Irish step is back at Merriconeag: As many of you know, Cristina Post won't be able to teach Irish step this year due to her daughter's imminent arrival. However, we are VERY lucky to have Bridget Burns stepping in, an Irish dance teacher from the Kennebunk area. She will be offering an 8 week session of classes on Tuesday nights in the Community Hall this fall. Beginners (dancers with 0-1 years of experience) are from 6:30-7:30, and continuing (more than one year of experience) are from 7:30-8:30. Classes start on October 18th. For more information, email either Bridget (questions about class info or pricing) at email@example.com or Cristina (questions about your dancer) at firstname.lastname@example.org. (10/11)
