***More changes in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesday practices...
There's a rebellion against the usual pizza, so if you would
like to participate in an informal potluck, please do. Bring
food you'd like to eat and some to share. Potluck food does not
need to be homemade or "period". You must take home any dirty
dishes. Some cooking space is available, but please, nothing too
messy and _no_ deep-frying. The telephone will be available for
pizza if you choose not to participate in the potluck. Or, you
can just eat more ice-cream. :) ***
**** Cin's advanced class will begin on the first Wednesday in

Dance practice starts about 7:00pm. We normally wear street
clothes, rather than garb, for practice. Clean, soft-soled shoes
or socks are required. We normally break around 9pm for dinner
and rootbeer floats. Feel free to forward this message to people
who ask about dance practice.
Here's the directions that assume you are coming from the north
for 1st, 3rd, 5th Wednesdays:
Take your favorite route to 85, just south of 87 (Guadalupe).
Take the Blossom hill exit, stay in the left lane.
Turn left at the bottom of the exit ramp. Stay in the left
Turn left at the second light, Snell, just past the Shell gas
Go for many blocks, turn right on Branham, just before the 76
Turn left at the first light, Park Arcadia. Go straight until
Park Arcadia dead-ends into Park Paxton, turn left.
Turn right on Park Essex (I think it's the third right).
Rafael and Elspeth's is the third house is on the right.
Parking is getting a bit tight, you may have to park on Paxton
and walk a block.
76 Park Essex Pl. San Jose CA
Directions from Yahoo!Maps are generally reliable, although from
the north it will take you on the 101/Guadalupe/Capitol route.

This is a beginning level dance practice. No previous experience

Practice starts at 7:30 pm and runs to approximately 9:00 pm. We
then break for root beer floats and snacks. In courtesy to those
who must go to work/school early the next day (including our
hosts), we'd like to try to be prompt starting and stopping. We
suggest street clothes, rather than garb, for practice. Clean,
soft-soled shoes are a bonus.
Because of the warmer weather, practice may be moving to the
