Line dances consist of a short sequence of steps that are repeated throughout the song. In this class the steps are choreographed so that there are no turns and dancers remain facing the front wall. The instructor cues the upcoming moves so memorizing the sequence is not required. Dances are danced to contemporary music. This class is for all ages and abilities.
Wednesday 6:00 - 6:55 pm Thursday 9:00 - 9:55 am 1st & 3rd Saturday 10:30 - 11:25 am
These two country line dance workshops are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. Popular social line dances are taught. The first workshop is beginner level and the second class is intermediate level. In both workshops the steps and dance sequence are taught and practiced before dancing to music. Often a dance is done to both a slower and a faster song.
Crane Dance - Gentle Tai Chi is similar to the Gentle Tai Chi Sequences class. Stationary crane, qigong, and tai chi moves that are not part of Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong class are taught and combined in a continuous fluid sequence representing the movements of the Crane.
Gentle Tai Chi-Qigong consists of gentle Qigong (Chee gung) stretches and Tai Chi (Tie chee) movements that help improve circulation and release stress. Gentle Tai Chi was developed specifically for seniors and people with Parkinson's but is great for any age. Because the moves are stationary, it is an ideal form of exercise for anyone that has balance issues. Moves can be done sitting if needed.
