THIS WEEKEND
The NEXT Atlanta Country Nights is THIS Saturday night, Feb 27th at Atlanta Dance in Marietta. Located at 2211 Roswell Road, just east of 75 on Roswell Rd. Very easy to find. If you've not been out to AD to see the remodeling they've done, this is a great time to do so. Dance is from 7 to midnight. 

Reminder, 21+,, BYOB (bring what you like to drink from beer & wine to soda and water and snacks).   Coolers are ok, just no coolers with wheels.  Advance tickets are $10 per person or $12 at the door. You can reserve a table for you and friends for 2 to 5 people. Or you can call to reserve your tickets or table between 9am and 4pm daily by calling 470-299-3901.  You can get your table or single tickets online by going to Georgia-Country.com : Georgia's Home for Country Music 

THIS Saturday, Feb 27th. Winter Country Workshop at Atlanta Dance. Starting at noon and lasting thru 5pm, couples lessons all day. Instructors include all World Champion dancers, Rachel Chamption, Bob Hohn, Charles Jones & Dennis Woods. The schedule will be: Noon - Debra Cleckler, Night Club Two Step; 1PM - Charles Jones - Cha-cha; 2PM - Dennis Woods - Waltz;  3PM - Bob Hohn - West Coast Swing; 4PM - Rachel Champion - Two Step. You can register for single classes for $20 each or for the WHOLE day for just $75, which INCLUDES the dance that night.  We will NOT have a line dance workshop at 5pm. There was not enough interest in line dance lessons. From 5pm and 7, there will be open practice dancing for all workshop attendees or everyone can use this time for a break, go get dinner, etc.  The regular Sat night dance will start at 7pm. Registration for the workshop and/or advance tickets for just the dance, go to the link above. 

NOTE: We have placed the dance at Ballroom Impact in Roswell in HIATUS because of the lack of attendance, for various reasons. We'll look at continuing the dance once we are past COVID-19 or there is more interest.

MYRTLE BEACH SC:
Myrtle Beach Bootscooter Line Dance Camp 2021

Hello Bootscooters - with a heavy heart I write this. After speaking with Jo and my Instructors, we have made the decision to move our Myrtle Beach Dance Camp from 2021 to February 18-19-20, 2022 due the Corona Virus that continues to rage on.  We have line dancers cancelling already as they don't feel it's safe and over 45 that usually attend every year have opted out this year due to the Pandemic. Jamie Marshall canceled her March Ft Wayne Showdown and moved it to 2022 and then the CDC says EVEN after you get the Vaccine, you will still have to wear a mask as they are not 100% sure you won't catch the virus. How crazy is that?

So, I've contacted the hotel and the venue letting them know about the change and you can cancel your reservations at any time. Tell them you want a full refund due to the uncertainty of the Corona Virus. We will move all registrations to 2022. Again, I am sorry to have to do this as we're barely hanging on here and really needed to get back out there and get to work to bring some working capital back into the charity. But, it is what it is.

Be safe, use your Lysol often and I hope to see you on the dance floor real soon.

Scooter Lee and Jo Thompson Szymanski - Founders
