Tapestry of Dance Continues with Boot Scootin’ Line and C&W Dance Workshop
 
Tuesday, July 24, 2018

Put on your western boots for a Boot Scootin’ Line and C&W Dance Workshop Thursday, August 2 at 7:00 PM-8:30 PM at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC.

In this workshop, students will learn popular line dances like Boot Scootin’ Boogie (AKA Elvira/Four Corners) and Cupid Shuffle as well as a few other fun line dances. Dancers will be given step-by-step instruction and then perform each dance to the appropriate music. In the second half of the workshop, participants will learn the basic steps for the Two-Step (quick, quick, slow, slow) with a few moves they can add so they will be ready to step out at their next dance adventure!

Instructor Michelle Schroeder advised, “No previous experience is required, and no partner is required (but bring your significant other or friend to two-step with). Wear soft soled shoes or boots that won’t stick to the floor (flat, smooth bottom with minimal tread). No flip flops and closed toe shoes are best.”

Schroeder is an experienced instructor with over 30 years of teaching various forms of dance to students of all ages. Her love of dance began at age three when she took lessons at a local studio. This passion followed her to Sam Houston State University where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Teaching Dance and finished university life with a Master of Arts in Dance Performance, Instruction and Choreography.

Michelle’s full-time career has been teaching dance in public, fine arts schools throughout Houston for over 30 years. In addition, she has taught social dance styles like two-step, polka, western waltz and jitterbug (east coast swing) to adults for recreation, weddings and special events. Her current love for line dancing has led her to teach classes throughout the Houston area as well as workshops for various ages and events.

“Join Michelle and other dancers and learn some fun Line Dances & Two Step to get ready to dance at a future wedding reception or party you might be attending, at the honky tonk or just for fun and exercise!” said Tapestry of Dance program coordinator Maxine Silberstein.

Fee for the workshop is $10 pre-registered online or $15 at the door. To register or check our complete listing of dance classes, visit erjcchouston.org/dance or call 713.551.7217.
