Ruth Wilbourne Gandel, Membership Coordinator for USA Dance TriCities Chapter 6060, wrote in to talk about the Chapter’s Valentine’s Dance.
There was a highly energetic and enthusiastic crowd, Saturday, February 10, at the Valentine’s Dance, held at the Wesley Fellowship Hall in Colonial Heights, Virginia. Beautiful Valentine’s decorations, provided by Melissa Morris, created the perfect atmosphere for the night, and Jennifer Ambs brought a Disco ball which upped the energy level.
Judy and Bobby Chiles taught an excellent Shag lesson and later that evening showcased their talents with an advanced Shag routine. Then Judy put on the tunes and took requests the rest of the evening.
“Smiling faces were everywhere,” said Chapter President Louise Winheim. “The lesson by Bobby and Judy Chiles as well as their showcase was fantastic. The energy on the dance floor was undeniable…We had a raffle for boxes of Valentine candy which brought sweet comments and more smiles.”
Tri-Cities dances are the social events to attend in South Central Virginia. The members love to dance! This is a fun opportunity to get some exercise, see old friends and make new ones, and dance to great music.
