Line dancing is just one of the many dance routines participants can learn if attending the monthly dance meetings at The Lake House in Spring Hill.

What is it about dancing?

We find ourselves moving our bodies to a song we love and we instantly feel joyful. It doesn’t matter what type of music it might be. Just that it lifts our mood as well as giving us a good, low-impact cardio workout, increased stamina and a way of socializing with other individuals.

“It is something you can enjoy at any time in your life, no matter what your ability,” said Peter Berna, President and Treasurer of USA Dance, Adventure Coast Chapter 6090. “Dancing makes us feel good and more importantly it can be fun and good for your health.”

Participants at Sherry Kelly’s art studio proudly present their finished artwork for the camera after attending a 45-minutes creative workshop.

After the youngest of her four daughters reached the age of two, stay-at-home mom Sherry Kelly thought she might like to go back to work. She was casting around for something to do but deep in her heart, she knew she preferred spending time with children.

Sherry says that’s when she had “a bit of an epiphany”.

“I had always spent time with my daughters and their friends on creative projects and soon friends of friends wanted to join in too. “So we bought a garden shed, put an air conditioning unit in it and soon my own creative thinking kicked in,” she said.
