<B>Saginaw line dance class helps seniors stay active</B><BR>Local rec center teaches steps, technique needed to put best foot forward.<BR>By Denise Ford-Mitchell / Saginaw News<P><BR>SAGINAW TOWNSHIP -- Laughter fills the room as all eyes are fixed on Ralph Buggia's feet. <BR>Looking anywhere else -- even for a moment -- could prove disastrous for the converts learning the basic footwork used in country line dancing. <BR>Unfortunately, watching is much easier than following Buggia's lead, the dance hopefuls admit. <BR>"The first part was pretty easy," Babe J. Metevia, 70, said. "But it got more challenging when we got to the turns and shuffles." <BR>Buggia spends an hour each Monday teaching the latest steps to retirees and their spouses at Saginaw's West Side Senior Center. The dance class is one of several recreational activities offered at the center to enrich the lives of senior citizens. <P><A HREF="http://detnews.com/2002/metro/0205/17/d10d-492002.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A>

RYAN PROUD HE'S KING OF DANCE...
BY KATHARINE BARNEY for This is Nottingham


People used to stare at Ryan King because of the way he looked.

Now they can't take their eyes off him for a different reason.

The Notts teenager suffered from stiff legs as a child, as well as being born with a cleft palate and double cleft nose.

When he was younger he felt self-conscious, as people used to stare at his face.

Now Ryan, 19, who is 6ft 6in and takes size 13 shoes, has won a Scottish line dancing national championship and come fifth in the world championships in Tennessee.

Ryan, of Church Lane, Brinsley, said: "When I'm dancing it's like nothing else matters. At first I thought people were staring at my nose, but they were just watching my dancing. It gives me some kind of release and I forget everything."

It's a giant leap for line dancing, diamanté, and all things yee-hah
says BETH PEARSON in The Herald (Glasgow), as a Scots gal steals world-title glory in Nashville, Tennessee.

Sharon McDiarmid can't really remember the moment that she became a United Country and Western Dance world champion, even though it was just a matter of weeks ago. Back at work at a support centre for single parents in Maryhill, Glasgow, she has shed her diamanté and yoke. A swift inspection of her office turns up no stetsons (only the men wear them, she says). Her hair is scraped into ponytail and she's wearing an oversize, green, chunky-knit jumper. "It's like a big dream," says the 25-year-old, who has been line dancing for five years.

From NW Alabama's TimesDaily:

Line dancers zig, zag for good times, exercise

By CASANDRA ANDREWS

There's something about hearing country singer-songwriter Willie Nelson croon about the wonders of the open road that makes Ruth Eddins want to dance. Back when she was camping on a regular basis with other RV-enthusiasts, she'd always play the song "On the Road Again" as she broke camp and headed for home. These days, she cranks up the 1980 crossover hit as she leads a group of more than a dozen friends and neighbors in synchronized dance steps.

The line dancer
Nothing matters more to Pauline than linking arms and wearing a stetson, learns Tom Cox for The Observer. Except the man with the beard and fake rifle


There comes a time when every woman must face the fact that she is too old for the world of conventional nightclubbing, and for Pauline that time came three years ago. She'll always remember the date when she started to indulge in what remains, after bingo, the UK's second most popular recreational activity - 19 May 2002 - because it was exactly 10 years, to the day, after the original release of Billy Ray Cyrus' 'Achy Breaky Heart'.
