Hi I am Amber the line dance instructor. I’ve danced for fun since 1996 and I have been teaching at the Boulder Creek Rec since Spring of 2007.

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.

At the Boulder Creek Rec located behind the Boulder Creek Fire Station on Hwy9
13333 Middleton Ave
Boulder Creek, 95006

Do NOT park on the Fire Department property, park at the coffee shop center across Middleton, or the surrounding street.
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. (For less tension on your knees)

2.   bottle of water

3.   social attitude

4.   Flashlight (in the fall winter)

MY DREAM …..

20-30 people are dancing to music, lights are soft and people are having fun.  Some are encouraging less skilled dancers, some are feeling the music, some are taking a break.  Some are just watching the energy in the room.  It’s a potluck night and others are checking out the fresh baked goods.  Is this a club? or Bar?  Is this in a big city? No, our little casual town of Boulder Creek.  Some come to us from other towns because we are a fun and low key group of people who like to dance.

This is the dream I have of what our group can be.
Do you share my dream?

We are so close to it already,

Dancers are needed,

Can you help make it happen?

-Amber

 

What our line dancers say about the class:

“It’s an inspirational, enjoyable and energizing.” Sam

What I really enjoy about line dancing is the opportunity to move my body in new ways and challenge my brain at the same time. I am new to it, but line dancing is lots of fun and Amber is a great teacher.“~Daniel

Hi Amber: I find your line dancing class a lot of fun. I enjoy the other people in the class and it’s a good workout. Because I am older, it’s good exercise for my body and my brain.”  Cindy

 

“I have enjoyed the Line Dance classes. It is not only fun but a really good work out for the whole body. Amber is great with explaining the dance steps and she picks out fun songs that makes Line Dancing easy to follow. Thanks Amber,”

Nanette

 

My daughter and I took one of Amber’s Ultra Beginner courses. My daughter had never had a dance lesson before this one and caught on quickly with this method. The music is lively and we were able to learn complete dances from day one. It works your brain and body and it tons of fun.”  Rhonda

“I’ve loved taking your class because of the great enthusiastic person you are and you are blessed with patients and understanding. You take a lot of time to make sure your students under stand the dances and will go over it until  they do. Amber, you make the class a lot of fun and I I feel very blessed to be one of your students.  Thanks, ”  Sharon

 

I love this class because you get to move around and have fun and by the end of class you have actually gotten a good workout.” Terryne

Amber is a great teacher. Her instructions are easy to understand and she allows plenty of time to practice the dance steps.”  Betty

One of my favorite line dance memories is the field trip to the rodeo club to try out our moves!…was an adventure going over and helped me make some new friends……thanks for all your encouragement.   keep on dancin……..” barb

What I like about the Scott’s Valley class is how you start out each class with a review of previous learned dances and then add on a new one every couple lessons.  I also like how you demonstrate several slight variations on steps to either make it easier on older bodies or more strenuous if someone wants that.  I have really enjoyed every lesson.” Margaret
