About image
Spokane Valley Line Dance provides free classes at the Spokane Valley Senior Center on Tuesday and Friday mornings. The goal of these classes is to encourage people to remain fit and active as we age. With this in mind, we do a mix of new dances and old favorites.

The benefits of line dance include:
  • Boosts memory
  • Improves balance and flexibility
  • Reduces Stress
  • Improves mood
  • Strengthens your heart
  • Increases energy and metabolism
  • Fun social activity
If you are mobile, can clap in time to music and like to have fun, you will love line dancing.
(We all make mistakes so you need to be able to laugh at yourself.)  Join us and give it a try!

Judy Rausch

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.

Janette Pavolich

Line Dance Instructor

Originally from Canada, I moved to Washington State in 2018. I heard about line dancing classes at the Senior Center through a friend. I have always been into fitness ie. walking, jogging, bowling I even taught aerobics for many years but I had no experience in dancing. I took one class with Judy and I was hooked ! Such a great way to stay in shape physically and mentally. Within a few weeks of coming to dance classes my sweet husband converted my garage into a dance studio and as the saying goes, the rest is history!
