CLUB NEWS AND HAPPENINGS
Volunteer Coordinator Wanted!
With over 650 members and growing activities we are looking to create a central position for all our volunteer searches.
We envision one point of contact that coordinates all other volunteer needs. This is successfully done at the Saturday school and by our current fest coordinator Amy Elizabeth. We would like to grow and build this out to a centralized volunteer database so we can tap into the expertise of our talented membership. This member needs to be able to use email, internet applications and some social media, and the ability to work independently. And it can be also be a group of people or a committee.
If you are interested please contact: Vorstand@germanclub.org
Ballroom Dancing Lessons at the BSV
Do you enjoy going to events that have dancing? Want to dance at the next event? Would you like to learn how to dance or improve your skills?
Over the years, members have asked me when I will offer lessons again, but I have not received enough commitments in the past to run classes.
I do enjoy ballroom dancing and like to help others to enjoy it too. I started 30 years ago in Germany with International style and transitioned into American style 25 years ago when I came to the USA. I have taught part time dancing for 20 years and have done many performances and even competed a few times.
I would offer dance lessons again but I would like to know who is interested and what the preferences are, including: time of year/season, day of week, time, group or private lessons, and what type of dance.
