Line Dancing at the Linc Centre

Blow away those winter blues and get into Ye-Ha...

Line dancing first arrived at the Linc Centre 15 years ago after struggling to find a permanent home around Chrisp Street. Since then it’s gone from strength to strength with a weekly group of around 14 men and women coming to join the fun. Line dancing teacher Lynn Hill describes the class as being “good for the mind and good for the body” and she’s not wrong, saying “the class is a great way to exercise and the memorisation of steps and the sequences has been proven to slow down the onset of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Dementia”. The class also acts as a social group with the members staying for tea, coffee, and chat afterwards and arranging trips during the summer holiday.

The participants love attending just as much as Lynn loves teaching, who welcomes everyone to the group! From beginners to pros, her doors are open to all levels of ability. No experience is even needed – just turn up on the day. Line Dancing runs at the Linc Centre on a Friday afternoon from 1pm to 2:30pm and costs just £1.50 a session, so dust off those cowboy boots and come and join the line! Ye-ha!
