with September Photos

Our Country Picnic Dance had a low turnout but those who did attend had a great time dancing to the awesome music provided by our house DJ Ed.

Kathy Peoples taught some new moves in Country 2 step which was demonstrated in our mixer. You all looked awesome!


It is that time of year that we get to enjoy dressing up in Halloween Costumes. There will be a prize for the best costume.

Carrie Smith will be back to teach more moves in WCS

Dear Dance Family,


We are exploring the possibility of changing the venue for our monthly dance from the Robert Reed Center to the St John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church (3301 N33 Street). If we are able to negotiate a contract, we would have to change the day of our monthly dance from Saturdays to either a Thursday or Sunday evening. This change would take place after the first of the year.


Since we rely on our members for the success of the dances, we feel the first step is to know you interest and desire. It is imperative that we receive your input.


Please indicate if you are in favor of one of the following three options:


A. Remain at the Robert Reed Center on Friday or Saturday evenings.


B. Thursday evening at the St John the Baptist Church


C. Sunday evening at the St John the Baptist Church


Please simply respond to this email and copy katherine.johnson44@verizon.net


Thank you from the USA Dance Grand Strand Board Members

Gloria Reeves, Greg Collings, Katherine Johnson, Kathy Peoples, Dennis Esandrio, and Denise Block
