For everyone who has been asking about the Sway'D dance boots and would like to try them on and purchase them locally. 

 

This is a new update:  

Toe to Toe Dance Shoes,

G1159 W. Hill Rd. Suite C,

Flint, MI 48507

(on the border for Grand Blanc).

Their phone 810-238-7400 or toll-free

877-348-4362.

Email: toetotoe1@comcast.net

Website: www.toe2toe.com 

You can also get other kinds of dance shoes, (Jazz, ballroom, ballet, tap, etc.) 

 

They had my Sway'D color and size in stock. 

The staff was great and very helpful. 

Go visit and tell them I sent you.

 

(Their store is in a long building and is the last door at the end.  Use your GPS) 

*********************************************

To order directly from Sway'D's website: 

https://www.swaydshoes.com

 

Sometimes they have special prices! 

 

The website says your size may be back-ordered 4-6 weeks but I ordered a pair on Cyber Monday and received them on Thursday, only 4 days.

 

******************************************************************************

I'm adding a link here for Dance Sliders for those who have asked.  You'll buy them from the seller through eBay.  The cost is $15.00 plus shipping.  Make sure you check and order the right size for your shoes as well as whether you want the heal covered or not. (I personally recommend the open heal, not covered) They don't fall off like some of the other dance socks. These are great if you want to wear something other than dance shoes or you dance somewhere where the floor is not ideal. I recently went to a dance with a sticky (dirty) floor and was able to dance easily. I just slipped them on over my dance shoes and washed them in the washing machine later. eBay Link for Dance Sliders You'll love them!! I have several pairs so I can always have a clean pair. Important: Take care of them the way she tells you and they will last much longer. (personal experience) 

 

I'm also adding a link to Dance Socks website. For a different option and they come in different colors too. You can wear your street shoes or tennis shoes and be able to dance easily. Link to website

 

The classes on Monday & Wednesday evenings are progressive classes. On Mondays from 6:00 pm to 6:30 pm (approx) is the EZ beginner part where I teach the same EZ dances each week so you get comfortable with the dances and steps. On Monday (am & pm),  & Wednesday evenings the class moves into other beginner dances, improver, and up to intermediate/advanced dances so there is something for everyone. As you get more comfortable with steps/dances you can dance longer & learn more dances.

The new playlist will be posted before the next dance. I'll also play as many requests as I can fit in.  

 

Some class costs have changed. If you don't see it posted please ask. See the "Class Locations" page for more information. 

 

We have our social dance at the Round-Up in Waterford, 5050 Dixie Hwy. (see Current Locations page for a map). Time is Noon to 4:00 pm on the 2nd Saturday each month. Cost... Only $10.  The playlist will be available before each dance which I'll add to the website for you to print (Click on the playlist above). Come and join the fun with Another Chance to Dance.

Projected dates for 2021February 13, March 13, April 10, May 1 (first Saturday), June 12, July 10, August 14, September 11, October 9, November 6, December 11. 

 

 The Round-Up, 5050 Dixie Hwy in Waterford. It's in the K-Mart plaza on the east side of the street north of Williams Lake and south of Andersonville Rd. We really like it there it's very nice. Wood Floor! (and they've already expanded it) There will be water, sodas, hot dogs & snacks for sale (now reduced prices). There is no alcohol allowed. (If there are snacks you'd like let me know and I'll see about having them carry them for us.) Please, give them your support, we love a good place to dance and want to see them continue in business.  

 

I've added a link to a Free Office program on the first Step Sheets page (A-E). If you can't open the documents on this website because you don't have an Office program this is a free alternative for you.  Download the program to a place on your computer you'll remember (examples: Downloads folder, Programs, or your Desktop) then open it so you can install it. It will tell you what to do. 

 

Just a reminder as businesses sometimes close down ( burn down) or discontinue classes....  if you don't support the things you like, they will be gone. If you take a dance class, even if it's not one of mine, go as regular as you can and support the business where you dance because it could be gone tomorrow. 

Line Dance Lessons, Southeast Michigan

 

Whether you are looking for a beginner class, Intermediate, advanced, or anything in between, I have a class for you.

What Dancing can do for you.

In an earlier issue of the NTA newsletter, the following was shared and I feel it is worth sharing with all of you. Great information to keep in mind.


1.Increased muscle strength & endurance.

2.Increased energy.

3.The release of endorphins that give us a better outlook & make us "feel better" with a decrease in anxiety & depression type symptoms.

4. Chiropractic professionals encourage low-impact exercise as a necessity for keeping your spine healthy.

5. Movement lubricates the joints so that they move more freely.

6. The motion of the joints improves flexibility reducing the chance for injury.

7. Increased muscle strength leads to better posture and increased range of motion.

8.Can reduce the chances of having a heart attack, stroke, diabetes, & even some types of cancer.
