A dance class for seniors that draws from disco, line dancing, and modern movement. For those who just like to groove around the house, and for those brushing up for your grandkids’ wedding, this class will offer choreography with variations for all abilities. We’ll dance in socks, bare feet, or dance shoes to music from the 40’s through 80’s. Please note, the class is up one flight of stairs.
