Family Reunion

Jason Niesz DJ's Tuesday @ The Cellar!

If your relatives danced, a family reunion would be hard to distinguish from a dance exchange.

Think about it. We travel from far and wide in economical methods to gather in an oversized venue and catch up with people we haven't seen in forever – or have never met at all. The rumpled, yet sage uncle tells stories of yore and and the distant cousin sits in the corner shrouded in more rumors than tattoos. Drama makes it's way to every crevice. There's music and unhealthy gorging of potlucks and adult beverages. We're exhausted by the end. Who knows why, but we are.

The only difference is a productive, calorie-burning activity – and explaining why you're still single to 4 different aunts doesn't count. So thank you, dancing, for making the family reunions of our world something we actually want to attend.

Speaking of such events, we'll see you on Tuesday at 8 p.m. for our regularly scheduled lessons and 9 p.m. for music by Jason Niesz. Can't wait to see how much you've grown, sweetheart!!

Coming up:

Next Beginner Class: Charleston w. David & Caroline, Oct 6th.

Next Inter/Adv Class: Swingout Clinic w. Jeff & Kelly Oct 6th.

Next Glen Echo dance: Craig Gildner Big band, Oct 24th.
