    For those of you who enjoyed the ballroom dancing, there are plenty of opportunities to indulge the taste, even if it's not through a meetup here. Email me directly, and I'll be happy to tell you of the things I know coming up, like Swing Nite at the Rock 'N Bowl on Wednesday 12/4.

      For more info, send me an email and I'll answer directly, instead of taking up space here.

    I had a blast...but then, I think I always do when ballroom dancing. It was good to meet the others who came, to renew my acquaintance with other dancers from around the area, and to meet a few new folks, too.

      Laura is being modest. You should have seen her cutting the rug. FYI: the Scifi channel is running all the Star Trek movies this weekend. Live long and prosper!

    I felt like a Neanderthal when I first began dancing, as compared, to the more advanced dancers. At the end, I was advanced to Cro-magnon man. With time I feel I will advance to Homosapien. Otherwise, I had a great time. Pleasant crowd of folks. The prices on the beer was very reasonable. Ditto soft drinks.

    Laura, thanks for the "like". I read your profile and you mentioned those magic words to my ears "Star Trek". Is it TOS or TNG Star Trek?

      And I didn't even have to join the Council in the Katric Ark to figure it out!

    Haven't taken ballroom dancing lessons in years. But, what the heck.

    ...a couple notes:
    - the event itself is not a singles event...many of the regulars are married
    - for the gentlemen, there are always more ladies at these dances, so you'll never lack a dance partner!

    The folks at these dances are very gracious to those who are new to ballroom dancing. And it's a great way to meet teachers and students from studios all around the area.

    As usual, I am really a maybe, but I love to dance so I'll make an effort!
