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…

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,…

We’re already looking forward to when the snowbirds return, but in the meantime, we “fulltime residents” keep on learning and dancing line dances. We’re just happy we are an “indoor activity with A/C.” We don’t dance in July and August. We return on Monday, September 2, 2019 (yes, Labor Day). If you would like to…

The dancers in the picture did a great job line dancing in the SunBird Ballroom at their annual March dance. Many of the class members had company, were out of town or sick and couldn’t join us, and we missed them.

At the break when the dancers vie for prizes, we take the group picture. I was surprised by receiving a banner with a beautiful message: “Thank you for the music! We love you, Judee!!” They were surprised when I was speechless! They all thought it was a miracle. But I recovered! Just before the break,…

Line Dancing with Judee

  The current year-round line dancers who’ve been with me for years, the new year-round dancers, plus the “coming back” dancers, aka “snowbirds” for years have always been appreciated. Even more so with my “new hiccup.” It (the hiccup) can be called several things besides “annoying” and “a little painful.” “Bad bones” and “old age”…

What a great start for the New Year 2019! Doubling the number of dancers doubles the amount of teaching and learning, exercising minds and bodies, listening and dancing to great music and having fun with some of the nicest people! You never know how a dance is going to “go over.” When you see the…

Thank you to the dancers who came to our Christmas Line Dance on Sunday, December 9. We had a really great time dancing all three levels. It’s nice for dancers to see dances at higher levels. It gives everyone an opportunity to realize there are only so many things you can do with your feet,…
