Last night was magical. From the snowfall on arrival, the beautifully transformed studio space, the incredible desserts, to the fun we all had on the dance floor – it was an enchanted evening! I have a feeling this will be the first of many Balls. Here are some of the photos. Enjoy.
We’ve been having a lot of fun with our Individual Focus Classes. Next Tuesday, Dec. 10th we will teach how to dance to Blues music. The moves you will learn in this class will add a whole new dimension to your partner dancing.
Here’s a short video someone took of us Blues dancing at the Jazz Festival.
I wanted to wait with posting this video clip until we learn this dance, but it’s just too much fun to watch…. Enjoy, and come to Line Dance class Friday night at 7pm.
Yes, we are dancing Friday nights. Check out the new Winter schedule for a combination of Line DancZen and Club DancZen events on Friday nights. All classes are $10 per person, no experience or partner required. Just come and have fun on the dance floor.

7 Benefits of Line dancing
Line dancing may surprise you with all it has to offer.
Many people love to line dance. It is fun, good exercise and is a great form of dance all on its own.
BUT, Line dancing can also be a fun way to improve your dance skills. The same skills learned in line dancing will apply to any form of couple dancing. Below are 7 benefits of line dancing.
Line Dancing will:
1. Teach you to dance. If you can’t dance by yourself, how can you possibly expect to dance with a partner? Line dancing teaches you to actually move your body.
2. Improve your Balance: teaches you how to maintain your own balance while moving to the beat
3. Help you Find the Beat: Oh a big one. Staying on beat (on time) is critical in any dance whether by yourself or with someone else. Learning to find the beat and timing of any dance is critical before getting with a partner.
4. Teach you basic footwork. Learn how to do triple steps, turns and spins, rocking steps and many other steps that you will use in every form of dance.
5. Improve your confidence. Helps overcome feeling of having “two left feet”; Offers sense of pride and accomplishment and improves your coordination.
6. Provide you with a dance outlet whether you have a partner or not. Today, it seems there is a line dance for just about any song you can think of. If not, many line dances are timed that they can fit multiple songs providing you many dance opportunities.
7. Provide you a way to practice. You always hear that practice is necessary to improving your dance but you may not know exactly how to, or what to practice. Line dances are a perfect structured means to practice dance technique.
And the list goes on and on. Take advantage of the opportunities to improve your dance.
