Line Dancing class to be offered in McHenry

Continuing Education and Workforce Development of Garrett College will be offering Line Dancing at the main campus in McHenry on Wednesdays, April 4-18, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Class participants can expect to learn a variety of dances to all genres of music. Although Line dancing is found most often in country scenes, it can be danced to any style of music. A choreographed dance, line dancing usually represents at least 32 counts that repeats until the song is over. It is a fun and simple way to learn how to dance to a song without learning different dance steps for every beat of the music. Line dancing is a solo dance, meaning there is no need for a partner.

The course is being instructed by Terry Whalen, a certified Zumba and LaBlast Instructor, along with being a member of "KickIt" Country Dance and former member of the County Pride Dancers of Baltimore. Whalen supports and promotes dance fitness to people of all ages and fitness levels. She encourages a total quality of life including physical well-being helping to mold healthy, productive and highly engaged people. Line Dance Fitness creates a wellness program boosting health and engagement, creating a strong culture of overall well-being and more focused energetic individuals.

To register for this class, persons may contact Continuing Education and Workforce Development at 301-387-3069. Course registration fee applies.
