  • Dancing in the Kitchen
    Hello friends! We are living in some crazy times these days. The nature of the pandemic has resulted in a nearly complete cessation of community dancing across the US and world. While I'm sad about this, I'm ready to do what we need to do to keep our friends, family and neighbors safe. We will dance together again! For now, I hope you are all finding ways to dance at home. I know my family has regular dance parties in the kitchen that bring me a lot of joy. 

    Stay safe and don't stop dancing!

  • Rocking and Rolling with the Apex Family Dance in 2020
    The Apex Family Dance is really thriving and I love it! My kids are getting old enough to join in the dances, though they would rather be on stage messing with my mic stand or telling the dancers what to do (hey kid, that's my job!). We are going to keep on doing monthly Family Dances through May, then probably a grown up square dance in the summer and back with Family Dances in September. Stay tuned for more information. Here are the dates for the first part of 2020!

  • Apex Family Dance Revival
    After a bit of a break in 2018 with just a couple dances, we are bringing the Apex Family Dance. We will do a dance every other month through the spring and summer and return to monthly dance in September. It has been so nice to hear that our family dance friends have been asking for the dance to come back more often! I've missed it too. We kicked off 2019 with a great dance in January. We hope to see you at the next one on March 29, 2019.
