Dear friends.... Well, we tried.....I was informed yesterday that there will no longer be Line Dance Mondays at Hill Country.  We just couldn't get the numbers that The Management needed.   I'd like to thank all of you who made a strong and concerted effort to keep us going for the past six months.  Your dedication and loving support is greatly appreciated.   In the meantime, you can get your line dance on in my weekly classes on the Upper West Side.  I'll keep looking for a suitable and affordable space for future line dance events.   The thing that makes me feel the most sad is that our line dance community in Manhattan has seemed to fade away. Breaks my heart.   To those of you who remain, come and dance with me!  I'd love to see you and dance with you!
I am NOT giving up on this amazing sport that we share!!!  
Please  stay well, keep in touch and have happy and healthy holidays!
With warm, sincere and very grateful regards,   
Rona Kaye

The Management Team at Hill Country and I are looking forward to seeing you again tonight, Monday, October 7th, for our Line Dance Mondays event!  I will continue to review as needed and teach something new!  Thanks so much for helping to support the venue by purchasing something to eat and drink.  The food at HC is really the best Texas barbecue in Manhattan!  Hours are 6:30-9:30 PM!  Feel free to come downstairs at 6:15.  Bring a friend!   Your support means a lot and will help us to keep  Line Dancing alive here in New York City!!!
FYI:  I just received an email from four line dancers from France who will be visiting NYC and want to dance with us at Hill Country on October 21st..I don't even know if we will still be there.  OY!  I just wrote back to them.
Looking forward to seeing you and Frank on Wednesday, Amer.....safe travels...xxxxx
Love and thanks,
Rona

Last night's enthusiastic turnout was better than expected, considering the holiday. Once again, there were a few new faces and it looks like we are actually having returning "regulars" on the dance floor.  I did quick one wall reviews, reviewed last week's teaches and taught a piece of new choreography called When You Smile.  Last night's line dance play list included Cupid Shuffle, Mamma Maria, K Is For Kicks, Senorita La La La, American Kids, Tush Push, Sundance, Bayou Dreams, Keep It Simple, Shotgun Jenny, Texas Time, Wagon Wheel Rock, CACB and I taught a quick lesson for an El Paso (Partner Classic).  As of right now, we are back next Monday night, October 7th, at Hill Country!  Please continue to check this blog for all updated info.  See you on Monday!  Bring a friend!

Dear friends....I was (apologetically) informed late last night that Hill Country was cancelling our Line Dance Mondays event tonight (August 19th). The reason is that this time of the year is a very slow period for NYC restaurants in general with many New Yorkers being out of town these last few weeks of Summer. 
Our next scheduled date is Monday, September 16th.  I am dancing out of town on the 9th (sorry about that.) 
I hope that this does not cause any inconvenience to any of you.  So sorry for that. Thank you for your continued support of this event.  We will see you on September 16th at Hill Country!!!!
