermediate: Connect Up!
9:15 – Beginner: Eight Count I
10:15 – Social Dance

Wednesday: SwingCville
February 14th, 8:45, Front Porch, $5
Thanks to those of you who ventured out to SwingCville on Valentine’s Day! It was great seeing you guys 🙂 SwingCville dances in that same place every week so come swing out at 8:45 or take an intro lesson at 8. Get or give a ride here!

Upcoming
Book Club
???, ????, ??????
We’re going to read American Allegory: Lindy Hop and the Racial Imagination. I’m trying to gauge interest so please fill this out if you’re interested!

Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions and/or concerns. We know this space isn’t the most convenient and want to make sure as many people can come as possible ☀

Best,
Emily
