What’s Hot and What’s Not?

Europe!  It’s both hot and not.  Rachelle and Wayne were in France this August.  We went to a local restaurant for lunch in Isigny-sur-Mer, very near to the Normandy beaches.  There was only one table occupied.  The owner came over to our table and personally thanked us for coming to France.  She said that there have been very few Americans in her restaurant this year.  By the way, we found everyone we encountered in Normandy to be very warm and welcoming.

While Normandy, as well as other areas of Europe, is starving for American tourists, the river cruise ships in Europe are consistently filled to capacity and more are being built as you read this.  There are very few “not so good” river cruise companies.  Most are very good.  However, in our opinion there is one that stands out for value.  Avalon ships ply most of Europe’s rivers and provide passengers with unmatched cuisine and well-appointed staterooms together with exquisite service.

One of the difficulties of river cruising is deciding upon which river to cruise.  Some emphasize history and culture while others excel at scenery and still others have themes like wine tasting.

If you are considering a river cruise, you won’t want to miss the presentation by Doug Brown of Avalon Waterways and Globus Family of Brands.  He has been on the most popular rivers of Europe and will give an overview of those rivers.  The size of the audience will be limited, so we ask that you RSVP now if you want to hear Doug’s very informative talk.

More about Carol Feldman

More about Pete Burdack

Whether it’s line dancing, west coast swing, lindy or two step, Pete is known for his energy and enthusiasm on the dance floor. Needless to say, he transfers that intensity to his DJ style. Pete consistently delivers the “wow” factor not only for the dancers but for the spectators who just want to listen to music and be part of the scene. It is no wonder why he can be heard a several large dance venues and organizations including but not limited to the Colorado Cafe, Rhythms of the Night, and Central Jersey Dance Society.

More about Billie Jo Burdack

While Billie graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Pre-Law, her true passion is dance! She has been dancing for over 20 years – training and competing in several dance forms. While growing up, her main dance training focused in Ballet/Pointe, Jazz, Lyrical/Contemporary, and Tap. She later began to study Modern and Hip-Hop. Billie began teaching dance in 2003. In 2004, she was awarded the DIVA-In-Training Scholarship Award for best solo in any category and in 2008 became certified as a Group Groove Instructor. While she still continues to teach dance in her root forms, since 2010 she has expanded her training, competing and teaching backgrounds to include American Ballroom / Latin and Swing. Billie brings true dance style and technique to any dance floor. With experience teaching students age 2 through adult, she works well teaching any dancer no matter age, experience or level.
