Kudos to the line dancers who braved snow and ice to dance Christmas week. (We unmasked and held our breath for the picture!)

Another week of fun dancing! 💃

Tuesdays are 1/2 easy beginner and 1/2 beginner dances.
The first 3 dances will be the easiest for our new dancers.

Fridays are Beginner/High Beginner & Improver dances.
I am trying to alternate between them so it does not seem
as overwhelming, but still a challenge.

Tuesday, 5/24

Warm up:  Crash & Burn
                   Cold Heart
                   Rocket to the Sun

😳 So I think I there were too many improver level dances on 
Friday, especially with new people joining. My apologies! I am 
going to try to balance between beginner (not absolute beginner), 
high beginner and improver. I guess I got carried away because 
everyone was doing so well. 💃

Friday, May 13, 2022

Welcome to our new dancers on both Tuesday and Friday! 

Tuesdays:    We will start Tuesday class with 2 or 3 easy beginner 
dances to encourage our new dancers. Then we will learn a new 
dance and review dances from the past month. It takes about a 
month for your brain and the steps to work together.

Fridays:   We will warm up with an easy dance and then learn our 
new dance followed by reviews. If you come to class regularly,
it will be more fun for you. But if you miss, we will try to catch 
you up!

Tuesday 5/10 -  I changed my plan as we danced so I may not 
have this correct. But this is what I think we did.

Warm up:    Uh Huh - Jo & Rita Jo Thompson
