wrote on the Chapter: VA - #6008 Tidewater wall: We are sending out a big thanks to those who braved the nasty weather last Saturday evening for the sake of a nice social dance at Rants Ballroom Company in Virginia Beach. For those who were unable to attend we did miss you and hope you can come in March when we will be moving to A Time to Dance! We kicked off the evening with a fantastic Mambo lesson from Marie. As usual she was well prepared with a great new pattern. Several volunteers brought in some refreshments and we managed to have three Dance Hosts in attendance. While not a record our attendance was good considering the weather and competing events. Our DJ was Walter and his wife Judy who kept the floor full until the first break. During the break we had our drawing for the complimentary upcoming dance ticket and the 50/50 Youth Scholarship. The 50/50 had a record amount so thanks everyone and a special thanks to Bonnie Hackett for making sure everyone had a chance to buy a raffle ticket. Marie and student Tim Sovine then took to the floor to perform a really fantastic, energetic and well prepared Disco performance. We loved it! Another new feature introduced was to encourage attending studio owners to take the microphone for 30 seconds to introduce and let us know what's new with their studio. Attending and speaking was Marie Bezubic co-owner of DanceSportVA who was attending with her husband and partner Bob Orsini, Regina Kalbacher owner of 757Dance, Cassandra Ivey, co-owner of Studio 2C and finally Marie Rants, owner of Rants Ballroom Company. All of these studio owners gave a thoughtful and good presentation. They also brought several students each to help out the Chapter. Thank you to all four owners! We also noted that in attendance were several other dance professionals as well as several prior Chapter Board members and prior officers. Thanks to them for their continued interest. After the break Walter and Judy kicked up the tempos to make sure all dancers went home exhausted but feeling good! Next month, on March 23rd, the Chapter Dance will be held at A Time to Dance where Katja Marc-Harris from DanceSportVA will give everyone another well prepared lesson, This time the style will be Cha-Cha and the DJ will be Alan Hedgpeth. We are looking forward to it.
