 This Week in Review

Circle 8's 
Wow!!  
I never take dancer attendance for granted.  I am truly honored to see so many people made the choice to dance with the Circle 8's. It was an interesting night with a workshop of "Let's Run It".  I will review it again and use it at an upcoming dance.  Be ready.  The strange events of various slide thru's came into play.  What was that girls run 1 1/2 about?  Where did that come from?  I do not know, but, I promptly put it back.  See you at the next Circle 8's dance.  Thank you 5 Squares!!!
Why are the crowds so great at every Circle 8 dance?  They can dance, they have a great array of food, and they welcome guests with open arms.  That my friends is the recipe for success!!!  

I challenge you to come to the next Circle 8's dance and try to have a miserable time.  Just saying as simply as possible, it will not happen!!
