Line dancing is exactly that: A group of lines that do a set number of moves to all four walls of a room. Some of the dances only require two walls. The dances usually range from 16 counts to 64 counts of movements. This is a fun genre of dance. It is easy for most to pick up quickly. Come and give it a try!!

Each month many of our Page Turners @ CAMI book members meet to talk books. Our unique m.o. is to share our thoughts about any of the books that we individually have read or listened to. We could be hearing reviews of 20 different books! In the process, some of us are inspired to read/listen to a certain reviewed book and come back next month with our own thoughts to share. It can be wild.
Page Turners meet on the first Monday of each month, 4pm at The Center
