Who wants to dance this spring/summer? With the current warm weather it seems we are quickly headed for our changing seasons. It’s time to see who wants to dance at the Ranch for the 2017 spring/summer months. Ranch dancers will have their spring series starting in April and lasting nine weeks. Rebecca accepts reservations for class series far into the future, so with a session starting in mid-April, then two others in the remaining months of 2017, you can reserve space now no matter your current resident status. Keep in mind that class attendance requires a reservation; drop-ins are not encouraged as class size is limited; so advance contact with Rebecca is required to attend.
Leaving for the summer? Space may allow you to start dancing with a partial series before you leave town.
The current series of line dance classes is about to wind up, and the gang has learned several brand new dances. Community dance practices led by your fellow residents can supplement your dancing week. You are always encouraged to attend practices held weekly in SaddleBrooke.
Whether you are a novice or more experienced, Rebecca’s lessons are geared to giving you the opportunity to dance, improve brain function, get some exercise and make some new friends. Many dancers are without partners, but couples dance, too. All class levels include fundamentals to prepare you for enjoying years of line dance fun. You will experience line dance with different music styles and rhythms, but we often stress country and western. Completing a couple basic series of lessons makes you comfortable moving to more challenging dances. It’s not uncommon for dancers to stay with a favorite skill level forever. The dances for all levels change each series so there’s always something fresh.
Some of your neighbors have now been dancing with Rebecca since October of 2012. There are two groups dancing: one for brand new starters and a second for those more experienced with line dance skills. The most advanced dancing class is in SaddleBrooke. Those wishing the biggest challenge come down for the fun. Start in the easiest session and when your knowledge, foot speed and fitness allow, move on up to another level. If you think you are beyond beginner status please speak of this with Rebecca to assess your skills.
Ranchers who are busy on Wednesday will also find reciprocal dance space down in SaddleBrooke; Monday beginner sessions or Monday/Tuesday Level 2 classes are options. With Rebecca teaching three skill levels over four days of classes in SaddleBrooke you can definitely find a class and skill that fits you in either of our fine Robson communities.
To place your name on one of the reservation lists for spring or summer, contact Rebecca Magdanz at linedancin4SB@aol.com or phone 818-2656. Rebecca is a professional line dance instructor with about 10 years of SaddleBrooke/SB Ranch teaching.
