What to expect in each session:

The Beginners session is a great place to start to learn the steps and some basic combinations.

Intermediate session is where you can learn dances taught in the Advanced session at a slower pace and review older dances that help you repeat the combinations.

In the Advanced circle session you will hear dances played back to back of dances we dance in our session regularly. You can follow behind the circle or stand to the left of someone you like to follow. Meliss will usually teach one circle dance during this session.

Our Line dance session is where we will usually dance 2-3 line dances each week. Occasionally, Meliss will teach a new one.

The Couples session is where we dance together in pairs. You can ask anyone to dance and dance either the LEAD or the FOLLOW. We will usually dance either 2 partner sets (so you can have 2 different partners or choose to stay together with the same partner for both sets) or Meliss may teach a new couple dance, and we will dance one dance set.

“Growing evidence supports the ability of dance to positively affect cognitive function. Additionally, the positive effects of dance are linked to preventing more health conditions associated with cognitive decline, including Alzheimer’s disease, than other activities.”
