Memorial for Frances Danis
Frances Danis As most of you know, our dear friend Frances Danis recently passed away. A virtual memorial will be held for Frances on Sunday, August 23, at 1:00 pm. If you would like to attend the memorial, please email Joane Rylander at and we will send you the invitation.


John Bloom of HIFD has posted some good information on how to help better your virtual dance experience.

Also, the dance leaders would like to provide you with some ideas on how to have an easier time following us during our virtual dance sessions. For dances that move around a lot, try taking smaller steps and doing quick little pivots in place to face your screen again. Also, putting up a mirror opposite your monitor screen can assist you in viewing the dance leader while your back is to the screen.
