Dance



Country Line Dancing
$44/4 classes

Registration
Beware! You may start out taking one line dance class, then the next thing you'll know is you are hooked! Many people find themselves becoming addicted to line dancing because they love the music, the confidence that grows from mastering a dance, and the friendships that start to form. It's also a great way to dance socially without a dance partner. Instructor: Tina Goins
