28MAR17 – Great weekend to be a Clone

What can you get for FREE these days?  Hmmmm….well, you can take a FREE introductory West Coast Swing dance lesson the first Tuesday of every month at the Dovercourt House, and stay afterwards to dance – also for FREE!  🙂 Thanks to Shelley, and to all of you who have referred or brought friends/colleagues/family to check out our dance –  – oh, and Nelson, Kyle and Lucky for being such inspiring demo partners – and to everyone who has helped to make the newcomers feel welcome – this is become a super fun monthly event.

I’ve just had some new “FREE DANCE LESSON” cards printed and would be ever so grateful if you would take two or three or 20 – put them in your wallet, purse or knapsack, and offer them to anyone you think might be interested in learning West Coast Swing and becoming a part of our fun community. You will be fulfilling a public service. 🙂 Thanks in advance!!

Our next FREE lesson will again be taught by amazingly talented Shelley Saxena *next* week Tuesday, April 4th : Facebook Event or please see the TOWestCoast calendar.
