Good morning COOKIE CLUB DANCERS, the program for tomorrow's (December 14th) Cookie Club will be easy, relaxing, Advanced Dancing, that means as many of the Calls on the "A1" & "A2" List, I can cover in the two hours. If there are Calls you would like a review on, or a Call you would like to practice, please let me know tomorrow afternoon, and I'll do my best to give you my best rendition of that Call.

Saturday's Program for the Cookie Club, November 23

Tomorrow, Sunday, November 23rd is The Cookie Club, and oh, what ever are we going to work on that will increase our knowledge of Definitions, Position, and Formations? "All Eight Dixie Style to a Wave", "All Eight Reverse Dixie Style to a Wave" could be neat, along with "All 4 Couples Square Chain Thru" and "All 4 Couples Left Square Chain Thru". How about the difference between "Grand Remake" and "Remake The Column", or "Left Spin The Windmill, Ahead"starting from Facing Lines. So, if we get through all that and all the Calls on the A1 & A2 List, including In Roll, Out Roll & Split Motivate we could look at, "Common Spot Diamonds", and/or "Interlocked Diamonds" as in "Switch to an Interlocked Diamond", "Interlocked Diamond Circulate" & "Cut The Interlocked Diamond". Or we could, as always do Dancers Choice where you pick the Call you want to work on and we do that. I know, you're going to say, this is an aggressive program, but remember, it's only as aggressive as you want it to become, I make the Program, your skills will determine how far I can push it.Tomorrow is the second last Cookie Club for 2014 and December 14th will be the last, We will start back on Sunday January 11 2015.

Cookie Club program for tomorrow: 

Peel Off starting from a Two Faced Line, then moving it up a notch to "Trail Off" from a Two Faced Line, if that is successful I'll move it up another notch to Peel and Trail form a Two Faced Line, if we can do all that, it will also be a perfect day.

All 4 Couples and All 8 Concept: we will work more with the Calls that can be danced using these concepts.

Left: Spin The Windmill, AheadRight or Left: starting with facing Dancers in the centre and using Left to Clarify.

In Roll Circulate 1 & 1/2: Time permitting we will get back to a little Practice at this.

That will likely fill the afternoon of Dancing, when we tie it all together using as many Calls as possible from the Callerlab Advanced List.
