Demo News:

The Festival of Trees was a success in Springfield November 25th. We had a large group of dancers all decked out in Holiday colors at the Orr Building
at the State Fair Grounds. The festival was wonderful as always with beautiful trees and wreathes all decorated and looking pretty. 

The Timber Creek Village demo in Lincoln was also a big success. They had a great area for us to dance and there were many residents that enjoyed our demonstration. 

We don't have any other demos on the schedule right now and will be taking a little winter break while we dream of warmer temps!

Everyone is welcome anytime to dance in demos and/or at demo practice -- just let Patty, Sharon or Suzi know if you have questions.
