000 - 2020 Xmas Party
2020 has been a difficult year because of Covid 19. Everyone is strongly encouraged to social distance and avoid crowds. I wanted very much to have a Xmas Party to invite dancing friends over to see our remodeled house decorated for Christmas. I had to invite only close friends this time around but am keeping fingers crossed that Covid will be gone by next Christmas and I can then invite more friends.
Hosted below are a dozen videos, 4 of the house and 8 of the Xmas Party at my place on December 18, 2020. Everyone had a great time even though we missed our fellow dancers. The ladies in particular had a wonderful time dancing with Gary Weidenmoyer, a PRO Dance Instructor.
Lawn & Front Screened Porch
Hope to improve Xmas decor for next year. Guess Tom and I need to start earlier to put up more lights.
Foyer & Living Room
Happy with how everything looks in my entrance foyer especially the altar that Tom built me.
Tom's Media Room
Loved how the huge Xmas Tree looked from both inside and outside because of the extra wide Bay window.
The "ballroom" with attached bathroom at one end and full kitchenette/viewing area at the other end is custom built for
the convenience of dancers.
Guests at Dinner
Yoko with Guillermo, Victoria with Tony, Leanne and Gary at
the long dining table and Tom with Cheryl and Tom at the
round table enjoying food, wine and conversation.
Tango - Leanne with Gary and Yoko with Guillermo
Leanne danced American Tango with Gary while Yoko danced
Argentine Tango with Guillermo. Margaret was also on the
dance floor with Tom Isola dancing American Tango.
Hustle - Victoria Crowley with Gary Weidenmoyer
Victoria having a great time dancing Hustle with Gary
as evidenced by the smile on her face.
Salsa - Margaret Hicks with Gary Weidenmoyer
I really enjoyed dancing Salsa with Gary even though I just had
2 Salsa lessons from him.
Foxtrot - Cheryl Isola with Gary Weidenmoyer
Cheryl having a wonderful time dancing Foxtrot with Gary.
She must have enjoyed being dipped at the end of the dance.
Waltz - Leanne with Gary Weidenmoyer
Leanne dancing Waltz with Gary later on in the evening and
having the dance floor exclusively to herself.
Tango - Victoria Crowley with Gary Weidenmoyer
Victoria love dancing Tango and was thrilled to dance with
Foxtrot - Margaret Hicks with Gary Weidenmoyer
I didn't particularly enjoy dancing Foxtrot until a few months ago
when Gary became my Dance Instructor.
The ladies and I had such a good time dancing with Gary Weidenmoyer that I plan to host parties once a month or every other
month, depending on interest, exclusively for ladies wanting to be dance hosted by Gary.
Covid has reinforced the awareness that life is short and that we should endeavor to live it to the fullest, as best we can. I intend
to do so in the New Year, starting with relaunching my Precious Video Moments Dance & Social Club which was still born as plans had to be scuttled due to need to social distance. I will, of necessity, be focused on catering to a small exclusive group for the time
being until Covid is history.
