***Changes in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Wednesday practices...
If you would like to participate in the informal and VOLUNTARY
potluck, please do. If you do not want to bring food, please
come to dance anyway. If you would like to just have pizza, the
telephone will be available for pizza orders 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
May. **** 
1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesdays in San Jose 

The beginner’s dance class will start at 7pm and go to 7:45.
One dance will be taught every week for 4-6 weeks. A new dance
will be choosen tonight! Show up on time to vote. Beginners are
welcome to stay through the usual class from 7:45 to 9pm. The
intermediate section of the class will feature Galliard
variations. If you are interested in more beginner classes,
please read down to the bottom of this mail for details about
the Darkwood Dance class on 1st, 3rd, and 5th Thursdays in
Morgan Hill.

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.
