Dance Instructor Gloria Anderson will teach dance using a variety of rhythms, including polka, tango, rumba, cha-cha, swing, and country western.  This year’s courses will include new steps and new dances. 

In addition to the delight dancing can bring to many, studies have shown that act of learning to dance can actually provide special health benefits.  According to the Harvard Mahoney Neuroscience Institute, learning to dance can help improve both memory skill and endurance.  

Class participants should wear comfortable and supportive shoes that have a smooth sole. Gym shoes with rubber soles are usually too soft and do not allow free movement on the dance floor. Basic comfortable clothing that allows free movement is the only other requirement.  

NO REGISTRATION NEEDED!   Just pay at the door and be ready for a great time!

Cash or Checks Payable to LOLA.

Explanation of Line Dance Levels:

Level 1 (Absolute Beginner):  Absolutely no previous dance experience is required. Basic line steps are taught and are choreographed to different music moderately paced to a strong 4/4 or 3/4 beat. Some of the dances later in the hour include one wall change of either a ¼ or ½ turn. Also, basic line dance terminology and etiquette is taught.

 Level 2 (Beginner):  Choreography will be suitable for dancers who have completed level 1 or have had some previous line dance experience. Routines will include additional rhythms such as waltz and cha-cha and the musical tempo will range from slow to moderate. Generally the dances will include 32 to 48 counts, will incorporate some styling principles and use one or more turns. 

Improver:  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.
