Update from Kathleen:

Kathleen Scalise said:
Hello All My Dancing Friends:

I hope this email finds you all doing well...getting ready for the holiday
and finding time to dance!!

North Star Chapter Christmas Party this past Sunday was a fantastic time (if I do say so myself)!! If you missed...you missed a really good time!! We had 85 people, good food and LOTS of FUN!! Thank you all that attended and we look forward to seeing you next year!


Got some bad news...North Star Chapter and Pharcyde Entertainment dance that was scheduled for Saturday, December 13 has been cancelled. Due to a new 'Hip Hop' club opening up next to the Dance Conservatory, it has made it an unfavorable atmosphere for our dancers. Pharcyde Entertainment sent out a recent email announcing they will have a NEW home in a few short months in a better neighborhood and a brand new facility. I will keep you posted!!

Got some GOOD news...Boleros will be holding their Christmas dance on
Thursday, December 18 at 8:30. Since the facility is rented out every
week-end during the month of December, this was the only evening they could have it. I hope you will join them in celebrating the holidays on Thursday!!

Club Bimini is NOT open to the public on any Friday night during the month
of December. They are booked every Friday for private parties. We will see you in January, 2004!!

Don't forget about the YCN Intercontinental DanceSport Festival and Dance Camp in Daytona Beach, FL. This is right in our backyard!! The dates are January 4-10...it only happens every other year here in the states...this is one event you do not want to miss!! You must be a USABDA member - you can join there! Top coaches in the country come in for this...adult private lessons are only $70. Group classes all day, competition and professional shows at night!! For more information <http://idfusabda.accessdance.com/>

Getting ready for an upcoming competition or show...stop by Showtime Dance located in Boleros for all your dancing needs!! Consignment dresses and shoes as well as a full line of fashions by Tosco. Posted hours are 10 am - 9 pm, but I would suggest calling first. You can contact Miriam at 904.838.0736.

Wednesday, December 10. 5 Great Clubs In One Fabulous Location - Crazy Horse Saloon, Mardi Gras, Studebaker, The Blue Room & The Karaoke Bar Doors open at 8, cover charge is $5.

Update

It is with much regret that the North Star Chapter and Pharcyde dance
scheduled for this coming Saturday, January 24 is being cancelled. Due to
the Teen Hip Hop club that is next door to the Dance Conservatory...they
have created an undesirable atmosphere at the facility. They have been
given notice that they need to move out, but have until the end of the
month. Until we are sure they have vacated the premises, we will have to
hold off on scheduling any dances. I will keep you posted. Sorry for any
inconvenience.

Tim Carter is teaching Swing & Hustle lessons on Friday night at Studebakers
in Orange Park. 8pm-9:30pm No cover charge, but pay $7 to Tim for lessons.

Hopefully this will make it out to everyone!!!

Dear Dance Enthusiasts,

We regret to inform you of some unfortunate news. Last Friday, the new manager, Mike Weis, at the South Pointe Marriott let us know us we would not be able to teach our free class and run our music at Club Bimini about 3 minutes before the class was to begin. He informed us that a convention was in town and they would have control of the music. We were also told we would not be able to have Club Bimini on Friday, February 20th.

We expressed to him that we could not run our event if they were going to be booking it at minimal notice for other events and we informed him that we had a contract with the previous management group of the Marriott. Previously, the only time our group would not host our Friday event there is the month of December.

As all of you know, we have been hosting Friday nights at Club Bimini for over a year now and all of you have helped make that possible. The new food and beverage manager, Leanne Peck, informed us that we had "ticked off the wrong person" and we could no longer hold our event there.

We sincerely apologize because we feel like this night was a great way for our dance community to get together on a weekly basis for FREE! We are currently looking for a new venue to host our Friday nights. This isn't the first time we've had to move our event and it may not be the last, but our goal is to provide a positive dance environment for all of you.

Again we thank you all for your continued support and we are working quickly to find a new home. We will be in touch and have all new information posted on our websites: www.CopacabanaDancesport.com or www.Pharcyde-Ent.org
(904)724-6232

Sincerely,
Isaiah Meders & Leslie Peck
Copacabana Dancesport &
Pharcyde Entertainment

Kathleen Scalise said:
Hello ALL!!

Hope everyone is doing well and doing lots of dancing. Not a whole lot going on last week-end, but this week-end...things are looking up!!

The new Friday night Swing and Latin at Cuba Libre was a complete BUST!! We didn't make it, but from what I heard Leslie and Isaiah had about 40 people at the club and there was a smooth jazz band playing from 7-8:30. They did their group class then a solo guitar played the rest of the night and didn't let them play any of their music...so needless to say they won't be going back!!

There is NO USABDA dance in Daytona Valentines Day and no USABDA dance in February in Orlando


A couple of reminders...
Rhythm Tuesdays with Heather...at Southstreet Grille in Tinseltown!!! Only 1 lesson and it begin at 8:15 PM . No cover charge!

Well, If you have received our packet for the MidSummer Classic Xl (July 17, 2004) you have no doubt noticed a few discrepencies. In our enthusiam to get this information out to everyone, we didn't bother to proof read our packet. I will attempt to clear these little boo boo's up for you.

#1. The competition is July 17, 2004, not July 28, 2003.
#2. Like last year we offered a welcome party on Friday night. We will be doing that again this year. This a wonderful opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones. You will also have time to take a look at the ballroom. We will meet at the ballroom at 5:15 pm then leave to go to the Don Jose Cafe at 5:30. After dinner if you like you can come back to the ballroom to practice or just hang out. The ballroom will be open from 7-9. If you are planning to join us please RSVP to Scott and Sarah Coates at: sostar@tampabay.rr.com
#3. The American Smooth and International Standard events will be in the morning session and the Rhythm and Latin will be in the afternoon session.
#4. Your entry should be postmarked by June 30, 2003 to avoid the late fee.

Hello!!

Guess it's been a few weeks since I have sent out a newsletter...hope everybody is doing well and doing lots of dancing. As you can imagine...we have been pretty busy putting the house together...it is a never ending task...but has been a lot of FUN!!!

Got lots of new stuff listed and a pretty jammed packed calendar for the summer (which usually is a slow time)!! Read carefully...don't want anybody to miss a dance!!

Came across this ad...anybody looking to relocate...a house with a ballroom...check out all the pics...this is the write-up
****Entering the Grand Ballroom from the Formal Living Room is an unparallel experience. One can't help but feeling that that they have just entered a architural master piece. Intricate woodwork, Imported Columns all surround by walls of glass which provide nature as your back drop. To see this exquisite home click on the following link:
http://www.newjerseyestates.net/highoaks/index.htm

I heard 8 seconds closed...anybody know anything about that???

I haven't updated the weekly dance page on the website in a while: http://www.scalise.com/dancing/weekly_dance_venue.htm

I don't think much has changed, but I will take a look and give it an 'overhaul' SOON!!

***Each Wednesday, starting June 16, 2004, 8:00 p.m. until......HOKEY POLKEY - KARAOAKE NIGHT with Jim Polkey and Family at Club Savoy. Admission is only $5 (Club Savoy provides spring water and Pepsi products)
Most of the music is danceable. Anyone who loves to sing, should give this a try!

***Wednesday night at Bourbon Street - Lesson are FREE - Ladies over 21 NO COVER...Men $5 cover charge.
East Coast Swing with Clark and Debbie Fullbright in Crazy Horse. Lessons are from 8-9:30
Night Club 2 Step with Debi Dillow in Studebakers. Lessons from 8:15 - 9:30.

***Thursday nights at Bourbon Street - Lessons are FREE - $5 cover charge.
FUN Line dances in Crazy Horse with Debi Dillow from 8:15-9:30. Lessons are free

***Thursday nights at Dance Warehouse, Stan McKinney is giving some dance lessons...
6 weeks Thursdays 7 pm till 9 pm $50 per person, $90 per couple with Stan McKinney. Call Stan at 379- 0022 or Dance Warehouse at 353-1748

Looks like there is a new dance venue starting up on Friday...
