Going to the Show Dance!
Happy to report, there were 2 physical events held this weekend, the first that I know of since March and both did really well. It seems we may be coming to the end of the nightmare of this situation. (yeah!)
During the current condition affecting live events nationwide, many have continued to cancel or postpone until later in the year. Please check the Event Calendar before heading out to attend any event as there can be a change at the last minute.
If any one knows of a cancellation or postponement, please do NOT call, text or message me rather EMAIL the Name, Date, AND City AND State AND new date,  if applicable, to  This is the only way I can stay organized.
We still have a few Online Events listed on the site but you may find some additional ones out there that I am unaware of as not everyone is letting me know with enough time to post.
Please check the site to be sure your favorite event is listed. If not, let me know and I will look into it. It's never too early to post your events. People do plan vacations and other trips surrounding our events so the sooner the better.
