The sun is shining, the birds are singing, the weather is beautiful. Doesn't it just make you feel like dancing. Speaking of birds, this is also the time of year when our "snowbird" friends will be heading home. I wish you a safe trip and look forward to your return.

Ladies you did it again, turned the dance floor into a beautiful "sea of red", at our annual Lady in Red dance. Lots of smiling faces and great music made it a wonderful evening. Check out your website and you'll see what I mean. Just click on the photos tab.

We've started the year off with lots of great dancing and there is more to come as we have some great special events planned for this year. Besides our Birthday Dances, on March 17th, we're celebrating St. Patrick's Day by having special decorations and inviting you to wear Green. I wonder if we can outdo the Lady in Red Dance. Sure would be fun to see. Then on April 21st, it's our bi-annual country dance. This is always a laidback, toe-tappin' night, but this year we're inviting you to see how much BLING you can wear with your jeans. Any Rhinestone Cowboys out there? In May, we've got a new theme planned for you.We're having a Garden Party. No, Ricky Nelson, won't be there. Just lots of flowery decor and happy spring-time music. There's still more special events on the drawing board and I will be sure to tell you all about them when the time comes.

I have some exciting news, well, for me anyways. Team Thriller was such a success last year that Citrus County Blessings is asking if we would perform at their fundraiser in October. I have told them, if we can get enough dancers, we would be glad to do so. So, consider this a "casting call." Butch is planning a medley of Halloween music that will accommodate a group of dancers, as well as, solos. If you want to participate, or want to learn more about it, come to the hall at 6:15 on March 17th where Butch will tell us all about his ideas. Just ask any Team Thriller member, and I'm sure they will tell you how much fun and rewarding it was to be a part of the event.

In closing, I'd like to thank those of you who made the effort to welcome those "first-timers" who came to check
us out from the Citrus Hills Ballroom dance class. All of us started out as "beginners" and it was nice to see how you made them feel comfortable and have a good time. When they come back, as well as, any who decide to check us out, let's be sure to prove to them that: Dancing Lifts the Spirit!
