Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis “So many dances to teach and so little time.” I’ve said this many times, but I didn’t realize how true it was until March 13. It seems like forever since I last taught dances to the loyal dancers who stay in Arizona year-round. Plus, “Goodbyes” and “See you next January!” were not said…

Line Dancing With Judee

Judee Curtis All through this “down time,” I’ve gotten messages from my dancers. “Good News” = They’ve kept in touch. “Bad News” = We all miss being together and dancing. “Good News” = They do miss being together and the dance classes. This means they have enjoyed the classes, and they are “hooked on line…

Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis What a difference a month makes. January brought back dancers from our September session, returning “snowbirds,” plus new dancers. When we get together now, it’s quite a group! Fulltime residents dance all year except for July and August, “Returnees” are here January to April/May, and new dancers join us. Some have been with me…

Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis Our Christmas line dance group was small, as there were family health issues and gatherings, going out of town, going “back home,” illnesses, injuries, you name it. But the dancers who came had a great time, did a good job, and we danced every dance on the list! We also decided that, next…

Judee Curtis Planning for current dancers, coming-back dancers in 2020, and dealing with life certainly makes the time go faster! Turning the monthly calendar pages seems like a “week”! Well, maybe two! If you are new and would like to join the Ultra Basic Class in the SunBird Ballroom, you need to register now for…

Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis Our fall session has had a fantastic start. Many new dancers joined us in the SunBird Ballroom for the Ultra Basic Class. The dance list is growing because they know the “steps and patterns” (“S&Ps”) that have been taught. “S&Ps” are the foundation for learning more dances that will be taught through December.…

Judee Curtis There’s a new saying that “Time flies even when we aren’t dancing!” Completing registrations for new dancers have me excited, so I’m getting organized, learning new dances, getting the playlist ready, and emailing the dancers, “Line Dancing with Judee restarts on Monday, Sept. 9, in the SunBird Ballroom.” If you are new and…

Line Dancing with Judee

If you are new and haven’t registered for classes that are starting on Monday, Sept. 9, in the SunBird Ballroom, now is the time! Summer’s almost over! However, we all know that statement is probably two months too soon! The blessing is that we dance on the biggest dance floor in the area with the…

Line Dancing with Judee

Judee Curtis Dancing in June has given some year-round dancers the opportunity to move up a level. Taking advantage of the time and teaching one new dance a week has eased these dancers into that level vs. jumping with both feet into the next full next hour! This new plan has worked very well. We…

Line Dancing with Judee

Our group is smaller since our snowbirds “flew away.” However, we’re still learning, dancing and having FUN with Full Time Resident Dancers, a.k.a. “Survivors of AZ’s summer, sometimes starting in April!” We do stop more often to drink water. This is very necessary for ALL people to stay hydrated, especially when doing a physical activity,…
