MARK YOUR CALENDARS - We have just confirmed that JOHN ROBINSON has added Eastside to his schedule for the Wednesday before Hot Lanta or August 22nd.   As always cost will be $5 and John always brings a lot of energy and fun to Eastside Station in Snellville GA.

Pass the word so we have a large crowd!!


Have you joined the World Line Dance Newsletter Group on Facebook yet?   Just put WORLD LINE DANCE NEWSLETTER in the search box on Facebook and ask to be added and I'll approve you.  WE ARE ALMOST TO THE 2000 MARK!  Thanks for joining, everyone.  I love seeing your posts and new dance videos.   Please remember to share your posts with the newsletter AS WELL AS the WLDN Group because lots of people don't want to do social media but they still want to hear what you are doing in the line dance world.

We have not brought this up in a while but…. IF you are instructing FOR A FEE… you must have music licenses!!! 

Failure to obtain a license to perform publicly copyrighted music is copyright infringement under the copyright law. The copyright infringer is subject to a civil suit in federal court. Sanctions against an infringer can include an injunction and the copyright owner's actual damages, as well as the infringer's profits or "statutory damages" of up to $20,000 for each copyrighted song performed without a license (up to $100,000 if the infringement is willful). The infringer can also be required to pay the copyright owner's legal fees. The law further provides for criminal sanctions against those who willfully infringe on a copyright for commercial advantage or private gain. Criminal violations are punishable by up to a $25,000 fine and/or up to a year in prison.

ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC use different fee schedules. NTA has negotiated a contract with each licensing company to reduce the licensing fees for its members. Licensing fees through NTA are about half of the cost that licensing directly through the companies would be. The fees, based on the cost of living index, change each year. The amounts are listed on the applications for licensing (found below in HTML and PDF format for your convenience).

The music licensing companies do NOT license instructors. They are involved only in the use of copyrighted music. While you do not have to have a license to teach, you DO have to have a music license to use the music for your lessons.

For a complete description the dance union, NTA,   has good information at this link:  

The National Fast Dance Association  also has similar warnings about being licensed. 

Did you know that currently in the United States, social dance clubs and multi-day dance events are required by copyright law to pay licensing fees for music played at parties and events? We help our members save money on these fees by allowing them to come under our national licensing umbrella that we have with the three Performing Rights Organizations (ASCAP, BMI and SESAC).  Members receive substantial savings on music licensing fees for their dance events, parties, and classes.

You are invited to the Country Western Social Club's monthly dance held at the Yaarab Shrine  This Friday, July 13, 2018

This Saturday is the monthly Moose Lodge line dance event in McDonough.  This monthly event is NORMALLY held on the second Saturday of each month…..  Cost is now $7!!

NOTE:  The Moose Lodge has a polished concrete floor, so wear shoes accordingly as it does not slide like a wood one does but sure is better than vinyl tile.  Dancers "Foot Tubes" are available for purchase from Tommy and Lynn Bailey at the MOOSE.  

Lynn Bailey runs a list at the front, so it is your opportunity to request old and favorite ones, (bring the music if you have it just in case). 

The dance area is SMOKE FREE.   There is a bar and you can purchase drinks at the Moose.

The Henry County Moose Lodge is located just off Georgia 155, west of I-75. For those wanting to look it up on Map Quest or Google Map or put it in your GPS, the technical address is:
91 Hunter Chase
McDonough, Georgia 30253

Take either I-675 or I-75 south of I-285 to the 5th exit below where 675 and 75 merge.  The Exit on I-75 is 216 which is Georgia Route 155.  This is the southern of the McDonough exits. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right toward Griffin, (Ga-155 south).   There will be a Quality (formerly Holiday) Inn on your right as you come off I-75.

Follow Ga-155 for about a mile and turn RIGHT into the entrance to the "Hunters' Run" subdivision on your right. You MUST turn into the subdivision entrance street to get to the driveway for the Moose Lodge. The Lodge drive does not connect directly to Ga-155.

Once inside, follow the hall around to the right to the rear of the building for their ballroom. It is a tile floor. Come on down and give it a shot...

If you are coming from the Loganville - Lawrenceville or Grayson area, get on Georgia 20 going south and follow this through Conyers, Magnet, and into McDonough.  Once in McDonough where Ga-20 goes right, (toward the square) you keep going straight so watch the signs and stay on Ga-155 south.  This will circle around and once you go under I-75, you will see the Quality Inn on your right and the directions above will apply.
