Line Dancing fun

Line Dancers step it out on Friday mornings with dance teacher Helen Conroy. We have  great fun learning lots of  steps and routines to  lively, uplifting music while Helen prompts us as we go.

Dancers dance in lines and all do the steps at the same time while facing a wall.  Among the popular line dancing songs are “Rock me Mama” by Nathan Carter, “Achy Breaky Heart”  by Billy Ray Cyrus and many more familiar  tunes.

This is a very popular activity and gets booked up very quickly.
