the friendliest place around to dance and socialize
GREAT BIG IMPORTANT NEWS!! We are switching to FRIDAY DANCES starting Oct.12, 7:30-10PM.
NO LESSON ON Friday 10/12 BUT THE DANCE WILL START AT 6:30!! Otherwise Paulette will give free lessons from 6:30-7:30.
We dance in the large upstairs space, with a great wood floor, at the VFW, 900 N. Main in Hendersonville. Across from the high school and around the corner from Pop's Diner.
Paulette Cole teaches free classes for us before the dance from 6:30-7:30.
Regular dance at 7:30-10 with music by DJ Gary Bills.
Do you know that our resident dance instructor, PAULETTE COLE, also teaches private classes and offers some of best rates in the area. Ask about a package of 4 for a discounted rate. She has quite a resume as a teacher and you'll acquire the skills you want a lot faster with a one on one (or with your partner) than in group classes. You also have the advantage of checking out her teaching style by taking the free group lessons that she offers before our regular dances. A number of the current members are currently students or have taken private lessons with her and will serve as references. Just ask us!
Annual membership of $15 begins in January. As a member you pay $5 per dance instead of non-member $7. Membership will pay for itself in 8 dances so it might be worth it to you to join.
Thank you for all who have recently joined the club as well as our regular faithful members. All of you have brought up attendance and are helping keep the club going.
Check frequently for updates and changes to the proposed schedule.
Regarding the lesson, Paulette reviews the basic steps with an emphasis on technique then she moves us into a sequence of steps which we repeat until we have a little routine. There is always time for questions and Paulette will patiently repeat the move until we get it right. One of the great benefits to having Paulette stay and dance with us is that she will continue to help dancers with steps if they ask her.
Also... don't be afraid to ask her out on the floor. She can be either follower or leader!
If you are a stranger to dance or otherwise curious about HBDC then we invite you to drop by on a Saturday night. If you are "just looking" and not dancing you won't pay the $7 admission. Singles, couples, dancers and beginners (we all were once!) are welcomedE
