“Exploring the art of partner dance”
September 2012 Newsletter
Dear Mary,

I hope everything is going well with you.

As usual,there are a few changes to my schedule this month. New classes will be opening soon, and others are coming to a conclusion. Please take the time to read the articles. If you have any ideas or advice, please do not hesitate to e-mail me.

Also, I would like to apologize about my website. It is still under construction. Hopefully it will be up and running soon, but if you need to get information about classes or events, just give me a call or e-mail me. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you for your support.

PS: I would appreciate it very much if you could help me advertise my new classes, by simply forwarding this information to your friends.

Edwin’s Classes & Events

As a performing artist, I collaborate with multiple groups and organizations, therefore I travel a lot and regularly visit multiple cities (DC, Richmond, Charlottesville, Roanoke, etc). However I now consider Harrisonburg as my home base, and for that reason most of my current activities are conducted there. Nonetheless, due to the nature of my job, my schedule tends to fluctuate often, and that is why I like to send out these newsletters to my students, so everyone is aware of my monthly activities.

During the month of September, I will be participating in multiple events and dance camps, so my schedule will be more unusual than normal. There are a few changes, so please read the articles about classes.

“No Saturday classes in Charlottesville this month”
(However I will offer a few workshops. See below for details)

Harrisonburg    =   Tuesdays – Fridays.
Charlottesville  =   Sundays – Mondays.
If you are interested in organizing beginner, intermediate or advanced classes in your area and are looking for a professional dance instructor to teach your classes, let me know. If my schedule permits, I would be happy to help.(ezdance42@gmail.com)
