Senior center offers ballroom line dancing

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Senior Center will offer a beginning Ballroom Line Dance class starting Sept. 5. These classes provide a completely different kind of mental and physical exercise that will bring new life to seniors’ old bones. Whether one is 50 or 80, man or woman, they will notice improvements in a few short weeks.

The classes are every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m. The Tuesday class is for one hour. The Thursday class is a half hour. The previous beginning classes have been very successful, with many participants going on to continue dancing in the advanced class.

There have been dancers who never danced before who say that this class changed their life and they are now in better shape than they have ever been before. There are many studies that show that one’s health can be greatly improved by dancing, even if they can’t tell their left foot from their right.

The instructors have over 125 different choreographed songs that they teach, including waltz, cha-cha, mambo, country, soul, tango, salsa, and traditional songs. These songs utilize a variety of about 47 different steps that are taught.

Their main objectives are to keep seniors healthy and having fun. Call the Center at 760-728-4498 to register. There is a maximum number of participants that they can accept. The classes are free of charge; however they do encourage donations of $2 to $5 per class for the use of the hall.
