November Happenings
Dear Roger,         

November is Two Step Month at SNC

Wednesday lessons:   November 3,  10, 17, 24

Friday dance:  November 5

 Jeff Sanchez

While the photo at the left shows his casual and laid-back personality,   Jeff Sanchez can be extremely technical in his teaching of the Two Step.   Jeff will have the leads positioning their follows perfectly  for transitioning from one move to another.   Follows, you'll just love it!

Besides dancing, Jeff enjoys archery and  playing with his two dogs, Tango and Jovie.     We also hear  his favorite student is Maren Oslac!

Come join us to learn or improve on this core country dance.

Welcome Alisa Winkler to SNC for West Coast Swing on Friday, November 19

Alisa is brand new to the Swing 'n' Country Instructor List

 Alisa Winkler

Alisa started as a  country dancer over 13 years ago then eventually  moved to the West Coast  Swing circuit.   She is just one of the very few dancers who have found a high level of success in both worlds.  Alisa has recently  found her true love in teaching.  Her goal is to produce dancers with a solid foundation and at the same time to  have fun in the process.
Let's give Alisa a big welcome to Swing 'n' Country.

See Alisa dance on You Tube.

Did You Know? 

clip art dance

"Dance has existed since the beginning of humankind. Before verbal or written communication existed, humans used movement to communicate and to help them comprehend, shape, and make meaning of their world. Moving rhythmically is innate.  Movement as a form of self-expression is intrinsic to our existence as human beings".  

Come express yourself through dance at Swing 'n' Country!
