Jane Gromelski, Partners Western Dance Club president
The Partners Western Dance Club will continue dancing throughout the summer months in the MountainView Ballroom on Mondays at 6:00 p.m. These are not classes, but informal practice sessions. Harry and Dottie Adams volunteered to provide music and will organize the practices so we don’t forget all the dances we have learned. As Harry says, “It’s 100 degrees outside and air conditioned in the Ballroom,” so come have fun dancing. Since they volunteer, the schedule depends on their availability. Email Jane Gromelski at [email protected] or Dottie Adams at [email protected] to get on the summer email list.
Dottie and Harry will also host and DJ for informal dances at SaddleBrooke One on Wednesdays.
Starting on Oct. 16, Jane and Stan Gromelski, SaddleBrooke residents, will offer beginner and intermediate Texas 2-step and western waltz dance classes also on Wednesdays, starting at 6:00 p.m. They will run for five weeks and cost $40 per couple.
Jane and Stan try to make classes relaxed and fun – it’s easier to learn when you are having fun, and we dance because it is fun!
On Thursdays, beginners partner pattern dance classes start at 6:00 p.m. and intermediate classes at 7:00 p.m. These partner pattern dances offer a change of pace for our dancers. Some are easy, others more complicated, but they are all part of the challenge and fun of western dance. Each class costs $4 per person.
The Partners Western Dance Club’s first club dance will be on Saturday, Nov. 16 with Wild Ride, followed by the next dance on Dec. 3. There will also be a pre-New Year dance on Dec. 29, and Wild Ride will play for them all.
Dance Club membership is $15 per person and open to all SaddleBrooke residents. There will also be open dances on the third Wednesdays of October and December in the Vermilion Room of the SaddleBrooke clubhouse. Volunteer DJs will provide the music, so be prepared for a number of ground pounding, boot stomping, dance opportunities. Yee Haw!
Grab your partner, some friends and come join the growing number of Western dancers here in SaddleBrooke.
