Yep, it’s hot outside, so move some of your mid-day activities onto the A/C supplied dance facilities we have in our community. There’s a lot of fun, exercise and camaraderie to be had during this hot weather. New classes started the week beginning July 8.

Sign-ups for Level 1/Beginner and Level 2/Easy Intermediate classes for the summer are finishing up with a bit of space available. The eight lessons in Level 1 teach you some basics of line dancing in a fun and safe environment. Rebecca teaches with humor, repetition and joy. You will learn new skills with each new dance. Dances are learned fresh and/or reviewed in each series. The series starts you on your dancing road and continues to build stamina and step familiarity. With new step types to learn, you will master just a few at a time, usually just a couple with each dance. Some line dance steps are quite difficult so those come later in upper skill level lessons.

Easy Intermediate/Level 2 classes are terrific for a more experienced dancer. A mix of cardio and more complex dances is great fun for all. Level 2 works especially on skills and steps up the pace. Easy Intermediate Level 2 classes are available Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.

Student party speed/practice/“happy feet” sessions are Thursday afternoons in the DesertView aerobics room. A great cardio and muscle memory session is the goal of practices with an hour quickly moving from dance to dance. Come prepared to laugh, move, learn, maybe perspire and, best for all, expand your brain and memory. These sessions average 5,000 steps in an hour of fun.

If you have tried some dancing and stopped for any non-physical reason, try it again. The only way not to have fun in line dance is to give up on it before the joy arrives. Rebecca has one abiding purpose in teaching: she just loves to see the joy and sense of accomplishment on the faces of her students when they succeed and have fun.

Classes are always affordable; the cost is less than $5 per full hour of dance and always starts promptly and lasts the full allotted time. Reservations are required and the A/C is on for indoor summer fun. Regular classes average about 5,000-6,000 steps for a 90-minute session.

Rebecca is a full-time, almost 14-year resident of SaddleBrooke. She has trained SaddleBrooke dancers to have loads of fun on the dance floor for almost 11 years.
