I will be postponing the in-person line dance classes in NSB until October. That's when the other NSB City Programs will start again. It's understandable that many of you want to stay home and away from group gatherings. Hopefully in the Fall this pandemic will be behind us and we can get back to our normal schedule (in-person) again.
====================================================================== NSB Dance Moves Lesson Plans The NSB Classe are "on hold" until October! ============================ Monday - Wednesday - Friday ======================================== The Lesson Plan below outlines the dances that we hope to learn during that period of time. It still remains flexible so that we can accommodate requested reviews and/or new dances that come out and become popular quickly in order to keep our dancers as current as possible. Dances will be "repeated" for several weeks and if a "full detailed teach" is necessary for any particular dance that was taught previously, we ask that the more skilled dancers be patient with our newcomers. Every time a new dancer joins the class we have to take them by the hand and show them the way slowly so they won't get discouraged. Don't forget even YOU had to start somewhere once! Repetition is the KEY to familiarization and that, in turn, builds the confidence that makes a dancer WANT to keep dancing!!
======================================== Monday evening is for Beginners and Entry Level Improvers (1st hour of the session) followed by a class for the Improver/Intermediate Dancers (last hour of the session) with Open Dance in Between ============================= Wednesday morning is for ABSOLUTE Beginners, Beginners Entry Level Improvers with Open Dance in Between ============================= Friday morning is for Beginners and Entry Level Improvers (1st hour of the session) followed by a class for the Improver/Intermediate Dancers (last hour of the session) with Open Dance in Between ==============================================================
As time goes on some dances will be dropped And others added and favorites may go to the open dance list eventually. It's difficult to please "everyone" no matter how hard we try, but suggestions are always welcome.
The main objective is to have fun, then comes the exercise of both body and mind. Dancing (especially line dancing - because of the need for memorization) is one of the best activities to keep us remaining healthy, active and alert.
Recommendation: Come with the mindset that you're going to dance no matter what you're dancing or learning that day. If you're a more experienced dancer and you get bored, it's simply because you're not using your "own" improvisations or styling to spice up a dance that is otherwise too familiar. Something to think about... Dancing and boredom do not coincide if you're truly experienced. It is "what you make of it"!!! ==============================
