    Kris - I rsvp'd yes & attended but l too was unable to find the SIG group - probably too shy on my part but I sat at a small open table by bar in view of the dance lessons and just couldn't bring myself to ask each person "who are you here with?" Find it sad that others would tell people not to talk with you, not only rude but a bit odd. I found the location nice, the lessons were good - people were having fun. "A" for effort on your part, sorry I didn't formally check in with you, it really was my own insecurities - felt a little lost. Thanks

    I think the idea for event, location and efforts on the organizer's part were all very good. I am new to SIG (this was only my 2nd or 3rd event - finding each is very different, some have signs on table identifying the groups, others have a greater almost at the door, etc) unfortunately, I too was at last nights event, couldn't locate group, sat at small table near bar, people seemed to be enjoying themselves but I left after an hour or so. Sorry I was not brave enough to roam the room asking everyone who they were there with, I'm too shy...

    • Ms. Kris D.

      What did you mean by this sentence? "others have a greater almost at the door, etc"....Did you mean they have a bigger sign??....This event may have several other Meetup.com's at the event...so find OUR GROUP AND SIGN WEST OF THE BAR..IN BACK..ONLY ONE FRONT DOOR SO IT IS EASY TO FIND THE BACK, WHERE WE CAN PULL MANY TABLES TOGETHER IS ALONT SHOW UP!.....again, hope to see you out soon...I will put a regular sign of our group....ON THE TABLE..can't post it on the door, cause there is other groups, meetups and some people like me, go on their own, sometimes!

    • frank d.

      Im not sure where "behind" the bar is kris? But I did ask a few people about 2 tables being who I was looking for. and they said no, that they were "other" functions. As far as no pic...I apologize! Its only my cumputer illiteracy and unphotogenic problem...thats all! Lol! I'd really like to meet and learn some country dance though! I'm very sorry for not saying hi but even looking at your pic on this site it was hard to recognize you in person! I'll try calling you first, have a good day!!

      June 20, 2013

    I am sorry I have to cancel, I have some medical issues going on and need to stay off my feet. I look forward to meeting all of you at a future event!

    June 19, 2013

    • Ms. Kris D.

      Hi Liz, It is Ok if you had to cancel, I did NOT know or see this till now..after the event. I already called John and told him I would not sponsor this event again..I have been there 3 weeks in a row and know one has sat with me, came up and said Hi or anything. One guy said Hi but would not stay or dance with me: Don. That was it...I made new friends though..and some "mean" clicky ladies were telling everyone to not talk to me and stay away..so I won't host again..Patricia still has never even said Hi to me...if you want to go out dancing some time, call me..I might go out Friday to Cactus Moon 7 pm Dancing or alone next Wednesday as I always do, I won't get discouraged getting there early and waiting for people, who no showed, the one guy Frank said he couldn't find me...he sat up at the bar...I gave instructions 3 times now, that I would be at a table behind the bar and I post my picture.he had none....

  • frank d.

    I came but did'nt know who was who, I sat at the bar but had no idea who was instructing, I asked others at the bar if a group at one of the tables was this group but they said no...so I watched for a while and went home...not what I expected.

    June 19, 2013

    • Ms. Kris D.

      Hi Frank!..I was early and at the table I have said I would be at, the same as the last 3 times. I felt bad, too, know one came up to me, I sat most of the night alone, at the table BEHIND the BAR as I said, and I had a small Gilbert Singles sign up. I said that all three times I hosted. If you would have posted your picture, I could have maybe recognized you? Did you join the dance lesson? I look some like my picture. Call me if you want or go next time..I told John, I don't want to sponsor the event any more, as no one, came up to my table but Don. Know one stayed, I know there were several mean ladies telling people not to to talk to me, I'm use to them, they are in the other group I'm in, I don't even know the long haired ladies name. I was not even by her, and I am in the East Valley Kickers dance group too, and she came up and told me to "get out."

      June 20, 2013

    • Ms. Kris D.

      ....continued......... I don't even now her either. Not what "I expected" either. You must have talked to me or been near me, as I sat at the bar several times and about an hour all together! Call me if you want to meet there or somewhere else again, next time. I might go to Cactus Moon Dancing Friday. Kris [masked]

    • Ms. Kris D.

      Thanks, looks like we will have a good turn out of people this week!...See ya there..

  • frank d.

    Just moved here from seattle, like to learn country dance while getting used to the heat...and no rain!!!!

    June 17, 2013

    • Ms. Kris D.

      Thanks, Frank, see ya there, look for our table behind the bar (west) area and "pick up a few new dance moves each week, and get great exersize and meet new freinds, too!"

      June 17, 2013

  • Ms. Kris D.

    Laina can answer if Kids can join in: what age are they?..If they are older, I think they would enjoy it, if they can do it, or they can watch, if it looks to tough, I guess. This is a Bar, if you bring kids, remeber, it is a drinking place. See ya there!..Danace etiquet says to always dance at the level of the "least experienced dancer"....

    June 17, 2013

  • Ms. Kris D.

    Liz, Sorry I didn't get on here sooner this week to answer any questions and now the regulars can answer questions, too! You can see from my past posts, under this even: No partner is needed, they DO partner you up when you get there, and you rotate frequently to get to dance well with all levels of dancers. If you're a beginner, that is Fine! This is simple, amature, FREE & Fun excersize!..I recommend toStretch before you go! Wear lose clothing and shoes that will twist and turn. You will see Great dancers, but don't get intimidated: have fun above all! The time goes fast!. They do BOTH partner and line dances. Just pick up a few new dance moves each week and get overhelmed.

    Do you need a partner or is it line dancing?!

    June 13, 2013

    • Ms. Kris D.

      Yes, as I have posted, you don't need to bring a partner, they partner you up, when everyone gets there. Sometimes, there is more women than men, so we always encourage more men to show up! It is no big deal, sometimes me or the other women who know the dances and have been in dance along time, volunteer to do the men's role as lead dancer, if they are short on men..usually it evens out by the end of the night..just a few more women than men, but thats OK.

      June 14, 2013

  • Ms. Kris D.

    Yes, I had said "you don't need to bring a partner" to dance. They match up partners and rotate frequently so you get flexable with different dance level partners and more versatility.

    June 14, 2013

  • Patricia S.

    Hi. The second part of the lesson is line dancing. The first part does require a partner. Catherine & I went a couple weeks ago, and the instructor had the women rotate to a different male dancer every few minutes so that it's not necessary to bring a partner. With that said, we welcome any and all men who wish to come out and dance with us! It is a lot of fun, and we all get to dance with and meet several people.

    Hi Patricia, You will love it, good fun!
