Celia Liang will be our featured instructor on Friday, July 8. She will start the evening off at 7:15 by teaching her new dance, "Sweet Fantasy". Celia and her students have chosen five favorite dances that are sure to be played during the evening:
A brief bio of Celia:
"I was born and raised on a big farm on a tropical island in the Philippines. I came to America in 1979. I always loved cowboy films growing up and was very much looking forward to finally seeing the "Cowboys" when I arrived in America. It was very disappointing to find out they no longer ride horses, or wear cowboy outfits :). (That's how ignorant I was about America back then). Fast forward a year, and a cousin of mine took me to the Saddle Rack for my first country western dancing experience. Much to my delight and excitement, "There's the Cowboys!" I was fine to settle for Mechanical Bulls & Dancing Cowboys :). Needless to say, I was hooked on Country Western music and dancing since then. I did not know my left from my right foot (and sometimes I still forget :), and I never thought I'd learn to Line Dance, much less end up teaching it. Then, "D.J." Van came into my life in 1990 and patiently taught me how to dance. We'll, I finally started learning how to dance, and we ended up married a little over a year later. (What do you know, I married a "Cowboy"! ... the Chinese one :). We've danced together since then. I got my first job at Club Rodeo as a CW Dance Instructor, and started teaching at various clubs and private events since then. My husband D.J. Van & I love the part we play in trying to keep Country Western Dance & Music fun, exciting and entertaining. Currently, our Home place to dance is the "Sunnyvale Moose Lodge". There, I teach Line classes every Thursday, Couple Dances on the 1st Mondays of the Month (and will soon add every 3rd Tuesday of the month also). Van & I have the most fun during our "Open Dancing Night" at Moose Lodge every 1st, 3rd & 5th Fridays of the month. (I normally teach an easy Line Dance as part of the event). Last year was the 1st time I was asked to teach at B&B's "Featured Dance Instructor" event. I am so thankful to B&B for that opportunity, and for inviting me back this year to be the Featured Dance Instructor. I feel so humbled and honored for this wonderful opportunity. This inspired me to choreograph my first Line Dance "Sweet Fantasy", which I will be teaching at this upcoming event. We hope to see all of you there & I truly hope you'll enjoy my dance. The Dance Sheet is available at my website: www.DanceOnCelia.com (click on the title of the dance)."
As usual, students of our featured instructors are admitted at the discount price of $8, and those attending a club dance for the first time are given a free pass good for a future dance.
Our new dance theme, "Classics & Favorites Night", will be twice a month now: 2nd and 4th Fridays!. Although we play Classic dances every week, on Classics & Favorites Night we guarantee that a Classic dance will be played at least every-other dance. So, come out and see for yourself. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised to see how many of your favorite dances will be played! Make sure you sign on the play list for *your* favorite classic dance.

As most club members already know, during your birthday month you get one free pass to come to a dance. But now you will also receive a free "Name Your Dance Card" to be used at any dance and at any time. Remember your free dance "Birthday Pass" is only good during the month of your birthday, but the "Name Your Dance Card" can be used anytime.
