September series start next week September 9th.

Last week, DJ Alex P kept the dance floor filled. It's always great to see everyone out on the floor! We love being able to stretch our swing-outs to the max on the big floor at Starlite Ballroom now that we're there permanently. Thanks to everyone for helping us continue to grow! We're really on fire this summer!

Don't forget NEXT WEEK, September 9th, join us for another fabulous BAND NIGHT! We will be hosting Clint Baker and the Cafe Borrone All Stars, so remember to invite your family and friends!

As we announced last week, we're working on a special surprise for our wonderful team alumna, Andrea Owens. For those of you that missed it, we've started a book for everyone to share memories, thank yous, and farewells as she leaves us for her new opportunities in Pasadena. Please remember to bring your photos, thoughts, quotes, or anything else you'd like to add to the book to share and send her off Wednesday Night Hop style. We appreciate everything she's done for us and really want her to know it!!

We'll see you on the dance floor!

1. THIS WEEK: September 2nd - DJ Gabe & Andrea! Classes, Food, & Fun!

Special Aerias Classes - this WEEK!

Level 1 - Flying & Basing Fundamentals - with Trevor & Audrey
8:00 - 9:00pm

Level 2 - Basic Air Steps - with Trevor & Audrey
7:00 - 8:00pm

Frankie Manning created the first "Air Step" with his partner, Frieda Washington to wow the crowd at a dance contest at the Savoy Ballroom in the 1930's. These days an "Air Step" or Aerial, as they are sometimes called, is defined as any move in which both the follower's feet leave the ground at the same time. Join us on September 2nd to learn a few Flying and Basing techniques for Followers and Leaders.  Matching taller partnerships and shorter partnerships will be helpful for this class. We will form groups of four or five, two leaders and two followers +1, so we can still benefit from experiencing different leads and follows while also establishing more familiarity within a single partnership and/or group.

2. Next week: New Series start September 9th

We have the pleasure to announce that Laura is back teaching at WNH this month after her baby time-off! Check out her bio:
