THIS WEEKEND

The NEXT Atlanta Country Nights is THIS Saturday night, Jan 23rd at Atlanta Dance in Marietta.
If you've not been to the ALL NEW Atlanta Dance yet, a great chance to check it out. REDONE dance floor, super nice, great new lighting, new sound system (perfect, not too loud, but loud enough), ALL NEW Snack bar,,, come set up your party for you and your friends. A BIGGER dance floor, so more room for all. Distanced seating. And, since we're still dealing with Covid, we still provide hand sanitizer and the venue is regular FOGGED for cleaning, from floor to ceiling, so we feel about as safe as any dance venue around. 
Atlanta Dance is located a 2211 Roswell Road, just 2 miles EAST of the Marietta Loop off 75. Just go east when you exit the loop. Look for the Taco Bell on the left, then turn into the Marshall's shopping center. There is a Kroger and a liquor store across the street if you want to pick up something. A Chic-Fil-A as well before you get there. 

 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 4 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

UPCOMING Events:
UDPDATE on our new FORMAT at Ballroom Impact. This past Sat night, we tried a different format so most dancers get to dance to most songs. We had a LINE DANCE song every OTHER song. So, a line dance song, then a two-step, a line dance song, then a west coast swing, etc, etc. This seemed to go over well with all dancers. To keep all dancing but also to give everyone a break as well. We'll do this at ALL Ballroom Impact dances going forward. Now for our Atlanta Dance dances. We'll have a similar format but a line dance every 3rd or 4th song since Atlanta Dance is know more by couple dancers. We'll still tweak this based on the crowd for the night but feel this is prob a great format to keep everyone dancing often but not to tire out anyone as well. 

ALSO - Coming Saturday, Feb 27th. Winter Country Workshop at Atlanta Dance. Starting at noon and lasting thru 6:30,, couple lessons all day. We'll have a line dance workshop at 5pm IF there is enough line dancers wanting it. $75 per person for the all-day couple lessons, this includes the dance that night. If you are interested in the line dance lessons ONLY, please RSVP to info@georgia-country.com. We HAVE to have at least 20-line dancers in order to have these lessons. Once we have 20 people wanting line dance lessons, each of these will be emailed an invoice (via PayPal) for their admissions. To reserve your DAY PASS, go to the link above for Atlanta Country Nights.

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 this 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
