About Instructor
Hi, I am Amber, and I have had the wonderful opportunity of teaching line dance classes at the Boulder Creek rec since 2007. I have met a lot of wonderful people and friends over these years. My class format is designed to teach brand new dancers and advance dancers to club level coordination. Dance is a fun way to get exercise, challenge your memory, meet local friends, while staying active.

I Believe If you can walk, you can dance!
Line dance is a type of dance that requires memorizing patterns of dance movements.  Line dance classes start with the simplest moves, and then slowly progress to more advanced dance moves. Class environment is relaxed, low key, fun, and no partner is needed in line dance!

NEW DANCERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME
DANCE is a GREAT way to get your cardio exercise for the day and is an exercise for your mind and body, as memorizing body movements challenges the brain. It is also a great way to meet and maintain local friendships.
Participate in one or all of the classes if you would like. But, as the class continues lessons advance in difficulty. This is because with experience you will learn the dance vocabulary and not need as much time to review each of the steps to new dances.

You will need:
1. Dance shoes (bowling shoes are the perfect dance shoe), or a shoe that does not have traction on the toe of the foot. (To reduce tension on your knees)
2.   bottle of water
3.   social attitude
4.   Flashlight (in the fall winter)

Dance Beliefs
A review of my dance class beliefs:

-We are a Team.  Each of us helps the whole team as we dance together.

-Our goal is growth, fun, exercise, and NOT perfection!!!

-shoes for dancing need the ball of the foot to have no traction, bowling shoes, leather soled boots, Jazz tennis shoes or smooth bottoms of the ball of the shoe.

-the likeness of learning dance to learning how to read.

-saturation point the normal response to learning a large amount of new knowledge, and that we are our own best advocate to know when we are feeling saturated and need a time out.

-muscle memory, how we practice correct movements (or incorrect movements making muscle memory) while we do this we gain muscle memory making it appear with less effort, while we speed up and dance to music.

-Asking questions is encouraged

-Attendance game with the canvas bag

-feel free to send me music recommendations having the artist and the song name. (no swear words and the content is respectful) A small description of my non respectful are: lyrics that tear down another or treat a person like a thing or object, or celebrate a harmful activity.


Future
I am committed to offering Thursday’s 12 week session April 12 – June.  I will offer for July (IF 10 students are registered, then I will offer a July session).
I am sad to say there will be no plans for a Thursday September class.
I will continue to offer an Ultra beginner class 6:30-7pm and
an Advanced class on Wednesdays 7-9pm

I am so grateful to have been able to teach line dance in BC for the last 11 going on 12 years!  I hope you all, always keep dancing in your lives, Looking forward to dancing with you again on Wednesdays and Thursdays till the August break.
