Shoe Sliders

Beginning Tuesday, Dec. 1, I will have shoe sliders available at all of my classes. These are the kind that slip

over the toe of your shoe and go around the back of your heel. 

Monthly Theme for November"Good For A Laugh (But you have to listen to the words!)"
FV Make Up ClassWe will make up the class that was cancelled due to smoke on Sunday, Nov. 15th from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Useful ideas

for classes 

during Covid

1. Vinyl / linoleum scraps to put over the concrete for a better dancing surface. Suggested size 6'x8'.

You can get scraps and custom cuts at Home Depot and Lowes. My scrap piece cost $25.00.

Not all stores have scraps but you can call around to find out: Home Depot

2. PVC pipe or swim noodles work well to roll up vinyl pieces.

3. Whatever shoes or dance socks you used for dancing on regular surfaces work well on vinyl.

4. For those times when we have to wear masks, the following inserts give you a little extra

breathing room: Mask Inserts on Amazon

5. Tip from Takako. Wrap painters tape around the toes of your shoes: Link to Tape Tip




Fountain Valley OUTSIDE CLASSES: Our Tuesday night classes are currently being conducted on the Basketball Courts on the South Side of the Fountain Valley Rec Center from 6-8 p.m. 

Session 3: Nov. 10 - Dec. 8

Registration online is open. Link to register is on "Calendar" page. You can also register in person

Newport OUTSIDE CLASSES: On the back patio at the Newport Coast Community Center (If you are coming from the north on the 73 freeway, it is recommended that you exit on MacArthur to avoid paying a toll at the next exit). The back patio has been marked with tape boxes for each individual dancer. There is more than enough space between dancers to be safe. We will have enough room for 20 dancers.

Covid Protocols for ALL outside classes:

Visitors will not be allowed at any of the venues.

Temperatures will be taken before you are allowed into the venue area.

Masks will be required at all times except when everyone is in their marked position to dance and the teacher has given the all clear to remove masks.

If you leave the dance floor for any reason, you must put your mask back on. 

Restrooms inside will be available. 

It is suggested that you bring your own chair to sit in during breaks.

All chairs, except for those of family members who live together, should be placed a minimum   

of six feet apart, and all dancers should maintain a minimum of six feet between themselves and anyone else at ALL times, including break times.

These protocols are for the safety and the peace of mind of all dancers. 

Anyone not abiding by these rules will be asked to leave the class. 

Dancing on Cement

For those of us who might be worried about dancing on a cement surface, we can at least be thankful that we have shoes. Check it out:  For the Joy of Dancing
