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…

When you have such nice people attending your classes and consider them extended family and friends, it is very sad to have one pass away. This beautiful lady, Suzanne Strasser, a/k/a “My Movie Star Dancer” who started dancing with me in 2000 at the Chandler Senior Center passed away December 3, 2016. She regularly attended…

A few classes in June were cancelled because my husband had a hip replacement. New procedures make this surgery amazing with a speedy recovery. I’ve had several dancers with hip or knee replacements and other medical issues. When line dancing helps dancers forget their physical pain, it’s such good feeling for all involved. Line dancing also…

Judee Curtis We are fortunate to continue classes through June even if it’s a little warm and windy outside. God bless AC! The year round line dancers are now able to dance the dances learned with ease and have found it’s fun to try different songs with dances they’ve been doing. By doing these changes,…

Judee Curtis The sad days of line dancing are upon us. The dancers who have been dancing with me/us for several years and returned in the New Year are leaving again. The happy days will be when we see them along with the new dancers who will also be returning. The continuing happy days are…
