ROUND DANCE CUERS:
MILO & CINDA MOLITORIS
April 13, 2020
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENTS
On March 11th, I notified everyone that our Wednesday night square dance classes would be canceled until further notice. At that time I told you that I would keep you informed as to when we would start dancing again. Back then, on March 11th, we thought we might have a chance to start dancing again on April 22nd. Of course that is not going to happen.
Obviously, we are all still at risk due to the Coronavirus. Bay Laurel Elementary School is closed for the rest of the school year. So, there will be no classes for the balance of the 2019-2020 year and no dances or formal club activities till the end of June. We will make a decision on summer dances and parties and the start of 2020-2021 classes when appropriate.
Be safe, and stay well!
Joni & Mark Simon, Presidents
At our monthly dances, we feature Milo Molitoris cueing Rounds 7:00 - 8:00 PM and 2 rounds between each Square Dance Tip. Milo is one of the most respected cuers and choreographers in Southern California. His smooth delivery and great music choices guarantee an evening of excellent dancing.
CLUB INSTRUCTOR/CALLER - PAUL WATERS
Classes are cancelled for the balance of this year AND our May & June Club Dances are canceled.
Paul, a third generation Californian, first became interested in square dancing during his senior year in high school when he took a beginners class with the Conejo Swingers, a teen club in Thousand Oaks. Although the class started in February 1972, a scant ten month’s later he decided to try his hand (voice?) at calling, and started a calling class the following December.
Dancing has always been an important part of his life. Over the years this has included participation in international folk dancing, square dancing, round dancing, international competitive ballroom dancing, clogging, contra and country western. Fred Astaire would be impressed.
Presently he teaches classes for the Tinseltown Squares of Los Angeles, as well as calling for dance engagements as far away as Cleveland, Ohio, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and Dijon, France (Love their mustard).
Paul’s decision to join the Trail Dusters “family” is a wonderful reunion. Paul actually called for the Trail Dusters some 20 years ago. We welcome him back with open arms and are thrilled that he will be our caller and teacher.
