On Tap Notes – March 2015

Slainte! (cheers!) Tappers,

March is presenting a “pot of gold” of dance opportunites . Without further ado here are the March Notes:

1) This coming Friday night, March 13, is an Irish Ceili at the VFW Hall . Dancing instruction starts at 7:30 and live music and non stop dancing from 8-11pm. There may be a few Claddagh Dancers and Celtic Cardians from around town performing a jig or two around 9pm. Come one, come all to this family friendly evening of celtic music and dance!

2) Monday, March 16 at 6pm some of the Claddagh Dancers will be modeling clothes and performing Irish dance at the Chicos store in the Salem Center. Please spread the word and come see some fun fashion and up beat dancing!

3) St. Patricks Day “jig for a cookie” at Great Harvest is next week too on TUESDAY (St Patricks Day)! I plan to be at the  West Salem Great Harvest at 11:45and the downtown location on Court Street at  12:00pm. Come jig for a cookie with your fellow leprechauns.

4) The Adult library talent show is Friday night April 3 at 7pm. We will be dancing the Broom Dance. If you would like to perform in this dance there is a mandatory rehearsal on Monday night MARCH 30 at 7:30pm at our studio. All ages can participate if they have rehearsed and feel like they know the dance well.Admission is free but everyone watching the show needs a ticket which are available at the Library. Please let me know if you plan to dance in this show.

5) The current Winter/Spring session is over on Monday March 16. Classes will resume on Monday, April 6 at 7:45pm

6)Save the date for our May “On Tap Showcase” on National Tap Dance Day, Monday May 25, 8pm at our studio. All family and friends are invited for a fun evening of dance production and sweets as we celebrate this national holiday together in true tap style!
