Everybody Dance Now

Dance Club 09/2023
Did you know that dancing has the most positive, profound effect on reversing the signs of aging in the brain?  Why?  Because not only does dance offer physical fitness, but it also plays a key role in improving memory and balance.
 
Everybody Dance Now offers classes five days a week, with five genres of dance—tap, line, ballroom, ballet, and square dancing.  The Dance Club also has SPARK, a dance troupe that performs locally for senior and assisted-living communities.  In addition, the SPARK Line Dance Team has performed in the Greater Jacksonville Senior Games Dance Competition and has won first place honors for every year they have entered.
 
We are pleased to have professional instructors for multiple levels of tap and ballroom classes.  Adrienne Houghton, a professional dancer and choreographer, model, and lecturer from England, also appears as a TV host and fashion consultant on Jacksonville’s ABC 25.  She instructs three levels of tap on Monday and Wednesday mornings for a nominal fee.  
 
Arthur Murray Dance Studio instructors, Pasha and Irina, teach “Social Dancing” to all levels of ballroom dancers on Tuesday evenings.  Classes taught include East Coast and West Coast Swing, Rumba, Hustle, Bachata, Cha-Cha, Salsa, Merengue, Waltz, Foxtrot, Country 2-Step, Nightclub 2-Step, and Shag.  Their classes are also quite a bargain at $10 per person for each evening class.
 
Line dancing is FREE and is taught by the Everybody Dance Now founder Cathy Florian on Tuesday afternoons for the intermediate level and on Monday afternoons by residents Diane Tryon and Alice Niewoehner for the very beginner and beginner classes.  
 
Enjoy FREE tapping for all levels with Cathy Florian on Sunday mornings and a very beginner tap class on Wednesday morningsat 9:00 a.m.  Enjoy free ballet classes on Friday at 2:00 p.m. in the Movement Studio with Pieta Cohen.  Finally, grab a partner every first and third Sunday evenings for lots of fun with professional square dance caller Mike Akers at $10 per couple.
