JANUARY CLASS NEWSLETTER
CLASS REGISTRATION OPEN
Registration is open now for all classes, including the new special session of HULA! Yes, Thursday nights we will be learning Hula and Polynesian Dance with guest instructor Cathy of Hukalani Hula. She is a warm, engaging, and knowledgeable teacher, and I can’t wait to share her with you all.
*Please note, Kathy’s guest-taught hula class does not qualify for multiple
class discounts, so you must register for it separately and not as part of a

STUDENT BUSINESS AND RESOURCE DIRECTORY
If you are a small business owner as I am, then you likely saw a downturn in business in the past year and are vowing to find ways to make up for lost ground in 2010. I would like to do my part to help my students reach their business goals in the new year, and the first step will be to add a Student Business and Resource Directory. This will be a section on my website which will allow students to be listed in an online business directory, which will be readily available to your fellow students when they are seeking a particular service or item.
I am hoping this will increase our opportunities to network within our dance family, to help support one another in our endeavors outside the classroom as well as in.
A basic listing will be absolutely free to anyone who wishes to participate. So if you are interested, please get in touch with me and let me know your full name, business name, service/items you offer, contact information including phone and/or e-mail and website and I will start to compile the
directory. Here’s to a successful 2010!
SHAY’S BLOG AND TWITTER
In 2009 I began a dance-related blog over on Blogger, to offer my students, fans, and friends a peek into some of my dance thoughts and life adventures. Not only will I be posting class and local event related info there, but I will be blogging about my performance experiences, dance musings, costume and make-up tips, inspirational video clips, links to favorite web haunts, new favorite recipes, knit and crochet patterns, and offering up ideas for discussion which I would really love for you guys to be a part of. Please drop by and check it out from time-to-time (or you can get it fed via RSS or Atom to your favorite reader, like Google Friend Connect).
I will also be giving shout outs on Twitter when a new blog post goes up, and will be using Twitter as an additional way to keep up on class and workshop happenings and random dance musings and tidbits. I am @TheTribalDancer if you want to Follow Me!
