Hi, my name is Rosemary Selmes and I teach line dancing in East Sussex.
Having taught ISTD tap and modern stage, I really enjoy teaching line dancing as it is a more relaxed form of dance and anyone can do it, even if you do have “two left feet!”
Line dancing is a fun way to dance and is good for the brain as well as keeping fit.
I have taught dance for most of my adult life and started teaching line dancing in 1995.
It is now 21 years on and I still enjoy all aspects of line dancing and have made many friends through social events as well as in class.
It took me a few years to convince my husband, Lester, that he would enjoy it too and having started as my DJ at socials, he not only dances now but has qualified as a Line Dance teacher too. This has been a great help as I have been suffering from injuries this year (not caused by dancing!)
Monday evening classes are held at Willingdon Memorial Hall, Church Street, Willingdon, BN20 9HT
NB While our hall is being used by the local Pantomime Society,
on January 8th, 15th, and 22nd, class will be held at:
Ocklynge School, Victoria Drive, Eastbourne. BN20 8XN.
Monday classes are only suitable for Easy Intermediate/Intermediate level dancers who like more of a challenge.
7.00 -9.00 pm Coffee and tea is available after the class.
We like to teach dances using all genres of music, Country, Pop, Latin, etc.
We try to include a good selection from the Linedancer magazine Top 50 Intermediate dances.
Helen also helps out on Mondays and took over my Wednesday night classes as part of my semi-retirement. Helen is now well established in her own right and it is now time for her to form her own club with my blessing. She has combined the Wednesday class with her Thursday class from The Fishermans Club.
Helen's class is onWednesdays at St Elisabeths Church Hall, Victoria Drive, Eastbourne BN20 8QX.
The class is for Beginners and Improvers at 6.45 - 9.15.
Please contact Helen on 07812 337418.
Looking for daytime classes?
Then I would recommend that you take a look at www.lonestarliners.co.uk where Ros has a selection of daytime classes in the area.
As a club, RJ Liners hold socials in Hailsham throughout the year, with at least one event with a live band.
We also organise trips away for line dancing weekends. These trips are open to dancers from RJ Liners, Lone Star Liners and Helen's new club, plus guest dancers from any of our local clubs. We are a very friendly club and welcome any visiting dancers to classes or socials.
