COVID-19 can’t stop us from dancing and socializing from a distance!

My drop-in Sunday line dance class continues weekly. Doors open at 6:15 pm for socializing and Zoom tips, then dancing Beginner 6:30-7:30pm, Improver 7:30-8:30pm. I review some dances, do a two-wall walk-through on others, and teach new dances. Requests always welcome.

Thursdays at 10:30-11:30 am, join my weekly “Malden Senior Center” Intermediate class  on Zoom. Everyone is welcome, and payment can put in a hat and saved for me (if you are not comfortable paying on line).
