Country Line Dancing is a fun way to get and stay active.  It keeps your mind sharp and your body moving, but we have to warn you……it can be addicting!  This form of dancing can be done with a group of friends, or completely on your own.  We will be offering classes for beginner, improver and intermediate dancers.

Beginner Line dance lessons: For those who have never line danced before. We take it slow and start with the basic steps. If you can count to 8 and know your right from left, you can learn how to line dance! Great music!, Lots of fun and good exercise too!  No partner needed :).  When you are ready for something more challenging try our IMPROVER or INTERMEDIATE classes.

Senior Improver clsss– for those seniors available during the day and who have surpassed the beginner level dances.

Partner Pattern Dancing classes will also be offered as well.  For beginners, we suggest you try a few beginner line dance classes first to learn some basic steps.  This is a great way for couples to learn something new together, or brush up on the latest new dances if you have some experience.  Having a partner is not mandatory for this class – you can learn on your own….. or bring a friend!

Open Dance Nights: We will be open one night a week open dancing Make requests and/or come and practice the dances you have been doing in our classes.  If we don’t have your song/dance…. we will get it!  Come in and dance with us on our “stompable” raised wooden dance floor! *Tuesdays 6:30 to 9:30 except for one week of the month when we have our Pot Luck Evening (see the schedule below).  For Pot Luck Nights, bring a dish to share and we will provide paper goods, water and soda.  There is a $10.00 cover charge for open dance, cash only.  Please feel free to bring your own food and drink, and come check us out.
