Something to sayHave something you'd like to see in the AIFD newsletter? Do you have an upcoming event you'd like to announce, a poem you'd like to share, a dance experience you think other dancers would enjoy? Feel free to submit it to the AIFD newsletter and we'll make it fit.

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

An introduction to using Zoom.

Updated PC-performance tips.

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.

A Zoom limerick:
"Push the furniture out to the wall
Don't trip on the dog or you'll fall
Dancing by Zoom
In your own living room
Is better than nothing at all"
