North Florida Dance Happenings Posted 4/25/03

From Kathleen Scalise - North Star (Florida) USABDA


Hope this email finds everybody doing well and doing lots of dancing...I started this last week...where does time go??

Let's see...we lost another dance venue...Celebrations The Event Centre will no longer be holding Ballroom dance events on the third Friday any longer...due to lack of participation they felt they had to discontinue this venue. A loss for us dancers here in Jacksonville. I also heard that there is no longer a dance at Knights of Columbus on Friday nights ... where have I been???

Last week-end was the 64th River City Mini Match...small one this time...Tommy and Lynn did a great rhythm show! Congrats to Tiffany Korte from ASA who won the Jr. Amateur Battle of the Giants and to Charles McCaffrey and Heather Wilcox for the 'Duel' of the Silver Slipper. Congrats to all of you that danced!! Great job! Next Mini Match will be July 12.

Let's see what we got coming up...
