Hello Boot scooters - 

Here it is the end of March - my goodness where is the time going?  BUT, we're going to be dancing again May 14th-15th and I hope some of you can join us. NO, it's not a Dancing For The Dream Dance Camp, it's a Dreaming & Dancing Fundraiser for Dancing For The Dream Dance Camps.

We had a rough 2020 and we were hoping for a better 2021 but it seems many of our venues are still Orange and Red so we've had to cancel Four Dance Camps already.

We are thrilled that Vickie Normile (the host) Terry Pournelle, Frances Beasely, Susan Duncan, Helen Walker and Joyce Gossard have decided to host this fundraiser of social dancing on Friday Night, lessons on Saturday in 2 rooms and a social dance on Saturday night where I'll be singing some of your favorites. We have attached the flyer so you can see the host hotel, the venue, the price and contact information.

It will make a huge difference for our charity to keep operating as we've been unable to secure any loans in this Covid Era. They consider us social and nonessential. They are allowing 75 to attend so don't be left out if you want to line dance the weekend away. 

Remember - 

Date: May 14-15, 2021 
Venue: Kershaw County Rec Center - Camden, SC
Contact: Vickie Normile (803) 414-9523

See you on the dance floor soon.
