Gayle:  Many people, myself included, think line dancing is difficult. What do you think?
June:  Line Dancing has all different levels. When I teach line dance, we follow the KISS rule: “Keep it Simple Silly!”  Most people just want to get on the floor and have fun! As you get better, you can get fancy!

Gayle: Is Line Dancing all done to Country Music?
June : Absolutely not! Line Dancing is done to latin, jazz, rock and roll, gospel, hip hop of course the “Oldies but Goodies!”

Gayle: Why is music so important?
June: Music moves the soul! Music takes the stress out of exercise! Music engages            
the mind, body and spirit!

Gayle: What do you say to those who are hesitant to get up and start line dancing or moving to music?
June:  Just get up and start. Follow the rhythm. I have never had a student who could not follow a simple one wall dance! My oldest student way 98, and HE rocked! No one is looking at your feet. Get on the dance floor Put a smile on your face, people look at you from the shoulders up. Energy is contagious. Make yours worth catching!
