I don't have everyone's email so please share this with your dancing friends.  Invite all line dancers to join us.  We are having a blast.  We are starting a "Georgia Line Dancers" FB page where we will post information regarding the socials.  Please feel free to post your classes there!

NOTE****We will start in January 2020 having one on a Saturday.  Time will probably be 11a-3p (or 12 -4) (if we can get enough people committed….. as our rent is a lot higher on a Saturday!)

Thanks to all of you who have participated in our GA Line Dance Socials for October and November.  Thanks also for the nice compliments from many of you.  Let us know if you have any suggestions to make it better. Remember the socials are sort of "a challenge" to see how many dances we can do in four hours.    So with that being said, we only do turbo teaches (if needed) but are always willing to share and teach our newer easy dances with the crowd. 

We will always aim to let you know what the play list will be in advance so you have the opportunity to "brush up" if needed before you come to the social.

Attached is the play list for the dances we have done in the last two months.  I think there are almost 50!  We have gotten to almost all of them!  I burn more than 12,000 steps at these events!  Please send your requests as soon as you can for the one in December.

Our December social will be a Christmas party (Dec. 11) and we will do some of the dances to Christmas music.  If you want a particular Christmas song played please let us know and we will find a line dance for it!

Bring your own personal lunch or something to share.  Our meals are getting better with each one!

Hope to see you and a lot of your line dance group at the next social on December 11.

Debra, Jim & Doug

If you know of any venue in the Atlanta area, that either has a large enough dance floor OR an all wood floor that can be used for dancing, do contact us on Facebook.

SUBJECT:  STACY HAS UPDATED THE "DANCE WHERE" LINK ON THE SITE:

PLEASE checks the classes and clubs that are listed in the area where you live and let Stacy know by filling out the little form whether there should be changes, deletions, or corrections.  Please really use this link when they travel or move and she can only keep it correct and current with everyone's help.  Just click on the link, go to your city/state/country and see if the listings are correct or if you are in a class that isn't listed.  Perhaps your instructor doesn't get the newsletter (and you need to tell them to get it by sending me an email to tkandr@aol.comand I'll add them.  LOL) or times and days have changed.  It will only take a second to check and Stacy and I would REALLY appreciate it.  Be sure and do it through the form, though, because that goes directly to her.  Thanks a bunch.

Something to consider…. 
BRING IT IN FROM THE COLD,,,

Sure, it can be convenient to keep frequently used items in the car instead of repeatedly dragging them in and out of the house. But not everything can withstand winter's freezing temperatures. Here are some things that shouldn't be left in your car in winter (and why):

ELECTRONICS

Freezing temperatures can damage laptop computers, tablets and cell phones. Lithium-ion batteries that stop working in the cold will usually perk back up when they've been warmed, but repeated exposure to extreme temperatures can reduce their ability to hold a charge. And because moving a computer to a warm location can cause internal condensation that may damage it if you use it right away, let it warm up for a few minutes before turning it on.

10 THINGS YOU SHOULD KEEP IN YOUR CAR'S EMERGENCY KIT

These items can help you deal with winter's unique challenges when you're on the road.

  • Sturdy ice scraper
  • Snow shovel
  • Warm blankets
  • Rock salt, sand or kitty litter
  • Flashlight
  • Portable phone charger
  • Jumper cables
  • Snacks
  • First -aid kit
  • Hazard triangles or LED flashers

BEVERAGES

If it's below freezing outside and you leave canned or bottled drinks in your car, you may come back to a big mess. The liquids will expand when they freeze, and the cans or bottles could explode.

WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID

Most windshield washer fluids contain chemicals that prevent them from freezing. But some brands of bug wash (and homemade vinegar-and-water mixes) can freeze if the temperature drops low enough. If the fluid freezes, it will expand and could crack your washer fluid reservoir. So, before it gets too cold outside, make sure you're using fluid that can withstand the chill without freezing.

MEDICATIONS

Whether prescription or over-the-counter, some drugs can be affected by extreme cold. Freezing can reduce their potency, cause ingredients to physically separate or even change the molecular form of the medication. When in doubt, check the label for storage information and talk to your pharmacist about medications that may have been exposed to cold temperatures.

MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS

Freezing temperatures can make an instrument contract, which can cause it to go out of tune. In some cases-for example, if the instrument is made of wood-cold, dry air can cause it to crack. When an instrument has been left in a cold car, warm it up gradually.

Certification:
Line Dance Instructor Certification Training - Welcome to the Home of the International Consortium of Line Dance Instructors (ICLDI)!!!! 

We are an organization that offers dance teachers an opportunity to complete their dance instructor certification throughout the USA. We are administered by an Executive Council (EC) that is comprised of the senior officials selected to serve (see EC names below). The EC establishes policy guidance and regulations governing the operation of the organization.

Our premier certification offering is referred to as the Accelerated Instructor Certification Program (AICP) and contains the following:

Two-day training program of 12 hours that awards participants a Level 1 certification designation;
One-day six (6) hour training session that awards attendees a Level 2 re-certification;
Both training sessions require the participants to pass an examination successfully;
All course participants are required to have and maintain certification in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR).
The AICP includes professional training for dance instructor certification in Odenton, MD and focuses on the fields of business development, legal aspects of dance instruction, physical therapy, injury prevention, teaching techniques, dance appreciation and music theory.

We offer a diverse range of instructor training to meet the cultural, entertainment, and recreational interests of our customers across the US. Whether you are looking to meet new dance instructors and just get away from your daily instruction duties, participation in the AICP sponsored by The International Consortium of Line Dance Instructors can help.

Using the "Approved" terminology.…  Calling steps such a "Shuffle right with a rock back" or  "Vine with a heal jack" are no longer approved terms by the NTA.  They have published a book of what you must say now when teaching your classes to be accredited.

Subject: NTA Terminology Book and Study Guide Now Available
From: Debra Cleckler – debb@cleckler.com

NTA has just released our new Terminology Booklet and Study Guide.  It is loaded with updated and officially "approved" line dance terms along with most everything you need to prepare for Dance Fundamentals accreditation testing.

Point vs Touch – what is the difference?  Choreographers get this one confused all the time!
Touch is under the center (body) beside the weighted foot, using the ball of the foot with a bent leg.
Point is with a straight leg (toes pointed) and placed away the weighted foot.  Such as; to place pointed toes either forward, across, to the side or to the back.

I see many choreographers checking their step sheets!
