To dance, or not to dance?

Tony Vergara DJ's Tuesday at the Jam Cellar!

To dance, or not to dance? That is the question. We all go through it; you're not alone. Sometimes you're gobbled by the monsters of work or scholastic studies. Sometimes you're plateauing or just not feeling it. Sometimes it's below freezing with a wind chill of -12 and you want to curl up and read a book. We're not saying you'll be tempted to do that on Tuesday when the weather magicians predict a polar vortex will descend upon the district; we're just saying the only reason you shouldn't dance is because you have a cold, not because, baby, it's cold outside.

We'd like to apologize for some of the content of last week's email. It's not our intention to use humor to demean or denigrate and we see that we crossed a line this week. One of the goals of the Jam Cellar is to build an open and welcoming community which includes being open and receptive to criticism. We realize that what we said in our email was offensive and we apologize that we didn't recognize that fact during the writing and editing process. We will take more care creating future content, and continue to strive to provide a community that is welcoming to everyone. Thank you again for your criticism and for helping us work toward that goal.

Coming up:

Next Beginner Class: 8-count Lindy Hop w. Jeff & Caroline, Begins Dec 2nd

Next Inter/Adv Class: Holiday Grabbag w. Bobby & Kate, Begins Dec 2nd.

Next Glen Echo dance: 2015.
