You Do What?!!

I don't think I've told my Blogger Buddies that I took up line dancing last winter. I needed something to do in the evening and my friend Lloyd invited me to take lessons with him. It was certainly out of my comfort zone but I figured if he could do it, after all he's over 80, that I could too. It took awhile but I have come to really enjoy it. We usually take 2 lessons a week and go to dances put on by our teacher a couple times a month.


Our instructor is asked to help put on a demo at the county fair every year so we were recruited. We did 15 dances (dancing is also good for the mind, but who knew?) over a 2 hour period. There were also couple and intermediate dances in between. We had a ball! My kids all came to watch and even tho Jerzie had decided it would be 'boring', after a couple dances she wanted me to teach her how! Payton said she laughed but she wanted to learn too.


Here is a video of one of the dances. I'm in green and my friend Lloyd, is in tie dye. If you get a chance to learn I recommend it. It's great exercise and also good for a laugh!

Good for you, Jean! I have always thought line dancing looked like fun. Unfortunately I have no rhythm and don't dance at all(now and then a slow dance) so I miss out on all the fun at dancing events.

You do a great job at dancing. You are truly dedicated to learning the dances and I can see that you do have fun while doing them. I'm so glad to have you and Lloyd in our group. Tell your friends that everyone who has a heartbeat has rhythm and two left feet can be corrected!!! Keep dancing!!!
