Dear Dancin' Friends,

GET TOGETHER
is the theme for my dance at the Hayloft in Lynnwood this Saturday, December 3. My 7 PM pre-dance lesson will be Rumba, "the dance of love". Then dance from 8 to 11 PM as I focus on songs with a message of love, peace and understanding. Scroll down for full details on this and other dances.

Ron's Song of the Week: Get Together by the Youngbloods

www.youtube.com/watch?v=cw2ze1Iw9d0

Prophetic? With his final album You Want It Darker www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0nmHymgM7Y (which hit #7 on the Billboard 200) Leonard Cohen got his last words out just before leaving the table. Everyone should be so lucky. I'll include some of his songs this Saturday.

Poco a poco - Ron Bolin
