Line dancing class offered by Laconia Adult Education

LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education will be offering an eight week Line Dancing class beginning on Thursday, January 29. The class will meet from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the cafeteria at Laconia High School.

Line dancing offers a host of health benefits for both the young and old. It is the gateway to learn all other forms of dancing with a wide variety of music including pop, Latin, swing, hip hop, and country. Contrary to other forms of exercise, line dancing is more social and can be performed without a partner.

Aside from being a low impact cardio program, line dancing can reduce stress, increase energy, improve strength, decrease blood pressure, increases flexibility and balance and controls weight gain.

"It's a more relaxed way of dancing" says George Maloof, the instructor. "Not like ballroom where emphasis is placed on form and posture. Line dancing is an attitude and there are no rigid rules or right and wrong way of doing it".

For more information or to register call the Laconia Adult Education at 524-5712.
