March 11 - Week in Review

A big welcome to all of our new line dancers! 
Just remember it gets easier every week. Besides working
on your balance, flexibility and coordination, line dance is a 
brain workout. You are using a different part of your brain. 😊

March 4 - Week in Review

Reminder:  I teach 1 new dance each week on 
Tuesday/Thursday for the beginner classes and 1 
new dance on Friday for the Line Dance Plus class. 
We review each dance for 3-4 weeks so we have
better recall of them. 
If you come to class regularly it should be fairly 
easy to keep up. If not, the challenge is greater as 
they will all seem like new dances and can be 
overwhelming. No one is expecting perfection. 
So just do your best, have fun and enjoy class. 💃

New:  Wellerman by Gabi Schobloch
(section 1 we touched heels instead of kicks,
