The Legend of the Lost Year

Jason Niesz DJs Tuesday!

Some of you may have heard – certainly not from us – a vicious rumor that this year is our ten year anniversary at Josephine Butler Parks Center. Ok, so maybe you heard it from us, but as with most errors in basic math, we have good reason.

We leave all serious numbers-heavy decisions in Bobby's capable hands. Unfortunately his degree in English Literature didn't help much when jet lag left him incapable of determining what year it was. Nor does it help that Curtis was lost for six weeks exploring the fabled fifth floor at Josephine Butler Parks Center in search of a lost city of gold. This explains why our archivist was running off the Mayan calendar. Thankfully, Jeff's background in music allowed him to count accurately and determine our actual ten year anniversary is next year.

As long as our team doesn't get stuck in El Dorado within the next 300 days or so, we'll be ready to celebrate ten years properly when it comes around for real. Tuesday, we'll celebrate the usual way with lessons starting at 8 p.m. and the dance at 9 p.m. See you there! (Unless YOU find El Dorado. In which case, you should probably just stay there and start your own dance.)

Coming up:

Next Beginner Class: 8-Count w. David & Chelsea, Begins mar 17th

Next Inter/Adv Class: Tranky Do's and Dont's w. Jason & Caroline, Begins Mar 17th.

Next Glen Echo dance: TBA soon.
