Summertime Swing Ballroom Dance classes
Ballroom Dance Classes coming to Albany Tech Continuing Ed
Ballroom Dancing means fun, fellowship and exercise. Albany Tech invites couples in the community to take date night to a whole new level beginning August 11. Albany Tech’s Ballroom Dance course is a 6-week course featuring Swing, Jitterbug and Cha Cha. The instructor is local dancing legend, Michelle Oaks, who has been teaching ballroom dance for 19 years. “We decided to offer Swing, Jitterbug and Cha Cha because those are three very versatile dances that are enjoyed in social settings like weddings, parties and class reunions,” explained Oaks. “Couples will not only have fun on class nights, but they can also take what they learned and enjoy dancing to all kinds of music for the rest of their lives.”
The Ballroom Dancing class will be held at Albany Tech on Thursday nights from 7:00-8:30 from August 11-September 15. The cost is $130 per couple. For more information, or to register, call 229-430-3867.

The event will help support the ongoing work of Lee County Family Connection, Inc. in their efforts to support the families and children of our community to become stable and self-sufficient and the continuous efforts of the Lee County Library to provide ongoing services to our community.
There are numerous ways to support this fun-filled event. We are seeking 4-person teams of adults to compete in the Spelling Bee.

Sponsorship is only $250. Deadline for sponsorships is July 15, 2016.
The community can support this event by coming out and cheering on their team of spellers. The event is free to the public. Community members can also show their support of their team by pre-purchasing and wearing an event t-shirt in the same color as their team’s shirt. (T-shirts must be pre-ordered by July 28, 2016). There will be some fun audience participation with “Minute to Win It Games” along with prizes for the winners.
We will have a “coffee house” with coffee and a variety of delicious desserts. Donations to the coffee house are greatly appreciated.
