Line Dance Classes are Back!!!

Line dance classes are back! However, these are now run under the dance company, Lorna’s Jazz Boxes. I am not able to take any classes at the moment due to health reasons. My lovely friend Lorna has stepped in. She runs classes throughout the city – Broomhill, Maryhill and Giffnock. There are classes to suit all levels. Please email Lorna for further details.

See you on the dance floor soon.

Line Dance classes still closed at the moment

All line dance classes remain closed just now due to my personal circumstances. I am hoping that classes will open soon. There will have to be smaller class sizes to accommodate social distancing, so please keep an eye on the website and Facebook page for further details. I do hope you are keeping well and getting back to some sort of normality. Take care.

Monday Classes Remain Closed

Due to the increasing uncertainty surrounding the Corona Virus I have decided to wait before I open classes. This will be disappointing for many dancers, however, safety and health must be a priority. I hope you are continuing your dancing at home and I do hope you stay healthy. As always, keep smiling and keep positive. This will not last forever. We just need to be patient for a little longer. Take care

Monday Night Classes – Update

Hello

I do hope you are keeping safe and healthy. Just a wee update on our Monday night classes. Although Broomhill Hyndland church is open for worship, it is still not open for groups. I have been informed that it would be mid September, however, it may be later than that.

There would have to be considerable changes to the format which I am currently discussing with fellow instructors and my insurance company. Some things that would affect dancers is:

  • Due to reduced numbers (to aid social distancing), dancers would have to pay in advance as a block.
  • Dancers would have to wear a face covering. I had originally thought a visor only, but it is looking like it may have to be a mask with the recent Government changes.
  • Cleaning between classes will affect timings of the class.
  • Handsitizers would be available on entry and exit.

I will continue to update you on the situation. In the meantime, there are plenty of opportunities to dance in your kitchen! Use Youtube videos or pick up some online classes via Facebook. There are many choreographers teaching from home. Most classes are free or you can make a donation.

Keep well, keep dancing and most of all, keep smiling!!

Dancing at Home During the Closure.

Please find below the names of the dances we have done in class over the past 6 months.

If you want to keep dancing during the class closure, please put the name of the dance followed by line dance into youtube and you will find videos of these dances we have done in class over the past 6 months.

Also, make sure you are fit and well to dance and have a look over these safety instructions before you start.

The Physical Environment

Ensure you have a clear space and are aware of your surroundings.

Move as much furniture out of the way as possible, particularly coffee tables and other low-level furniture to avoid tripping/bumping into them.

Remove or roll-up any rugs that you may tripped over.

Ensure any wires or other trip hazards are out of your new dance space.

It is probably best to get any pets out of the room where you will be dancing.

Think about the floor you are actually going to be dancing on. Carpets can be difficult to dance on as sometimes your feet stick to the carpet which could result in twisted knees or injury to other joints. Also tiled and wooden floors can sometimes be more slippery than thought. If you are sharing your dance space with your household during the class, ensure you know where others are in the room to avoid injuring each other.

Consider opening a window for ventilation if you are likely to get hot.

Equipment

Wear the shoes you would normally wear when attending your dance class. NOT SLIPPERS OR FLIP FLOPS no matter how comfy they are.

Wear the clothing you would usually wear when attending your dance class.

Ensure you have water (or similar) to hand to remain hydrated during the course of your class.  Don’t attempt to eat or drink whilst dancing.

Enjoy and hope to be dancing with you all soon. x
