Great class at Redeemer Thursday. We did the same dances as 
the Tuesday class except I omitted Gloria. We danced the Freeze 
to the song Elvira by the Oak Ridge Boys as a warm up. 
Last week's dance called Whiplash was reviewed.
Keep practicing the Jazzbox 1/4 turn and the K-step! Next week 
will have much easier steps. 💃

We had a great turnout for our first class at Redeemer Lutheran 
Church. I think about 14, my guess since quite a few people 
arrived last minute and didn't sign in. We did the Tuesday dances 
and a new one called Whiplash to the song by Mercy Me.  After 
90 minutes we were tired out, but a few dancers wanted more so 
we successfully danced Whiplash at full speed. Way to go! 💃

Here is a link to the stepsheet and a youtube demo.

Each of the 8 lessons will build on what you have already learned 
while adding new steps and new dances. 

Lesson 2 will add heel step, K step and twist.

Lesson 3 adds rocking chair and V step.

Lesson 4 will be cha cha and shuffle.

Lesson 5 focuses on rumba.

Lesson 6 is waltz.

Lesson 7 covers mambo.

Lesson 8 is the challenging 12 count figure of 8.

And possibly Samba if the Center is open the Tuesday before 
Thanksgiving.

Lots to learn in the next 7 weeks! See you on the dance floor!

Also a reminder: Similar class on Thursdays at 4 pm at Redeemer 
Lutheran Church, 3606 Schafer Rd., Spokane Valley. This 
location is Dishman Mica & University. University becomes
