Its official! Line dancing is good for your health. A recent article in the Guardian, tells us that admissions to A&E departments can be cut by a fifth if ‘mature’ people take up line dancing. Dave Birkinshaw started teaching line dancing over 20 years ago — and some of those initial dancers are still friends. We have a tea break in the middle of all of our classes. This means that people socialise over a cuppa and a biscuit rather than just simply dancing in a straight line, only communicating with the people alongside!
Because a partner is not essential to enjoy line dancing, many people just come along for the company and the exercise. If you are a Fitbit owner, you can ‘clock up’ quite a few steps in a two-hour session, without even trying!
Our new Beginners class starts at Oldcotes Village Hall, on the 12th September from 1.00pm to 3.00pm. Everyone is welcome, from complete beginners to those making a come-back.
Our other ongoing classes are from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, at Thursday, Edward Dunn Memorial Hall, Maltby and 7.30pm to 9.30pm at Thursday, Oldcotes Village Hall — all classes are £3.50 with free tea and biscuits. Once a month (on the first Saturday), we have a Line Dance Social, where very often, over 55 dances are danced during the evening. All welcome — we will do a mix of old and new / easy and difficult dances to suit everyone. This is held at Oldcotes Village Hall, where there is plenty of safe parking and a lovely dance floor, as well as a warm welcome. The cost is only £5.00 per dancer, bring your own drinks. For further information, please call Dave on 07808 931534 for details on any of the above!
