On July 1, a long-delayed party arrived for Rebecca Magdanz’s line dancing students.
It was a rousing success with 55 of your Saddlebrooke and Saddlebrooke Ranch friends and neighbors spending the afternoon on the MountainView Ballroom dance floor. About 25 different dances were performed in the fun and energetic afternoon party. Just look at those happy faces. A great time was had by all, and $150 was raised for the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary of Kanab, UT.
The Arizona waltz was again performed. This is a little dance choreographed for the days when Oracle State Park was being rescued from state budget austerity. It was first performed for the Save the Oracle State Park fundraiser a few years back. For those who haven’t heard our state song, search YouTube for “I Love You Arizona,” and enjoy the with a beautiful slide show of Arizona sights. It’s performed by Rex Allen, Jr., and his father did another waltz by the same name, so don’t get them confused as the real state song is very inspiring and should be shared with friends from less fortunate states. If you listen closely to Rex’s voice, you’ll pick up certain tones and inflections from his years of narrating most classic Disney animal shows.
Think line dancing isn’t active? The party lasted from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. with a 30-minute break for refreshments. Several fitness watches reported 11,000 to 12,0000 steps for the Level 2 dancers. 3,000 to 5,000 steps are the average for each of Rebecca’s 90-minute classes.
Line Dancing with Rebecca follows sound educational principals and emphasizes lots of fun. For information about line dancing for 2019-20, contact Rebecca Magdanz at linedancin4SB@aol.com or 520-818-2656.
