    Looks like a fun class but why are so many classes at times when people are at work?

      Seriously! I was really interested in doing it until I saw the day and time. Most 50 year olds aren’t retired so it seems a very odd choice if you actually want folks to sign up!

    Suzanne is the very best!!! Miss her at the West Seattle YMCA!!!

    Suzanne is an awesome teacher and so fun! For people working from home just take the class as a lunch break – that’s what I do – it’s only once a week. I miss being able to attend classes in person but her class is the next best thing.

      1/2 hour lunch break wouldn’t be much good and besides work wouldn’t let most people do something like this onsite…injury concerns

        What you choose to do is your choice and your employer can’t dictate what you do during your lunch break at all!!  Many people go on walks or run during their lunch break! As an adult who lives in the United States you can do whatever you want to do during your lunch break.

    Suzanne is the best! Definitely one of my favorite dance instructors. I know the timing is tough, but if you can swing it you won’t regret it. Just imagine being able to jump in on any line dance–at the club, at the honky tonk  or at your grandma’s third wedding. ;-)

Sorry, comment time is over.
