Letter from the PresidentLetter from the President
Dear USA Dance members, guests and everyone interested in the wonderful world of Dance:
I am relatively new (about 2 years) to the world of Ballroom Dance. Learning to dance is (and has been for me) challenging to say the least – all those lessons, hours of practice along with being intimidated by those graceful 'silver/gold level' couples seemingly floating around the dance floor at the USA Dances and other dance venues. Wow!!!!
I continually reminded myself that every dancer started with a 'day one' and now for me (after seemingly many 'day ones') two years later, dancing has become a very fulfilling and wonderful addiction -- to say the least!
I see several major challenges within the Berkshire dance community – visibility, dance opportunity and recruiting new dancers.
It is my goal as the 2013 President of the Berkshire Ballroom Chapter 3054 of USA Dance, Inc. to initiate and implement the foundational components necessary to build the Berkshire Ballroom dance community into a very visible and desirable destination entertainment entity.
The two necessary major components include –1.) a structure for reaching out and interacting in a coordinated manner with all the dance groups, dance instructors and individual dancers in an effort to continually build new dance interest by generating combined learning and dancing opportunities to a wider menu of potential participants and 2.) developing & implementing a comprehensive dance event marketing campaign which results in the definitive exposure of those opportunities to the entire dance community within a 75+ mile radius of the Berkshires.
Please attend one of our monthly (3rd Saturday) dances at the Masonic Hall at 116 South St. in Pittsfield and experience the sociality and fun.
Please contact me should you wish to be included on our e-mail newsletter and event notification list.
Dancing makes the body happy and the soul too!!
