Line Dancing for Beginners

with DJ Lady T

Long Island has become Line Dancing Island – so come on and join the party! Line Dancing is a whole body workout, doesn’t require a partner, and it’s lots of fun. Our 5-week program will include lessons and a period of free dance, just right for beginners to get the right instruction and practice, while seasoned dancers can brush up on their skills. No experience necessary. A list of dances will be provided at the first class, and they will be reviewed/revisited weekly. By the end of the summer you will be dancing across the floor as master of some of the basics.

Wear comfortable clothing and dress in layers, and proper footwear is most important. Sneakers are recommended . No sandals, flipflops, or high heels please.
