Hello International Dancers,

        Dancing in Kalispell on Saturday night (Sept. 8), from 8 to 10 p.m., at our
        usual venue, the Salvation Army Community Center, 110 Bountiful Drive.
        We celebrated birthdays, including Rose's, we had many goodies to sample.

        This weekend is also the annual Bear Hug contra dance weekend at Rollins,
        on the west shore of Flathead Lake. It usually fills up early, so if you're
        interested, check out the web site and put it on your calendar for next year.

        Next weekend is the annual dance weekend at Hallie's Weather Rock Barn in the
        beautiful Shields River Valley north of Bozeman. In addition to the big Contra
        Dance on Saturday night, this year's program features international dance workshops
        Saturday afternoon and Sunday with Thea Huijgen from the Seattle area. There's
        also an international workshop with Thea in Bozeman on Saturday morning starting
        at 9:30 a.m., focusing on dances for couples. For details, see the schedule
        Thanks to Cecelia for forwarding the info!
