I have never been attracted to Line Dancing because I am not a fan of Country music and it all looks so boring and slow. However when Sue said that was going to teach it one afternoon a week I thought - why not, I might meet some new folk and I may as well see if it is as awful as it looks! Also Sue was so enthusiastic I wanted to support her also.
Well I am surprised and exhausted. Terry persuaded the hotel to give us their aerobics studio every Tuesday afternoon and it was just the right size. Sue was a great teacher, breaking all the dances down into manageable sections with lots of repeating unlike a few teachers I have suffered with before. The music was not all country and the dances a mix of easy and more complex. And it was really a workout, legs only as few arm movements so far, I never thought I would end up bright red and sweating - I have clearly misjudged line dancing as there is more to it than I thought. Sadly we didn't get to shout "Yee Har" (don't know how to spell this). Will definitely go again as great fun and a real workout for the brain and body with good company as well.
