Welcome to the Capital USA Dance November Update

Greetings, USA Dance members and supporters! Fall is fell. As the temperatures outside go down, we're heating things up in the ballroom with a great line-up of activities!

See you this Sunday...



Our board of directors nominations are in, and the nominations committee has an important announcement!

Since there are no contested seats on the board this year, all nominees are to be directly inducted as board members, effective January 1st, 2014!

The incoming board will consist of:

  • Jim DeForge
  • Sherry Dickinson
  • Fadia Ghobrial
  • Blaise Hartley
  • Sabrina Hartley
  • Karen Pelland
  • Anita Riccio
  • Barbara Ritschell
  • Margaret Watterworth

Additional members may be appointed by the incoming president and approved by the incoming board in the coming year, so if you are interested in helping out, let us know!



This month, the membership has the opportunity to vote on approval of the new chapter bylaws. Secret ballots will be available at the desk all evening at this month's dance on November 17th!


Annual Meeting

Our chapter's annual membership meeting will be held on December 11th at our monthly board of directors meeting. It starts at 6 PM at the Law Offices of Flink Smith, at 449 New Karner Road in Albany.

All members are encouraged to attend, but we ask that you let us know you are coming, so we can ensure seating availability.


November Dance This Sunday

This month's third Sunday dance features Music by DJ Johnny Martinez, a salsa lesson also taught by Johnny, and a showcase by Tango Fusion.

It will also be our anual Toys for Tots benefit, so be sure to bring a toy or donation with you for the Marines to distribute to those in need! There will also be a 50/50 raffle held to benefit the Toys for Tots program.

The dance will be held on Sunday, November 17th at the Polish Community Center (225 Washington Ave. Ext., Albany, NY)
