This week, we can have another Grand Re-Opening for the website!! With a lot of hard work, I am thinking positively that our website whoas are behind us! Yeah! Your favourite features of our site including our programs, blog, cuesheets and the many other areas on the Capital Carousels Website are up and operational! Despite some of our downtime, I was able to build more content for the site including a Special Events page which will feature our Summer Caper and Capital Caper events. I have also added more events and flyers to our Coming Events section so be sure to check them out. Incidentally, our programs, cuesheets and flyers should appear on the page now in a downloadable format or print as you wish. One of our improved features of this website. Now all that is left is the dancing and about time I’d say!
I would like to thank all of you for your patience and support as we have gone through our trials and tribulations with this website. Thank you! A special SHOUTOUT to Arlo who has been instrumental in trying to find answers or being in touch with those who could provide answers. We all know he will be headed half way around the world tomorrow, and despite this, he has spent plenty of time on this with me this week. My thanks Arlo! You THE MAN!

Our 2015-2016 dance season will finish on a real high note this year! We are thrilled to announce that JL and Linda Pelton, round dance cuer/instructors and choreographers from Dallas, Texas will be with us, May 11 and 12!! With this special event, JL and Linda will be teaching two dances (one on Wednesday night and one on Thursday morning) which will be open for all of our Capital Carousel dancers on both days. This week, not included in our regular spring session fee, will be offered at a VERY special price of $5/person or $10/couple which will include BOTH DAYS! If you choose to attend just one day, it will be the same cost. Excellent value for an amazing experience! You won’t want to miss out on this great opportunity!
JL and Linda’s story starts when they met at a square dance convention in 2004. They continued to dance together at both square and round dance events, even having a square and round dance reception at their wedding in 2007! JL began cueing in 2008 and their lives continue to grow through their love of round dancing! You can read their full story through this biography link.
We are very pleased that the Peltons’ will be combining some sightseeing and some dance experiences at Capital Carousels while they are here! We will keep you posted through our blog here and our club day announcements for details as they are released. Looking forward to your visit JL and Linda!
Thursday, May 12 will be our last day of teaches this season. Typically on our last dance day on Thursday, we have a luncheon afterward. Expecting a higher attendance this last day from both our Wednesday and Thursday dancers, we will be having a potluck at the church immediately following our dance day! What’s not to like? We don’t have far to travel for lunch and we get to sample many excellent dishes brought by our group members. We also get this special time together as a club and with our special guests, JL and Linda. This last week of dancing this season just gets better and better! Stay tuned!

A new year is ahead of us and Capital Carousels is starting it off right with a new website! Due to some computer and software issues, I have had to shift our focus and develop our website with a new program. I am excited to be using RapidWeaver which has many similar characteristics of our previous website program along with some exciting new features! You can expect to get the same type of content you had access to on our previous website, and be able to find it easier. It is a new program for me, and there will be a learning curve of sorts, so please be patient with me as I develop the site. I am excited to be developing our website with RapidWeaver and look forward to another fantastic year on www.capitalcarousels.ca!
