Partners Western Dance Club will continue dancing in the summer months in the MountainView Ballroom on Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. These are not classes, but informal practices. Since the Fitness Room will be renovated, the group has moved to the Ballroom, but check with Dottie for dates. Harry and Dottie Adams have 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 Fitness Room,” come have fun dancing. Since they volunteer, the schedule depends on their availability. Email me (see below) to get on the summer email list, or email Dottie at [email protected].

In mid-October, Jane and Stan Gromelski, SaddleBrooke residents, will offer Beginner and Intermediate Texas Two-Step and Western Waltz dance classes, again on Wednesdays, starting at 6:00 p.m. Classes will begin on October 18. They will run for five weeks, and tuition is $40 per couple.

We try to make classes relaxed and fun. It is easier to learn when you are having fun, and we dance because it is FUN!

On Thursdays, we will continue to offer Beginners Partner Pattern dance classes at 6:00 p.m., and Intermediate classes will start at 7:00 p.m. These Pattern dances offer a change of pace for our dancers. Some are easy and others more complicated, but they are all part of the challenge and fun of Western dance. These classes are $4 per person, per class.

The Partners Western Dance Club has dances scheduled with Branded Duo on Sunday, November 12, and with Wild Ride on Sunday, December 3, and a Grand New Year’s Eve Dinner Dance. Club membership is $15 per person and is open to all SaddleBrooke and SaddleBrooke Ranch residents. We will also have open dances on the third Thursday of October and December in the Vermilion Room of the SaddleBrooke clubhouse. Volunteer DJ’s will provide the music. Be prepared for a number of ground pounding, boot stomping dance opportunities. Yee Haw!

Grab your partner and some friends and come join the growing number of Western dancers here in SaddleBrooke.
