Hi Colorado Springs Dancers!

Hello dancers... And, so long... sweet summer!
Wow! This summer came in such a whirlwind - and is ending just as quickly! This is a newsletter full of incredible summer memories, NEW autumn dance lessons, and a sneak-peek into some very special upcoming events!

At All About Dance, we're passionate about bringing this fun, popular, and "real" social dancing to the community ...and we're building quite an incredible dance family! We want to give dancers an opportunity to try new dance styles, learn choreography, and grow in their own amazing dancing journey. We love that we're building unique friendships and having a blast while we're at it! Whatever it is you're looking for in your dancing, let us help you find it, here at All About Dance.

Celebrating a Summer of DANCE!!
We have had quite an amazing summer! Our All About Dance team has hit the stage at several different venues around the city, as well as different events around the country (and even an international dance adventure, too)!

Every year, we find more and more opportunities to get dancing...
Dancing for JOY!

This summer: we danced down the road in a parade, met up at 6 AM to dance by the hot-air balloons, we've performed on stage for hundreds, and at several city festivals. How cool to be out and about * using* this awesome hobby to have a blast while inspiring more and more dancers... What a joy!
Our International West Coast Swing Rally group brought dancers together from across Colorado! Thank you to the groups who came together - we're so glad to join with the Loves for some of our big performances! Thank you friends and community - we love all the dancers who showed up with smiles to be a part of this neat dancing purpose! ALL are welcome next year... Starting May 2019!
~Join the FUN - ALL are welcome - Come dance with us!~

Oh...and for those of you wondering, Kay's summer was electric !! Thank you all for offering your kind words. She had her procedure (some kind of electrical pain management implant) the beginning of the month and is back and busy dancin' already! Nothing can keep this wonderful woman down... Kay hopes to be pain free with the implant (so far, so good!)

Thank you Larry and Lana!
This Season's Last Snowbird WCS dance is...
Sunday, September 19th, at 6:00 pm

During the summer, All About Dance is graced with a special crowd: our Snowbirds! This special thank you and highlight goes to Larry and Lana, who support the studio in a multitude of ways. Their time and talents go into helping to make All About Dance better and better!

Larry uses his professional DJ experience and knowledge to lend a friendly, helping hand to the studio. This summer, Larry invested his time and resources to find a solution to the large-room-echo we had. He tests the sound and echo, then adds sound boards to balance and improve the overall sound of the room... It's very cool!

All About Dance is full of special touches that Larry was so helpful and kind to take care of. With practicality in mind and attention to detail, Larry and Lana came as a wonderful breath of fresh air each summer. They helped at a very important time for the studio... and me, personally, and I cannot say thank you enough (you two are amazing - thank you SO much!! Love, Tasha)

Be sure to come to Larry and Lana's last dance of the summer - show your support - on Sunday, September 19th, at 6:00 pm!
Interested? Join in! Simply meet us there!

Ready for a night on the town?!
Let's get out and dance! Join instructors: Tasha, John, DeLene, Kay, and Angel ...and more of the All About Dance crew as we hit the town. Remember, we're learning to dance for a reason...and putting it out there on the floor is one of those reasons!

Friday nights at Cowboys is a great night for dancing. Even more convenient is Saturday at the Whiskey Barron. Our instructors - Kay, John, or Tasha teach a FREE two-step lesson 6 pm - 7 pm. We'll stick around for some social dancing!

Both nights, it's recommended that dancers show up early, so we have some floor time while its less busy. We aim for at least one night out dancing each weekend! Join us, and embrace our fantastic community!
