Upcoming Events

Racehorse Falls Euphoric Hike!

Euphoric Hike ! Tiffany & I are organizing another short notice hike for this Friday the 15th of May to the beautiful and mysterious Racehorse Falls. (Friday is the only day this week with acceptable weather). This hike will involve a short easy walk to the upper falls and then a steep slippery hike down to the lower sets of falls and back up to the upper falls again and then back down the trail to return to the cars. As parts of this hike are quite steep good shoes are an absolute must and treaking poles are highly advised (we have several extra pairs of poles for people to use) Due to the steepness this is not recommended for small children. We will all meet at the parking lot of the Welcome Store – corner of Mt. Baker Highway and Mosquito Lake Road (5565 Mt. Baker Hwy Deming WA) at 11:00 AM Friday morning the 15th of May, 2020 except for those making arrangements to ride with us from our place (4950 Reese Hill Rd. Sumas WA) and will return in the mid afternoon. Be sure to wear good shoes/hiking boots, and perhaps a jacket. In keeping with the Whatcom county health department guidelines that answer the question: “What can I still do?” with “Go outside and exercise” – “keep six feet between you and those who don’t live with you” we will be doing just that as well as providing hand sanitizing wipes. If you or anyone you have been in contact with has been ill or if you are susceptible to illness you will not be able to come, of course. We are anticipating a fairly small group due to the short notice but these hikes are turning out to be more popular than anticipated so we may be surprised. So if if it seems like your parents could use a break from y’all and if you are up for a bit of adventure we would love to see you Friday morning the 15th of May 2020 at 11:00 AM at Welcome Store.

Euphoric Hike! to Maple Falls

Euphoric Hike ! Tiffany & I are organizing another short notice hike for this Friday the 1st of May to maple Falls. (Friday is the only day this week with acceptable weather). This hike will involve an easy walk and talk to a meadow and a short hike down to the falls and back again. (much less strenuous than the last one). We will all meet at our place (4950 Reese Hill Rd. Sumas WA) at 9 AM Friday morning and will return early in the afternoon. Be sure to wear good shoes/hiking boots, a jacket. In keeping with the Whatcom county health department guidelines that answer the question: “What can I still do?” with “Go outside and exercise” – “keep six feet between you and those who don’t live with you” we will be doing just that as well as providing hand sanitizing wipes. If you or anyone you have been in contact with has been ill or if you are susceptible to illness you will not be able to come of course. We are anticipating a fairly small group due to the short notice but these hikes are turning out to be more popular than anticipated so who knows? ūüėČ So if if it seems like your parents could use a break from y’all and if you are up for a bit of adventure we would love to see you Friday morning the 1st of May 2020 at 9 AM

Euphoric Hike ! Welcome to Mars.

Tiffany & I are organizing a short notice hike for tomorrow to a place nearby, where nobody ever goes, that we like to call Mars. We will all meet at our place (4950 Reese Hill Rd. Sumas WA) at 10 AM tomorrow morning and will return in mid afternoon. Be sure to wear good shoes/hiking boots, a jacket and maybe sunglasses and a hat. Treaking poles are a great idea too. You can put it all in a small backpack along with your water bottles¬†and snacks. In keeping with the Whatcom county health department guidelines that answer the question: “What can I still do?” with “Go outside and exercise” – “keep 6 feet between you and those who don’t live with you” we will be doing just that as well as providing hand sanitizing wipes. If you or anyone you have been in contact with has been ill or if you are susceptible to illness you will not be able to come of course. We are anticipating a fairly small group due to the short notice and because¬†many of our dancers don’t like to hike¬†ūüėȬ†So if if it seems like your parents could use a break from y’all and if you are up for a bit of adventure we would love to see you tomorrow morning (Friday the 17th of April 2020 at 10AM¬†

Dance Canceled Until Further Notice
Starting this Thursday the 12th of March 2020

Our Dear Friends

Because a person in Whatcom County has tested positive for Coronavirus we will be canceling all further dance evenings and classes until further notice starting this Thursday the 12th of March, 2020.

We understand that many of you will be very saddend by this as you really look forward to our dances.  Trust me, we are going to miss you too because you are all very dear to us and we enjoy your company immensely.

But that is why we have decided to take this drastic measure.  We cannot bear the thought of any of you or any of your loved ones at home getting sick with this serious virus.  Social dancing involves a high degree of contact so it is an activity that is best avoided at this time.

I know it will feel to many of you like I am overreacting as no one in our families has been effected by the virus  but I would rather risk the loss of our dance academy than for a single one of you or yours to be harmed.  As they say, better safe than sorry.

Your understanding during this trying time is greatly appreciated.  When the danger is past we will email you all again and it is our sincere hope that you will return and that we can all be one big happy family again.

In the mean time please do continue to practice and enjoy dancing at home especially in preparation for our upcoming Dance Showcase on Saturday May the 30th.  To that end, here are a few tutorial and example videos that you can use to increase your dance skills at home:

These are tutorials for shuffle dance:

Many of our dancers have been asking for this kind of advanced training so depending on the degree of participation we may continue this new program into future months. If you would also like to help with set up please arrive right at 6PM and bring your enthusiasm.  Much looking forward to you joining us in what I believe may be one of our most fantastic endeavors!

However, on December 5th we will have our first Night Club Two step class as that will be our dance of the month for December in prep for our Country Christmas Ball on the 26th.

NC2 is an easy dance to learn and it is danced to some really beautiful music. It’s another one of those dances that everyone should learn. Don’t miss it¬†ūüėČ

Speaking of Thanksgiving again, our hearts were so warmed by the beautiful messages that so may of you wrote and posted on our Thanksgiving tree at the Waltz Ball last Thursday. We want you to know that we are thankful to God for every precious one of you all. You are very dear to us and we feel so privileged to serve as your dance hosts.

We love you all,

The Life Advice for Christian Young Adults Seminar

Happening Saturday, April 27th, 2019 9AM to 10PM (If we are able to finish early we will end the day with dinner and a social dance party :)

I will be presenting on the subject most of the time but we will also be listening to your perspectives and discussing things as a group. We will also be taking lots of breaks for snacks and meals.

Please message me back or email me at wylint@hotmail.com if you are thinking of attending or if you have questions.

We will be focusing on all the significant relationships in your present and future life and will be approaching this from a thoroughly Biblical Christian Worldview and reality free of political correctness or psychobabble.

This will be the most valuable event we have ever offered to our friends and fellow dancers.

Jesus said that He came “that we may have life and that we may have it more abundantly.” Discovering how He gives us that abundant life in our relationships is the object of this seminar.

This event is specially designed for Christian young adults (Those who have arrived at a level of maturity in which they are now beginning to think about future lifelong relationships.) If you are a younger adult, and you would like to attend, we encourage you to discuss it with your parents first to be sure that they are on board with the idea. We welcome and encourage inquiries from parents.

We will be focusing extensively on your relationships with God, parents, brothers and sisters, friends, employers and coworkers, and yes, with that future special someone as well, and your future children. These are the things that are truly important. They will have more impact on you than anything else and it is through them that God will accomplish the greatest things in your life.

A life of great blessedness is truly possible for those who break free from their self centeredness and are inspired with a much more beautiful vision. But that will never happen naturally. In truth, it takes a miracle. The fantastic news is that God is the source of miracles and He knows how to give good gifts to His children.

This event is free, but please do let me know if you are coming so I can be sure to have enough notebooks etc.. Just message me or email me at wylint@hotmail.com to RSVP and pre-register.

It will be held at our regular dance venue at 7694 Goodwin Rd. Everson, WA (corner of Goodwin and South Pass roads about one mile east of Everson)

It is my endeavor that this seminar will be the greatest blessing to you that it can possibly be and I have every confidence that it will be. I look forward to discussing subjects of serious interest to you and sharing with you a very bright and positive vision for your futures.

May God bless and keep you all,

Wylin

Unfortunately, however, we will not be able to do the fireworks display that we had planned to do because, as the Fire Marshall has told us, consumer fireworks are only allowed on New Years Eve and New years Day, and as we were not able to attain our venue on those days, we thus won’t be able to do the fireworks. ¬†:( ¬†Very sorry about that, but hey, we will be having so much fun dancing that we will forget all about the fireworks anyway! :) ¬†ūüėČ ¬†(we will do Party poppers and confetti instead – totally legal and we won’t have to stand out in the rain!) ¬†:)

See you then friends, ūüėČ

Jane Austen Ladies

We will, as usual, be pulling out all the stops for this event.¬† Many participants will be coming in Regency Era costume but anything 1740’s to 1820’s will fit in just fine as well.¬† Never fear however if you are not able to attain a costume in time for you can also come dressed current formal.

Jane group addressing the Presence

We will be enjoying contra dancing (including the “La Boone Amite'” – a 17th century French contredance.)¬† We will also try our hand at English and Scottish country dancing.¬† These are very easy dances to learn quickly and we will also have callers to guide us through them.¬† We are actively searching for a live orchestra to perform for us.

– Very Exiting News! We have an English Country Dance caller and musician who will be adding his expertise to our Jane Austen Ball event! His name is Barry Cole and he is a man of exceptional skill as both a musician, (he plays 20 different instruments), and as a caller, (for English Country, Scottish Country, Irish, you name it)!

But wait!- That’s not all.¬† we now also are privileged to host the authentic three piece English, Irish, Scottish country & contra band: Heliotrope!¬† This just keeps getting more and more fantastic!

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to learn and enjoy some incredibly fun and historic dances with your friends and family!

Just ask yourself – What would Jane do?

We will also be indulging in our usual homemade cake and Edaleen Dairy ice cream.  Event participants have graciously offered to bring 17th and 18th century treats so we look forward to indulging in those as well.
