You can learn line dancing in November or become a better cook and entertainer through seven culinary classes at Sandhills Community College in the Continuing Education’s Creative Living division’s classes.
For classes with face-to-face interactions, CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment will be stringently followed. The number of students in a classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing, and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.
Online classes are taken from a computer or digital tablet. Sessions are presented live, and students interact in real time with the instructor and fellow classmates through the camera, microphone or typing in a chat window. Assignments or projects are submitted through email.
For those interested in improving their talent and confidence on the dance floor, “Line Dancing – Beginner/Beginner+” is for them. This class will be held online. The latest in country music will move us through fun choreographed dances. After six weeks, students will feel fearless on the dance floor at any party or event.
Participants will log into “Line Dancing – Beginner/Beginner+” on Mondays, Nov. 9-Dec. 14, from 6-8 p.m. The cost is $75.
