It’s Summertime in the Northwoods, which means Line Dancin’ with Gloria!
We are so excited to once again be offering 3 different levels of contemporary line dancing. Come join the always sunny and energetic Gloria Andersen for a day, a week, or the whole summer!
Instructor Bio: Gloria Andersen, mother and grandmother, retired to the Northwoods of Upper Michigan from a retail banking career in 2003. For her love of dance, she continues to attend a variety of dance classes in Phoenix, Arizona, and has participated in several national workshops where she won 2nd place in a choreography competition in 2016. She participates in many classes and workshops during the winter months in the Southwest, so she is ready with new steps and moves each summer.
Gloria volunteers her time to teach line dance classes at LOLA Arts for beginning to advanced students. She has also taught line dance classes for PORA (Property Owners Resident Association) in Sun City West, Arizona and basic line dance to children during the Sun City West ‘Happy Camp’. Her hope is to share her passion for dance with students of all ages and skill levels.
Level 1 (Basic Beginner): Absolutely no previous dance experience is required. Basic line dance steps are taught and are choreographed to different music moderately paced to a strong 4/4 or 3/4 beat. Rhythms included are: cha-cha, waltz and two-step. Some of the dances in the hour include a one wall change implemented by either a 1/4 or 1/2 turn and are comprised of 32 counts. Also, basic line dance terminology and etiquette is taught. Easy to transition into beginner class.
Level 2 ( Beginner): Choreography is suitable for dancers who have completed Level 1 or have had some previous line dance experience. Routines will include additional rhythms such as night club two-step, mambo, tango and fox-trot. The musical tempo will range from slow to moderate. Generally, the dances will include 32 to 48 counts, will incorporate more styling principles and use one or more turns.
Please bring exact cash or check, as Gloria may not have change.
Improver Class: This level assumes previous line dance experience or the satisfactory completion of levels 1 & 2. Additional step patterns are introduced, and the choreography will include additional rhythms and tempos. Dance routines at this level use several turns, often have 64 counts and may also use tags and restarts.
Please bring exact cash or change, as Gloria may not have change.
Classes will run as long as the attendance is adequate and the facility remains available. (Dates and times subject to change)
