On a not so frosty friday December 29th, 2013 following a fantastic thanksgiving feast, Robyn from Adventures in Dance donned her blue bubble lady and headed for the little town center for the littleton candlelight walk. She and Bill danced out the door and drew enchanted children into the center to get a free copy of Andy’s bubble lady book. She signed books, danced and charmed children waiting for santa to arrive. Thank you Robyn!
With winter winking at me, I mourn the passing of this year’s pumpkin poles. Me and my family had the time of our life working on the Tim Burton tea party from Alice. My young artists spent countless hours in my garage painting faces on the Hatter, Hair and Cheshire Cat. Then I had the privilege of working with Grandpa’s Attic, In-Tea, and the Tayvern to put it all together. All their hard work paid off with a first place for best pumpkin pole. Thank you to everyone, and happy holidays.

With the storms to our backs we made it in under 10 hours and Bill & Robyn rocked the floor and took first with the youth smooth championship.

Bill took 1st, and Robyn did 4th out of 6. Bill and Robyn then took 1 st in the novice rhythm division. Much later that night Craig and Holly Danced in the Professional Rising Star Ballroom,and took 4th.
With the competition complete, the real fun began. The next day we took a trip to the Truman Presidential Library.
Where I met my new best friend, pete, the white house squirrel. I was so enamoured with him I invited him to join me at Adventures in dance. You can now meet him as well when you drop in to dance.
The next day we headed home. Along the way we stopped at the garden of eden in Lucas Kansas. This is one of the 8 wonders of Kansas. We even saw Dinsmore’s mummified remains. Definitely a trip worth repeating. Join us next year!

Sunday morning came all to soon. With a 8am curtain call, we were polishing the floorboards as the sun came up. Each competition heat was danced better than the last, and everyone hit personal bests y the end of the day. Craig took 6th in the championship standard rounds.

Not a cloud was in the sky as dancers gathered at Adventures In Dance to get ready for Western Welcome Week on Saturday Aug. 21st. As the parade ended, we packed up our cars and made our way to the family stage on prince and main.
The show kicked off with a super argentine tango by the dance adventure formation team. We then burned the floor with solos ranging from mambos, salsas & samba’s to swings, jives and cowboy cha cha’s. Fathers & daughters from the youth squad slid across the floor. The Thursday Waltz class took the floor and demonstrated a delightful waltz. Disco reigned as the formation team got down with stayin alive. It was followed by teaching the audience to do the line dance hustle. We kept the audience electrified with the electric slide. We smoothed out the show with some Foxtrots, Waltzes and Viennese waltzes. The stage was no boundary as a lively Quickstep went beyond the bounds into the audience. Everyone had a great time. Many thanks to all the dancers. They include, Craig, Robyn, Janet, Charles, Jeremy, Havilah, Adam, Rebecca, Melvin, Jessica, Aaron, Alley, Keith, Carol, Lyndon & Tatyana. You made the show special.
