Our dance teacher, occasional caller and singer, Amanda Kay, has another talent she will be displaying this month. She has a supporting role in Huntsville Little Theater's production of Medea, directed by Phil James and starring Elaine Hubbard. Performances are on Feb. 10-12 and 16-18. For tickets call Pat Tatum at 536-6301.

The Arts Council is offering you a chance at (relative) immortality: for a minimum donation of $25 you can get your name on the wall of the new Arts Center, as well as help pay for the new building. Mail your check to the Arts Council, VBCC, 700 Monroe St., Huntsville, AL 35801 and note that it is for the Bricks & Mortar Fund (call 533-6565 with questions).

This area will see some roving minstrels in the next few weeks. Be sure to come to the Feb. 11 dance at Burritt to take in the music of the Johnson (they're not really)! Sisters, from Birmingham. Then kick up your heels to Red Mountain White Trash, also (mostly) from Birmingham, at Eastside on March 4. Some of you have already heard this group (with seven musicians, including Joyce and Jim Cauthen and Huntsville's Ed Baggott), and know that they're too good to miss. They journey to engagements all around the Southeast. Huntsville's Lykitor Knot is also starting to hit the travel circuit, and will be playing their second Tennessee engagement, for the Nashville Country Dancers, on Feb. 24.

We are sorry to announce that we are losing one of our most faithful dancers. Hildegarde Beaupre has been dancing with NACDS ever since the group was first formed, thirteen years ago. She was offered the opportunity to take a job in Honolulu, Hawaii -- so, we can't really blame her for leaving us. Hope there is a good dance group out there!

Please send or call me (536-2190) with news of yourself or other dancers, or whatever other information you think we should share here. Photos are appreciated too, and I'll be sure to return them after they've been reproduced.
