Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!

Last week's puppy pic (Pucci in her raincoat) was quite popular! I'm going to milk that trend... 

Thanks for all the responses to my last 101. I LOVE hearing your suggestions. See, here's the thing: dance 101 is in service to YOU. We may be your teachers in the classroom, but when it comes to the schedule, our roles flip.  We learn from you.

For example, from you I've learned:  a) we need more beginner classes and b) there are a lot of people in the area who would love to dance but are intimidated. I've also been told that mid day classes 2-4pm are convenient for many who's mornings are busy (I never would have guessed this!).

Daylight Savings Time. The three words I love to hear more than "It's Taco Tuesday." This Sunday we get to spring forward an hour and while we "lose" an hour of sleep, I can't wait to gain the extra hours of daylight... As a kid I have fond memories of playing outside until 9pm, except that one Summer when I tripped while wearing roller skates and chipped my front tooth... totally not cool. But now as an adult I look forward to late nights on patios sipping cold adult beverages... yea ok, I did that last night, BUT that's not the point! The point is, I am reminding you to not be an hour late to your class this Sunday. You're welcome :-)

(ALPHARETTA) Pucci's new raincoat spells disaster

Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!

Thought I'd kick off this 101 with a cute puppy pic awwwww, right? So. Stinking. Cute! Well, um..... nightmare.  I spotted this nifty puppy raincoat when I took Coqui for grooming (her infamous Dreaded Day of Beauty) last week.  But, alas.. what may seem to be a great idea... often creates a brand new problem.  My effort to keep everyone dry on our walk last night was such a juggling act of leashes, freaked out pups (refusing to cooperate - much less move), clumsy rain boots, umbrella, poop bag.. juggle juggle juggle. If I weren't giggling the entire time at my efforts to coax two little dog statues into moving - and if I could have added my phone to the juggle - I would have filmed a very funny video (that I'm sure would have gone viral).
