WHEN .. NEW TIMES!!
BLUES DANCE LESSON 8PM-9PM
(included in cover)
Special Guest Instructor Shea Hanson (Sacramento) with Jeremy Carberry
More About the Instructor:
Shea Hanson has been crazy about social dancing since she was fifteen years old. She started with Lindy Hop, but when she made it to college, she fell in love with dancing the Blues. San Luis Obispo is where she began to teach and DJ, and now she teaches Blues, Fusion, and Lindy Hop in the greater Sacramento area. You will never meet a more passionate Blues dancer, and this shows greatly through the care she puts both into her lessons and her DJ sets. She loves the challenge of teaching intermediate students, but she finds her real calling in watching beginners grow into dancers with confidence and personality. Her exciting music and style will have you itching for more and more Blues.

CODE OF CONDUCT
A Steal Dance is when special* dancer(s) are invited to the center of the dance floor and other dancers steal them throughout the selected song. Steal them often and kindly, like when (s)he is coming out of/leading a turn and you can easily grab his/her hand.
*Special at dSB means it is the dancer’s birthmonth, (s)he is moving away, or visiting from out-of-town.
What's the Bow Tie Dance?
The Bow Tie Dance is our tribute to Carl Flores, a SoCal dancer who was a warm and welcoming person known the world over. Carl loved dance, he loved to travel, and he loved to wear bow ties. He left us too soon and in honor of him our first song after the Out-of-towner/Birthmonth Steal Dance invites everyone back on the floor to dance with someone they have NEVER danced with before.It's our Bow Tie Dance - meet new people, make new friends.We miss you Carl!

Animal Shelter Wish List & Donations
dSB Founder and Organizer, Tracy, loves animals. As a volunteer at LA Animal Services from 2009-2015 and currently at the NKLA Adoption Center. She invites you to bring donations for the shelter to any of the monthly dances. Even the smallest item means a lot to the animals, especially your old (but clean) towels and bedding. Here are a few different ways (she'll drop off the items at the shelter for you!) you can help:
1) Bring in your old (but clean) towels/bedding or any other item from LA Animal Services' North Central Shelter's Wish List to any of dSB's monthly dances. Towels/bedding make nice soft surfaces for the animals at the shelter..and we go through A LOT of them (for sanitary reasons, they are often discarded when a new animal occupies the kennel)!
2) Choose Home Dog LA as the Non-Profit you support when making a purchase on Amazon (Smile). .05% of every qualifying purchase completed using Amazon Smile will benefit this life-saving organization that runs the Intervention Program at North Central Shelter. Find out more at http://smile.amazon.com/about and http://www.homedogla.org/
Also, if you’re interested in adopting a pet, please feel free to talk to Tracy about your options (adopt, rescue, foster, etc) at the dance!
