Line Dancing with Judee

When dealing with the fact that half of the dancers who come to classes each week are “gone ‘til fall and next January,” it’s easier when you know they are “coming back.” Some dancers have been “coming back” for the past three years and more. This fact validates that I’m teaching in a way that…

The rewards of learning and teaching line dancing come to surface when we have a “dance,” i.e., December before Christmas break and March before our snowbirds “fly away.” We were lucky to have half the group attending March 5 as “life” gets in the way of “pleasure” sometimes, i.e., illness with dancers or family members,…

Judee Curtis Sundays could be called “work” as I get dances and music ready for Mondays. On Mondays, it’s actually “rewarding” as the results of my “work” and the dancers’ “work” is evident.

Line Dancers at December dance

Half of the dancers who have been dancing since September were able to come to the dance in December. We had a really good time and missed the other half who went back “home” for Christmas, had company for Christmas or were ill or hurt. They all looked so nice that I just had to…

We are using our minds, exercising our bodies and enjoying each other. It’s like an extended family with life events, i.e. successful surgeries, birthdays, new activities,…

It’s really sad especially when that person really wants to learn to line dance. Please make a mental check…

Line Dancing with Judee

September was a wonderful start to a new school year. Many enthusiastic and very nice people came to learn line dancing at SunBird in the Ballroom on Labor Day. They joined the full-time current dancers who were so anxious to get back on the floor! Things would not have gone so smoothly had it not…

After 17 years I still get excited when I start picking dances and music for classes restarting on Monday, September 5. I also realize how much I look forward to teaching line dancing to the dancers returning and all the new dancers who have registered for this next season. The music is the first to…

When you love something and it’s gone for two months, it makes you appreciate it even more when it returns. Can you tell I’m in what we call line dancing withdrawal? We return to line dancing in September. Yay! Dancing spots are being saved for those who have given me their return date and for…
