Larry B is happy to update that the International Line Dance Class started
at Burdoc Farms has been a great success. The class is now on Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30-9PM at the Beautiful Keith Glen/Burdoc Farms.
The facility is located at 1655 Pleasant Grove Road, Crofton KY. (Right
off of 41, or take Pennyrile Parkway to Exit 23-put Burdoc Farms Weddings & Events in GPS will take right to the location. Follow signs to Keith Glen once on property).
The Group has taken on the moniker of Burdoc Dancers. These classes are not your typical line dance class. The dances being taught are choreographed to Country, Pop, Rock N Roll and Gospel. Just to name a few of the many genre
of music. These classes are for the social dancer, open to all ages and all levels of physical endurance. The classes will be geared toward the beginner and intermediate dancer. The classes are set up to rotate through beginner and intermediate level dances during the classes each week.
Larry B has been line dancing for 22 years and an International Line Dance Instructor for the past 16 years. He was apprenticed by World Champion line dance instructors/choreographers Jamie Marshall(KY) and John Robinson (IN). He understudied for 8 years to Stella Cabeca (FL).

Benefits of dancing: Strengthening bones and muscles, tone your entire body, improve posture and balance, reduce stress and tension, boost memory,
improve flexibility, weight loss, increase energy and increase mental capacity.

So for fun, exercise and socialization with a great group of people; we invite you to join the Burdoc Dancers every Tuesday and Thursday evening.
See you on the Dance Floor. For more information: linedancenews@yahoo.com

 

What does it mean to have perfect timing in dance?

 

music

In dance, timing is moving with the beats of the music. Perfect timing means more than performing basic steps perfectly with music beats. It’s not difficult to move with the beats, but it takes lots of practice to teach your mind and body how to actually feel the beats of the music.

One trick I have learned is to listen to the music without any distractions.  Listening to the music with a headset/earbuds and closing my eyes. I want to really listen to the beat of the music not lyrics.

Perfect timing is being able to “let go” and allow yourself to express your feelings through your movements, instead of trying to keep count of the beats in your head. Or as most will say to Dance like No one is watching.

When you achieve perfect timing, your dancing will appear relaxed and natural. You will no longer need to count beats, as your body will be fully aware of its place in the music at all times.

Whether you have that perfect timing or not the important thing is to enjoy yourself. Over time your muscle memory will move more toward the timing and synch without you even realizing. Now go get on the dance floor…
