Line up for a fun night of dancing at Agassiz Legion

Agassiz and Harrison residents invited to try out dance form

Anybody looking for an opportunity to dance, enjoy yourself and keep in shape should check out the evening line dancing that’s coming to Agassiz. You don’t even need a partner but the more dancers the merrier, so bring your friends.

Tom Selzler, who has been a dance instructor and competitor for over 25 years, moved to Chilliwack from Kelowna last year. Agassiz resident Monica Little started taking 2-step dance lessons from him last fall and has since been eager to get him out to Agassiz to offer line dancing to the community. She is a member of the Agassiz Legion and attends often the legion dances.

“It is a shame to not be using the Legion’s fantastic wood dance floor more often,” says Little.

The Legion has had to reduce the number of weekend social dinner and dances it offers. Little hopes Monday evening line-dance classes are a great way to put to use the Legion’s facility and may open the possibility of having a social line-dance evening from time to time on the weekend. She hopes people will feel welcome to come, as the legion is a very friendly place yet perhaps not known well enough to our local residents.

“Line-dancing not only benefits your body but also your brain because it makes your memory work to remember the simple step patterns,” explains Little. “Stand in a line, learn the basic dance steps that are put most often to upbeat country music and then just repeat them over and over is the best way to define what line-dancing is, which is why it is an easier dance form to learn.”

Selzler likes the look of the legion’s dance floor and feels it will be an ideal location for lessons.

Come on out and try the first lesson for free to see if you like it! Lessons start Monday, January 19th and will be from 6:30pm to 8pm.
