    Next Saturday will be the fourth of July weekend, so many of us may be at Nora's Tango Week, Yet I will be at the studio at 11 a.m. should anyone want to come for a lesson, a refresher, or just a chance to dance. Last Saturday we were in the smaller pilates room, with the reformers moved to the regular studio, but we did manage to make it work. On the third and Fifth Saturday of the month, we will be hosting Ed Loomis as our guest instructor, who has offered to focus the 2nd class on "vals" (Argentine Waltz) Until then we will continue to work on basics.

    The rest of our schedule for this week will be normal

    Until later, Mary
