I’ll start of this news letter with Block Buster (not the video store, but big and important)  News!

The Coop will be moving from its home of more than 30 years. The ever-present pressure of rent increases has driven us to a frenzied search and finally a move to a new location. This new location won’t be ready until the first of October, so we will be dancing at an interim location for 7 weeks.

So here is our schedule:

August 3,10 dance at Throop (the usual place).

August 17,24,31, Sept 7,14,21,28:  The Altadena Community Church. 943 Altadena Drive. The church is almost on the corner of Lake and Altadena (next to a gas station).. The parking for dancing is in the back.  The building is airconditioned so no fear of dancing on a sweltering summer night.

October 5 to forever (or for however long forever lasts): The Old North Church ,  191w  West Sierra Madre Blvd, Sierra Madre. The church is on the north side of the street. Parking is in the rear and again our new digs are air-conditioned.

Now for the stuff you have learned to expect.

For August, in the intro session (7:30-8:00)  Leslie Halberg will teach Le Laride’ (Brittany) and Pat Cross will teach Pokemon Ondo (Japan).

For the intermediate session (8:00-8:30) Leslie Halberg will teach Dobrudjansk Reka ( Bulgaria). Then we’ll have a lovely snack break, followed by an evening of feverishly frivolous frolicking dancing.

For those who like to plan ahead, September teaching will be Hora Mare Vranceneasca  and  Ha Meamtezet    More about them later.
