Dr. Mark Magdanz
You want to line dance this fall? It’s hard to believe, but we’re already headed to another change in seasons. Fall classes are nearly full. If you are brand new you will start on the waiting list or come with us to SaddleBrooke Ranch until space opens in SaddleBrooke. Rebecca accepts reservations for her class series far into the future, so with fall series and more dancing in 2015, you probably are best served by reserving a space now for your fun in the future. Keep in mind that class attendance requires a reservation; no drop-ins as class sizes are limited by floor space.
Whether you are a novice or more experienced, Rebecca’s lessons are geared to giving you the opportunity to dance, improve brain function and get some exercise with new friends. All class levels include dance fundamentals, fitness and balance exercise and fun. You will experience line dance with different music styles and rhythms, but we feature country-western. If you are brand new to line dance (or your skills are not where you want them), start in the easiest session so you are not overwhelmed. Many of those who have completed a series or two are comfortable with Level 2 and the most fit and adventurous love the challenge of Level 3. If you think you are beyond beginner status please speak with Rebecca to appraise your abilities. Note: There is no true advanced dancing in our age/physical status of teaching; intermediate difficulty is the uppermost.
Level 1 Beginner Class is for those new to line dancing and for those who desire a slower pace. Classes occur mid-mornings Monday at HOA 1. This fall you can even dance Wednesday afternoons at SaddleBrooke Ranch if that class is not full.
Level 2 Beginner/Intermediate Classes deliver a bit faster learning and dancing workout. Given some previous training and/or experience you may jump directly to this level. For this level you should have some step training and be working on your stamina. Classes are Monday afternoon at the HOA 2 aerobics room and/or Tuesday morning at HOA 1. This fall you can possibly dance Level 2 Wednesday afternoon at SaddleBrooke Ranch.
Level 3 Intermediate Class is the most challenging class with lots of complex dances and a pretty vigorous workout. Unless you have quite a lot of stamina, experience and self-confidence, it’s generally best to start at a junior level. Class is Thursday in the early afternoon.
Saturday afternoon practice sessions occur year round for Levels 2 and 3 in order to perfect skills and increase stamina and mainly for a fast workout with abundant fun and laughter. Level 1 has practices on Thursday afternoons following the Level 3 class.
