TO MY LINE DANCE WEBSITE
This home page is for announcements, reminders, and the occasional editorial/opinion (see also archive).
Navigating the site
The menu at right lists main topic pages, each containing lots of useful information. Spend some time browsing and familiarize yourself with the site structure.
An orange arrow to the left of a main topic heading indicates subpage(s) with additional information. Mouse over the main page then click to open the subpage. For example, the BEGINNER topic page has subpages for my beginner classes at Hibiscus and Eisenhower.
Finding the right class
Click HERE to see a list of my current classes and a guideline for choosing the right level for you. To see a recap for the most recent class you attended, mouse over the main page heading that matches the class level, then open the subpage for the specific class. Note that some levels are taught in more than one location, and that the programs may differ slightly.
Eisenhower: There will be no line dance class at Eisenhower on Thursday, October 22nd OR Thursday, November 19th
Pimlico: There will be no line dance class at Pimlico on Wednesday, October 7th
And you know what that means--HALLOWEEN, my favorite holiday of the year: no shopping, no presents, no elaborate meals, no travel, no houseguests; instead, you get to dress up and eat candy!
We'll have a zombie-themed party at Eisenhower during class on the 29th, so start planning your costume now. Any costume (or no costume) is fine, but I'm dressing as . . . a zombie, of course!
For the occasion, I wrote a beginner novelty dance called Dance Like A Zombie. The basic dance is 32 counts, 4 walls, and has one easy restart and one easy tag.
I'll be teaching both versions in my classes during October. Several students got together with me to make videos of the two versions (thanks Sandy, Beth, Terry, Connie, Lynn, and Peter for taking time from your Sunday afternoon), and of course we'll take photos and make videos during our party on the 29th.

WHAT's a workshop? It's similar to a class, with an instructor teaching several new dances. It will be fun and informative because Rachael will share her technical expertise as well.
Who is Rachael McEnaney, and why would you want to attend her workshop?
Rachael began dancing when she was four, and trained in ballet, tap, modern, jazz, disco, Latin & ballroom, salsa, West Coast swing, hip-hop, and line dance. She entered her first line dance competition in 1999, and subsequently won World Championship titles in the Grand Classic and Showcase Line Dance divisions, which qualified her to compete in the UCWDC Superstar Division. Just two years later, Rachael won the Superstar World Championship title at her first attempt at the age of 19.
Throughout Rachael’s career she has passed her knowledge on to others, and has trained 32 world champions on the UCWDC and World Dance Masters circuits. When we were exchanging emails and I told her I wanted this to be an easy level, she said she loves teaching beginners--aren't we lucky!
Rachael has won fourteen Crystal Boot Awards for her choreography, her teaching ability, and the equivalent of "Miss Congeniality" for her warm and outgoing personality. Her most recent achievements include winning another UCWDC World Title at the highest level of couples Masters Classic, with dance partner Albert Tailleur. Then just a few weeks later, Rachael was inducted in to the Line Dance Hall of Fame.
Rachael is internationally known as a world-class performer, instructor, choreographer and educator of dance sport. But she also is personable and approachable, and I guarantee that you will learn more than dance steps at the workshop.
