Summer Dance Sampler

Summer Dance Sampler offered on Zoom by the Dragon’s Egg!

Every summer, we have been offering a “Dance Sampler” in which there is a different style of class each week. This year I have put it on the zoom platform, and I hope you will be able to join us for some, or all, of these exciting classes!

The classes will be on Wednesdays at 5 pm, beginning June 1, and will last about an hour. A couple more classes may be added.
Each class stands on its own, so must be individually registered. 
I am the “host”.

Each class is a mere $10. You may pay via my PayPal account, or send a cheque to me, identifying in the subject area for which class you are paying. If you pay by PayPal, I ask that you wait to pay until the day before or of the class so that I don’t get the payments mixed up. I then pay the teachers from the Dragon’s Egg account, based on how many students are present. I shall paste all that payment information at the end of this letter.

I hope to see you soon, dancing and moving with energy and ebullience and peace!
