There is no smoking within 100 feet of the building.

Everyone is asked every Friday for requests so come on out and get your requests on the list.
Check-out our previous play lists:
If you would like to order a set (or two or three) of the sliders that many of us are putting on our sneakers, please contact: Connie Sutcliffe, 510.888.9777; firstname.lastname@example.org or search for Dance Sliders on ebay. These cover the toe of your shoe and slip securely around the heel of your shoe to hold them in place. They are very durable.
The shoe sliders have felt on the sole which works very well on most dance floors BUT they do not work very well on carpet or tacky floors. HOWEVER, I have found a fix.
I took my sliders to Center Shoe Repair and he sewed a leather patch onto the sole of each slider. Wore them line dance Sunday where I have to dance most of the time on a carpeted stage and they worked perfectly. He charge $9.00 per slider; $18 for the set.
