About Linda Bloyer

Hi Fellow Country Dancers!

I've been dancing in the DC/Baltimore/So. MD area since late 1992. Until they changed format in 2002, I danced most of the time at Spurs in Waldorf. I taught 2 Step & West Coast Swing there the last couple of years. I also danced at Cherry Hill for a long time on Wednesdays, Blackie's, and a few other places occasionally. Since 2003 I've been teaching couples' dances at Nick's in Alexandria, first with Lloyd Thompson & now with Rich Mahan. I also teach once a month at Country By The Bay and occasionally at NVCWDA.

My newsletter began in 2002 as a way for the former patrons of Spurs to stay together & know where to find each other. Since that time the recipient list has grown to over 400 people & continues to grow. My focus is country dancing, but I also put in some swing & hustle events, especially those that might also play a few 2 Steps. I owe some of those organizers for the lessons I learned from them as I came along as a dancer as well as for much of the information I use in the newsletter.

If you'd like me to add your name to my list, please send your name & email address to lbloyer@friendsofcountrydance.net or lbloyer@yahoo.com Please include something about dance news in the subject line. Also, if you know of an event I should include, please let me know. I depend on many of my readers to help me with new listings, as well as when events change or disappear.

I hope you find the newsletter interesting & helpful.
