Sign-up now for Level 1 Beginner, Level 2 Easy Intermediate and Level 3 Intermediate. Line Dance classes for the summer are here.

The seven lessons in Level 1 teach you some basics of line dancing in a fun and safe environment. Rebecca teaches with humor, repetition and joy. You will learn new skills with each new dance. Dances are learned fresh and/or reviewed in each series. The series starts you on your dancing road and continues to build stamina and step familiarity. With new step types to learn you will master just a few at a time, usually just a couple with each dance. Some line dance steps are quite difficult so those come later in upper skill level lessons. Rancher beginners can dance Wednesday afternoon at the Hacienda aerobics room or Monday morning in SaddleBrooke HOA One Vermilion Room.

Easy Intermediate Level 2 and Intermediate Level 3 classes are terrific for the more experienced dancer. A mix of cardio and more complex dances is great fun for all. Level 2 works especially on skills and steps up the pace. And Level 3 sessions are for dancers after even more complexity, skills and extra stamina. Easy Intermediate Level 2 classes are available at the Ranch on Wednesday afternoons at the Hacienda or Monday afternoons, Tuesday mornings in SB HOA One and 2. Intermediate is Thursday afternoon and only available currently in SaddleBrooke.

Student party speed/practice sessions are Thursday (Beginner) and Saturday (Intermediates) afternoons in the MountainView aerobics room HOA 2. A great cardio and muscle memory session is the goal of practices with an hour of quickly moving from dance to dance. Come prepared to laugh, move, learn, perspire and expand your brain and memory. Level 1 dancers have their party speed sessions on Thursdays.

If you have tried some dancing and stopped for any non-physical reason, try it again. The only way not to have fun in line dance is to give up on it before the joy arrives. Rebecca has one abiding purpose in teaching; she just loves to see the joy and sense of accomplishment on the faces of her students when they succeed and have fun.

Classes are always affordable; the cost is less than $5 per full hour of dance and always starts promptly and lasts the full allotted time. Reservations are required and the A/C is on for indoor summer fun.

Rebecca is a full-time, 11-year resident in SaddleBrooke. She has trained SaddleBrooke and now SB Ranch dancers to have loads of fun on the dance floor for over eight years.
