Stampede Prep: There Are at Least 4 Country Dancing Classes Starting Soon
It’s time to get serious about fine-tuning your heel dig, your grapevine and your jazz box at one of these classes offered by the City.
Stampede is coming. That means line dancing and two-stepping. If you think your steps are a little rusty, or if you just can’t wait for the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, fine tune your steps by taking one of these courses offered by the City. It’s possible to register for all the courses online.
Country Night Club
Every Friday, head to the Killarney Aquatic and Recreation Centre to learn the basic steps, the must-know patterns and the essentials in country dance timing. You’ll learn some of the most popular dances there are and you’ll be dancing to a range of different music. Yes, you’ll dance to country music, but you’ll also be dancing to funky remixes like you’d hear in the club. The course costs $78.75.

Line Dance: Basics
This course is for every level of dancer and no partners are necessary. Even if you’ve never line danced before, you’ll feel comfortable enough to join in an impromptu Stampede dance party come July. The course costs $81.90.
