On the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month, we teach 3 free lessons between 8:00 and 9:30. We have open line dancing in between the lessons and afterward with DJ MiniMe. Stick around for review at 10:30.
To see what dances will be taught, check facebook.com/linedance4you that day. (We don't always announce the dances, but we usually do announce at least part of the line up.)
First Timers... What to Expect
If you've never been line dancing or just haven't joined us for lessons, here's what you can expect in our classes.
During lessons, we teach 3 dances starting with the easiest of the three dances and usually working our way up from there. Very few of our dances fall into the advanced category as we focus more on beginner dances up to some intermediate dances. I always suggest that, unless we announce otherwise, try all three! You may find that one particular step is harder or easier for you than others, so what we deem as a certain level may not apply to you. We do teach some structured couples dances (ie: El Paso, Sweetheart Schottische, etc), but since we focus on line dancing, these are only taught once a month on the first Tuesday of the month.
Follow our Facebook or Twitter pages for announcements of upcoming dances or to put in a request.
Each dance lesson takes 15-20 minutes. The lesson will be broken down to individual steps, then we do the dance twice to the music. The first time, we'll call the steps the whole time and the second time you'll try it "on your own". Between them and after lessons, we have open dance with our wonderful DJs so you can do the dances you've learned in previous weeks. About an hour after lessons end, we'll review the dances taught by doing a quick run through and then calling the first 4 walls for you.
We stay on the dance floor with you all for the majority of the night and will call out steps to anyone within earshot and of course, we're always available to walk through steps with you on or off the floor throughout the night.
I also highly recommend checking out our Blog for breakdowns of the basic steps (see Step of the Week) and other tips to help you along.
