April Wrap-up

Well, it’s been a busy month for your den mother, both on the dance floor and off. So, I’ve returned to my slacker ways with the updates. But don’t fret–we’ve still been dancing like crazy. Here’s what you missed:

April 15th: Tax Day, Schmax Day. I had to send a huge check to the IRS this year, but all that faded away once we started movin’ and groovin. DJ Reaction presented a choice of three mixes, and the ladies in attendance that night chose her mix of novelty–80 minutes of ridiculous songs that made us giggle with delight.

We danced to rap accompanied by banjo, songs about odorous body parts, and, let’s just say, will never look at soccer practice in the same way again. And kudos to our new dancer that night–hope you come back soon!

April 22nd:

While den mother Megan was away in Mexico for a week, den mother Michele was left to rule the roost. Unfortunately, a communications snafu left the ladies without a mix. Luckily, Megan had prepared in advance for such a situation and Michele was able to use an Emergency Mix left in the storage bin.

So, that Thursday’s mix was provided by an old CD originally made my Liz Mason. Liz, we salute you!
