Wow! It’s that time of year…time to dance. The joy of dance may be experienced by you…without a partner. We have a new Beginning Line Dance Class. Check it out!
Remember…Dance is exercise for your brain as much as for your body. While dancing your brain is constantly making new neural connections. Studies show that this is very beneficial for strong mental health.
The pleasure of dance, even if you don’t have a partner, is available in Oakmont. Our instructor, Steve Luther, has a unique style of teaching that makes it easier to learn the steps to a variety of dances…and the music he selects is upbeat and lively. As you progress you will enjoy a wide diversity of music and styles…from Country, Disco, Latin, Cajun, Rock and Roll, etc. It is the “only way” to exercise in the minds of our many line dancers.
Some of us had never danced prior to this line dance class…no worries, Steve makes us feel good about our dance and good about ourselves. You don’t need a partner, so there is no reason or excuse for you not to get out and enjoy the glory of dance…and you will, most certainly, make new friends during this time.
Beginning Line Dance Class is starting January 7, Monday nights at 7:15 – 8:30 p.m. at the Berger Center, and will continue weekly throughout the year. This beginning class series is only offered one time during the year, so jump right in and give line dance a try. A four week session (monthly) is only $28 (or $7 a class). Individual classes are $10.
Fun times are ahead. You will feel the joy and laughter in the room from the start. There are no reservations; so come early to allow time to sign up. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me, Mariellen Munson, at 538-4142. Oh, P.S…Fragrance Free!
