Get ready to kick up your heels for an exciting new series coming to your Mockingbird Branch Library (1326 N. Mockingbird Ln.) in January as we launch Beginning Line Dance Lessons. Sessions will be offered twice a month on the second and fourth Thursday afternoons of each month, and geared towards adults who want to have fun and be active.
The first session will be hosted on Thursday, January 13 at 2:00PM, and each class is offered free of charge. Instruction will be provided by Mal Price, a retired line dance instructor with nearly 20 years of experience in teaching.
These line dancing events will offer great benefits to participants, including doing something great for your health. Not only will these programs give you a good workout, they’ll help to improve your cardiovascular health by lowering your heart rate, blood pressure, and cholesterol. You’ll also help to boost your brain activity and help fight dementia by using your brain to learn the steps. Additionally, dancing will help to improve your balance and coordination, lowering incidents of falling as you get older, but also being great for rehab as well.
Plus, at the end of the day, dancing is just something fun for people to do. Great music, cool steps, meeting new people, releasing some endorphins…all of these will just leave you feeling happier than before you came.
There’s no need to register, and each class is offered free of charge. Just come out and visit your Mockingbird Branch on Thursday, January 13 at 2:00PM and attend the first session. Then remember, regular sessions will be hosted on the second and fourth Thursdays at 2:00PM each month. For more information about this program, contact Jennifer Rodman at 325-437-7323.
Come get footloose with friends!
