22Jul

Tuesday is beginner day at the Spokane Valley Senior Center. The 9:30 am Slow & Easy class is an absolute beginner class, geared to new dancers and senior dancers who want a slower pace. The 10 am Beginner class is a little more challenging and faster paced.

The beginner classes meet on Tuesday mornings from 9:30-10:45 am. We start with very easy dances for the first 30 minutes and then progress to a little more challenge, but still beginner dances.

18Aug

The Line Dance Plus class at the Senior Center is for dancers with experience. Dances are mainly at the improver and easy intermediate level. We do a variety of new dances and old favorites.

The Line Dance Plus class meets on Friday afternoon from 1:30-3:30 pm. Some dance experience is beneficial as this class is faster paced with more challenging dances than the Tuesday beginner classes.

Judy Rausch

Beginner/Improver/Intermediate Line Dance Instructor

I am a retired RN/Health Care Educator having taught in a variety of nursing & allied health settings including a magnet high school. My spouse and I moved to Spokane Valley from Texas in June of 2020 to be closer to family. I began teaching at the Spokane Valley Senior Center in October 2021 when it opened up after Covid. I took my first line dance class in 2010 and was hooked. A group of ladies in my Sunday School class talked me into starting an easy class in the church gym while I was still a beginner myself. I have been teaching line dance ever since. I taught line dance as a volunteer for 10 years at churches and recreation centers in Arlington, Texas. I have taught all levels of line dance from basic beginner to advanced. For two years, I served on the Board of the North Texas Line Dance Association which sponsors the North Texas Line Dance Classic, a 2 day dance event in Farmers Branch, Texas. I have sponsored groups to many line dance events including H.O.T., Texas Line Dance Jamboree, Line Up & Dance, the Vegas Dance Explosion, and a Caribbean Cruise. I have also hosted workshops and taught/led dances at many line dance events, participated in several flash mobs and performed at nursing homes. I look forward to many more years of fun line dancing here in the Spokane area.
