Dear Editor:Aspen Community Social Dance is a new organization. Our mission is to promote and present social dance events and dance instruction. We have encouraged the city of Aspen to restore the Rio Grande Commons Room to its original condition with its maple wood floor.We are happy to announce that the city has removed the carpet and the wood floor is once again in use. We want to thank the Aspen City Council, City Manager Steve Barwick, Mayor Helen Klanderud and assistant city manager Bentley Henderson for their leadership on this project.We are very happy to have received significant assistance from the following businesses and want to thank them for all their help in accomplishing this end: Walter’s Carpets and Rugs, BMC building materials, and Borzym Acoustics.Our organization is looking for volunteers to help organize community events in the Rio Grande commons room (former Youth Center on Galena St., Courthouse Plaza.) Please contact Junee Kirk if you would like to participate.Our first event will be a casual social dance from 7-10 p.m. this Saturday evening, March 31. At 7, a short class of free instruction on swing dance and simple foxtrot step will be given. It is open to the public and we welcome your participation.Junee KirkAspen
