Big Band Music Appreciation Swing Dance Society

Dear Friends,
BBMA continues!!!

This is the week!!! Be sure to come dance with us this Sat., April 14, 2007. Eastwood Christian Church--7:30 lessons 8:30-11:00 dancing More details below.

We've cleaned the floor to take off the unnecessary polish. According to some of the expert dancers this wonderful old hardwood is a "fast floor" so bring your regular shoes, not your extra smooth ones.
Joe and Connie will be back to teach beginner lessons. We will not routinely have an intermediate lesson. If any of you want to organize one just let me know.
