Update:
Current Location - The latest information on the St. Andrews Fitness Center (SAF) floor replacement is that they are painting and getting ready for the floor to be put down. A beautiful wood floor has been ordered and contracts signed with a completion deadline of May 4. After this floor is complete, the Tuesday and Thursday classes will meet upstairs at SAF instead of at the Annex on Playground Road. This will also free up our dance space for more practice time, which is free if you are a member of SAF. We will keep you updated.

Permanent Location - The Board voted to take a survey of the membership regarding what kind of facility you would would like to have and where it should be located. This is being prepared now and will be sent to BDC members soon. There will also be open meetings for your input as this process goes forward. There is still a possibility that we might move back into our old location after it is renovated, but we are moving forward to locate another option just in case that doesn't work out.

This has been difficult and confusing for everyone but in the end, we should end up with an even better place to learn, socialize, and dance. Thank you for your patience and especially for keeping our attendance up. Without you, there is no BDC. The average attendance at parties for January was 30 and the average for March was 31.5 - way to go!!! Thank you. If we can make your party experience better while we are at SAF, please let any board member know. We are working hard to get the DJ microphone working and making the snack bar area more inviting. I don't think any of us had the slightest idea how important the DJ announcements are to a party! We should really double their salary.
