    Oh man, it was so amazing though. Sean & I are doing really well and are excited for the new year.

    Enjoy... the marriage and the dancing. May God bless you both with joy and with the wisdom to enjoy each other. 8) :D Dance is certainly important, but it comes later for the two of you... at least right now.

    btw, if you can recommend any good dance teachers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I'd really appreciate it. (I live in Frisco which is a little North of Dallas, but I'll take what I can get. I hear Dallas is a great place to learn swing. 8) )

    Hmmm, I know more people in Houston, but email me separately at swing@jitterbugclub.com and I will forward your question to some of the other Texas scenes and they will have an answer for you.

    Hello Tonya. How have you been? still in LA?

    Sean & I are doing great...we bought a house in LA so we are here for a while!! We really love it here. We have started up a Monday night venue in LA which has been going well. It is called Sugarfoot Stomp, check out our cool web page: www.sugarfootstomp.com.

    AND, more importantly, I have started an event planning business which has always been a dream of mine. It is going well and it feels good to be getting my feet wet here in LA in a world outside of dancing:) www.eventfulplanners.com is my new business name for that side of things.

    Sean & I are enjoying married life and he is working hard at his job. Of course I miss Seattle, but I get to visit there a lot so that makes it kinda okay.

    How are YOU?

    Pretty good, I always love traveling to Seattle. I was there over Thanksgiving; went out dancing, but didn't go to the Century. I'm going to be there again in June. Did you ever take up Salsa? you had expressed an interest earlier.

    Glad to hear things are going well for both of you.

    I was at our local WCS club dance last night and saw your name on the Reno Dance Sensation flyer.

    I have just social danced some salsa once in a blue moon...it is fun but I just haven't had the time to explore other dancing interests. Tango, tap, salsa, hip hop, I need more time in the day!!

    Yeah, Sean & I are teaching at Reno this weekend, it should be a lot of fun. I will be djing as well...are you going?

    No, can only afford to do the Seattle trip and possibly a short trip to San Diego later on.
