Line Dancing with Judee

  Judee Curtis Why the “trivia info” on Elvira/Electric Slide, because I usually don’t teach these dances in my classes? Because it’s usually a surprise to people when asked the choreographer of a dance, because there can be many for one song or dances that have the same name. To know the one who created…

  Judee Curtis You’re never too old to learn is validated by me when looking up dances. I learned how many “Elviras” there were, so I checked out “Electric Slide” and “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.” Out of more than 10 “Electric Slides,” two were the same with different choreographers.

  Judee Curtis Sometimes “Life” gets in the way of “Fun.” We’ve had many dancers not able to come to classes at times, and the dance on Sunday, March 4. There have been many illnesses, loss of loved ones, injuries and major health issues. We can’t wait for the return of dancers, because we really…

The opportunity…

Judee Curtis It’s usually a little difficult to get the mind and body ready to start a new dancing season. This year, it was really a challenge because of location and different day changes. The challenge was met, and many people need to hear “Thank You!” Thank you to the new dancers who were willing…

Line Dancing with Judee

Yes, I’m excited about returning to teaching and dancing after 17+ years. I must be, because I woke up way before my regular time today. It was a good thing I did, as this was the deadline day for articles to the papers. There are many reasons why people “get hooked” on Line Dancing. It…
