Another virtual option

For those of you who would like something a little more challenging, Bradley Mather will be doing a Classics class on Monday & Thursday at 4 p.m. EST (3:30 Central) on his facebook page bradley.matherpro.3.  The first dance is to honor Kenny Rogers who just passed away, Islands In The Stream.  I think this first one will be a video until he can work out the bugs on live but either way it should be fun.

Videos of dances from H.O.T.

Although I did not get to H.O.T., I know they taught a lot of new dances.
Here is a link to videos of many of the dances taught at the event. In your
spare time you could look at them and make a list of the ones you like.
Send me your list. 💃

Virtual line dance class

Ira Weisburd is having a virtual line dance class every Tuesday morning
from 9:30-11:30 am CDT. The dances are easy and fun. You don’t have to
be on Facebook to do the class, just use the link below.
I think the videos will stay active so you can still see this week’s class.
There were a few glitches with everything backwards at first, but that is
all worked out now that the camera was reversed. It is a challenge to try
to do technology yourself from your dining room. I think it is great that
he is doing this for all of us. You also see his wife, Diane and their cute
Little dog, Amber. Check it out. Thanks Ira!

Dance classes canceled through the end of March

I just got a call from Cliff Nelson Rec Center.  The facility will be closed for the rest of the month.
Schools are all canceled as well. I will keep you updated if things change. I will try to post some dances with youtube videos each week so you can practice at home if you like. Hopefully the Covid-19 will not last long if we all take measures to limit the transmission. Wash your hands. Use hand sanitizer. Keep a hopeful positive attitude. I will miss you all! 😷💃💓
