To enter the Gowen Field installation, each driver must present a valid drivers license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance. The gate guard will issue the driver of the vehicle a pass to enter the base facility.

Enter Gowen Field off of Gowen Rd. Turn Left on Farman St. Turn left on Ellsworth. Look for Bldg. 713 on the right. Turn into driveway- Open Air Pavillion.

Be at the National Guard base by 3:15 this Saturday. Come early enough to check in. They should direct you to the right area where we'll be performing for Diversity Days. This is a quick 20 minute show with no costume changes. Come in costume and bring your clogging shoes. In the past, there has been food- so we might be invited to eat again this year.

Give it a try

I figured out that I'm better at blogging than website managing. I still have the website, and I'm going to try to keep it updated, but I wanted to give a blog a try.

The coolest part of blogging is keeping it fresh. Got a great photo, shoot me an e-mail. I am looking for some action shots. The thing I like most is having the ability to keep things updated and posting photos.

But I rarely take pictures at shows. I'm too busy dancing or directing. I need you help! If you've got pictures, please please share!!

And, if you're not familiar with blogging, at the bottom of each post you can leave a comment. This is a great way to quickly communicate with the rest of the studio and me. Anything you don't want the rest of the world to read you should still e-mail. Yes, my regular e-mail address is the one you should use. Don't use the e-mail on the profile, I only check it every other week.

And now, for the rest of the story.

So far I don't have any shows for July. I know. Weird. I visited the Meridian Farmers Market yesterday and found that they don't have an area for dancing or an audience. They have moved the whole venue to a little side street. It's narrow. There was a vocalist with a guitar, but that's about all they can handle this year. As things stand, it doesn't look like we'll be there.

Here's what's on the schedule for August:

August 1, Saturday, Army National Guard, plan to be at the base by 3:00, our show starts at 3:30. This show will be for the Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Championship and Adult teams. Wear only one costume for the whole show. I must have the full name and birthdate- including year- from all who will be on base for this show. Dancers, parents, siblings, everyone, and I have to have this by July 23. Please e-mail me!

August 4, Tuesday – Born To Succeed – Be there by 9:45 AM, show is 10:00-10:45. All classes invited to attend. 8211 Ustick Rd. (corner of Milwaukee and Ustick Rd.)
