Country and Western line dancing classes are one of the initial activities introduced when Y.S.A.G. was formed in 1988 and are held at the Legion every Wed. morning from 0930 to 1130 AM.
The first fifty minutes of our class are devoted to the less experienced (BEGINNER) dancers
with dances that have easier dance steps and in most cases slower music.For the remaining time, we move up to the INTERMEDIATE level where the dances have a greater number of steps and are more complicated and danced to faster music.
Line Dance Instructor is Kate Pattenden
The different types of dances we do are basic country & western, cha cha, mambo and waltz
Line Dancing is taught and performed all over the world and has been included as a Y.S.A.G. activity because of the following proven benefits.

- It is a fun and very social activity;
