Sun Lakes Sunday Dance Club – Forever Young

Line Dancing with Judee

  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.

Sun Lakes Sunday Dance Club prepares for exciting fall

  Denise Green What do Kermit the Frog and Harry Potter have in common? Modern waltz songs!

Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis When you have fun dancing and being with really nice people, the time flies even faster than normal, whatever “normal” is!
