      I actually saw you and I think you saw me but maybe you didn't realize it was me I promise I'll say hi next time. You looked pretty busy behind the counter.

      Ahhhhh, yeah, I was helping out till the bartenders showed. For sure say hi next time :)

    As the host and organizer of this event, I was quite pleased with the number of people that attended from each of the 10 Singles and Dance clubs, what a great crowd. Great opportunity for men and women to meet others from the various groups. I thought the music selection was good, however, I've heard comments that there wasn't any West Coast Swing, Rumba and Cha Cha music. Message received, changes to include those dance steps is on the list for improvements. Liquor lineup and wait time was too long, tables to crowded and too far from the dance floor...already have solutions to those minor glitches, taken care of, check it out at the next dance.
    Thank you so much Michael for helping to promote the dance, also thanks to the pretty and popular dance instructor, Monika. Look forward to working with both of you at future dances.

      I think for a first time run @ an event that incorporated so many diverse groups, you did very well Kim! The best part is people are kind enough to offer feedback so you can make the next one even better. I love learning through experience, that's what it's all about :D

      And thanks again for having me out to teach <3

    Music, people, atmosphere & venue was good, although a little cool with doors open. Disappointed with dancing, didn't know the steps, so didn't dance.

      Thanks for coming out Shawn, best way to learn social dancing is to keep going to parties and taking some group classes. Check out http://www.dance-evol...­ for more information, have a good one!

    Thanks to everyone who made it such a fun night, big shout out to Kim for organizing and bringing everyone together. Definitely a rocking party and a great way to kick off the long weekend! Looking forward to the next one, have a good week!

  • Kim L.

    A big thank you to Michael (Dance of Love) for assistance with promoting this event, and of course to Monika for the excellent dance lessons.

    • Monika H.

      Awe, I can't access the rest of this post - but thanks for having me out to teach!

  • Kim L.

    Hello to all, I thank all of you that attended the dance last night. I hope you had a good time, got on the dance floor a few times and enjoyed the company around you. This being my first solo time organizing and hosting a large dance, I was quite pleased. I was amazed at the large number of people that attended.

    The next dance event is on Friday, November 9th, again at the Old Timers Cabin. A husband and wife, live band, " Wise Choice ", from Red Deer will be performing. They do play more popular, current Country and Western songs, still playing popular pop and rock music.

    I do realize there were some glitches and I appreciate the feedback from those that spoke with me, providing ideas to make future dances better.

    1. I will try a different seating arrangement. Lining one row of tables on each side of the dance floor. This will remove tables from the center of the room, allowing the dance to flow further down, past the center of the hall. This will put people closer to the dance floor and your seating won't be as crowded.

    October 12, 2013

  • Kim L.

    2. There will be two working bartenders. One will be at the existing bar, serving liquor and wine. The other will be working at a separate bar table in the alcove to the right of the bar, serving beer, pop and water.

    3. I directed the bartenders to pour all drinks into glasses so no bottles or cans went to the tables - saving someone from having to collect them at the end of the night. I realize that took extra time for the bartender to pour the drinks. To speed that up people will take the bottles and cans to the table.

    4. I will take a lesson on how to work and control the lighting. The dance floor was too dark and the lights in the seating area were too bright...have to change that next time.

    October 12, 2013

  • Kim L.

    I am open to hearing more suggestions on how this event can be improved for your enjoyment. My home email address is listed below, I welcome your suggestions.

    I'm making a dance email list, if you care to send me your email address, you will be added and get personal up to date info on future dances.

    Thanks again greatly appreciated your support and attendance at the dance.

    Very nice time last night. Full house that's for sure. Excellent lesson, dance floor, venue, music. Would be nice to have another mixer so people from different groups could mix a little more. Next time.

    I'm relieved to hear I am not the only one hesitant about showing up alone. I've haven't taken two-step or night club yet- anyone willing to show me a couple of basic steps, enough to get through part of a song?

    Hi there, till when it is possible to RSVP??...I see many enthusiastic people here and it has the air that is going to be fun!..but is not a good perspective to show up alone, so I'm still trying to drag some friend with me :-)

    It's all good to come alone. Most singles do. Ladies, just ask a gentleman to walk you to your car at night.
    I also have my own group of dance friends, so will be sitting in another section, so do come over and meet me - Kim Maksym's group, and I will be coming and meeting you too. See you at the dance lesson :) It's going to be fun!!!

    Don't worry too much about not being a great dancer, you can learn a few steps from the dance lesson between 8:00 - 9:00 pm, then practise throughout the night on the dance floor with a partner. Free style is quite acceptable, shake, rattle and roll to the music.

    October 6, 2013

  • Kim L.

    I'm looking forward to Friday, still lots of preparation to do, but it will be a great night. I have received well over 100 RSVP's, going to be a great mix of people from various singles and dance clubs.
