Thanks Ira & Preston, we love the dance and the music. | Your Source for Local News | FOX24 & ABC16 | WGXA - Macon Macon, Ga. Healthy Living: Line Dancing. Originally printed at By NewsCentral Staff November 30, 2010

Line dancing is quickly replacing aerobics as Middle Georgia’s favorite way to keep fit. In this healthy living, will tell you why you'll want to consider trading your tennis shoes for cowboy boots. One of the most popular dances for all ages is line dancing. Line dance instructor Dianne Kent tells us why more and more people are using their boots to get moving.

Dianne Kent: Line dancing is such a fun way to exercise. You need to keep moving. Dianne Kent knows the latest dance moves and knows how to change with the times to keep her students happy.

Dianne Kent: Line dancing has changed so much. it is not like achy breaking. we have waltzes, rhumbas we have chachas, waltzes have been favorites with the people.

The number one line dance out now is the Shuffle Boogie Soul, done to a track by Honkytonk, the song has gone viral and is a flash mob favorite.

Students learn dances like in class and make new friends when they go out on the dance floor.
Susan Oliver : I think line dancing is a lot of fun. It is a great way to move to the music, it takes coordination and concentration. Diane says the group exercise keeps couples and singles coming back to learn more and more new dances.

Dianne Kent: That is the beauty of line dancing, you do not have to have a partner., so ladies can come in and learn to dance.

Ron Smith: Line dancing is awesome, you learn all the styles of dance and you don't even know your partner. You can come on here, do swing, boogie, rhumba, chacha waltz all to the music of line dancing with all your friends. Perhaps the biggest benefit of line dancing is what it does for your health and your spirit.

Vess Jones: It is helping with my memory and concentration, my waist is thinner, I am more muscular, and my coordination is better.

If you are interested in learning line dancing or ballroom dancing at the wellness center with Dianne Kent, Call (478) 986-4110.


This is a wonderful story about the wonders of Line Dancing.

Thanks to Dianne Kent, Ron Smith, and Vess Jones.

Shuffle Boogie Soul Uniting Cultures

We think dance (of any kind) is a great way to bring people together .....Sherry Reardon

Our story isn't as poignant as the ones I've seen already, but it might be interesting nonetheless:

We are not (usually) line dancers. We are a bunch of "belly dancers" who had gathered together for Oasis Dance Camp South in Jekyll Island, GA, a 4-day event focussed on dances of the Middle East. Regardless of our focus, we think dance (of any kind) is a great way to bring people together, so we loved the idea of participating in a world-wide dance event!

We filmed ourselves doing the dance on Friday, after our evening show, so most of us still had our performance costumes on. We had about 25-30 people, from all over the US (e.g. Arizona, Missouri, Indiana, Washington, as well as the Southeast) as well as some from Peru! And almost all of them had just learned the dance the previous night.

We had so much fun that evening that we did it again the next evening, as part of our "Party Night". This time, we were all wearing Khaleegy-style (Persian Gulf region) dresses.


Sherry Reardon



Our team of reviewers actually noticed both these videos when they were first submitted, and we intended to feature the videos because of the beautiful dresses and the energy and movement the dancers exhibited in the video. The videos themselves are certainly unique among the hundreds that we have received so far because of the dress and flair of the dancers.

The statement Sherry makes about dance being a great way to bring people together is timely, particularly since they were assembled to focus on dances from the Middle East, a beautiful region with wonderful people where there has been much strife and contention.

SBS/Honky Tonk has certainly brought people together with over three hundred videos from many countries and cultures, young and old. We are thankful for all the participation.

Senior Citizen Dance Group Combines Health and Community Service in Their Line Dancing Objectives

Hi Dr. Hanna:

We all have seen the posted video. We will dance at your next wedding. My group of senior line dancers were not all from my class. I got them together from other classes to help me do the SBS/HONKY TONK video. We pride ourselves by doing this project and being all seniors. Most of our Soul Line Dancing is taught and learned at our senior centers. Our motto is "Let's Dance For The Health Of It". We stress soul line dancing as an alternative means to exercise.

Dr. Hanna half of the dancers in the video are from my performance dance troupe. We perform at most of the health festivals, retirement parties, birthday parites, sporting events, and corporate events around the community. The name of my dance troupe is "RayToKool & The Badd Girlz. I teach seven classes a week. It's all fun and helps us stay in shape.

We want to thank Ira, Ms. Lewis and you for your help. There are only eight in my dance troupe and we sponsor three line dance parties a year for the community to attend. They can come and utilize all the dances they have learned over the months and years. We are glad to have met you. Thanks again from all of us. Oh! I formed the dance troupe in December 2005. You can see us on YouTube under RayToKool.

A Line Dancer’s Inspirational Story

Sent: Friday, November 19, 2010 2:30 PM
To: ;
Subject: Story for Shuffle Boogie Soul


My name is Melva Smith, and I am the cowgirl behind the man in the white baseball cap in the Kentucky video clip. Having the chance to dance in this video was important to me because I suffer from a seldom heard of disability called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I am a dance enthusiest, and it has always been my life's passion. Prior to finding a place to occassionally line dance at in 2007, I had given up all forms of dance for 15 years because exposures to perfumes and personal products other dancers wear make me very ill. So, being a part of this was like living out a dream.

To me, just getting to the site and dancing in this video was the ultimate challenge. It was filmed at a location that also causes problems with my disability because of the nearby industrial area. This video is one of those things I can look back on and know that I beat the odds one more time. I've since shared it with others who have the same disability, and the enthusiasm has became contagious. The goal was to create a group page at one of the disability websites that would be dedicated to inspiring others to dance for joy. It is so important to find something that keeps you uplifted when you are disabled. As a result, others have began to post videos, try new dance steps, and one even started a Dance Off site. We are talking about people who are rarely able to leave their homes because their bodies react to the everyday environment. To hear about them actually participating in something that can put a little happiness into their day is a blessing.

Line dancers are some of the most considerate people I have ever met. I am so glad that I found this group and look forward to dancing with them in the years to come.

Have a blessed day,
Melva Smith
Louisville, KY.

If you would like to see the page I am talking about, it's located at a website out of HI called The Canary Report go to the section on Groups, and select Dance.

Mulitiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS)
Breathe Freely Campaign

LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, Sun Valley Community Center's Southwest Festival. Organized by Alice Daugherty & Tim Hand, Kentuckiana Shuffle Boogie Soul Flash Mob. sharooni71 | October 09, 2010. This was the outdoor shoot that was done during the Monarchs' break. at the Sun Valley Community Center's Southwest Festival. Organized by Alice Daugherty & Tim Hand of Nuts & Honey, dancers came from all over Kentucky and Southern Indiana. (Editors Note: What a wonderful human interest story associated with this SBS Dance Video)

EDITORS UPDATE: Since we recently featured this Video & Melva's Story we have had significant world wide interest in this SBS/Honky Tonk story about the condition "Mulitiple Chemical Sensitivity" (MCS). We have therefore posted some information on MCS so visitors to the site can learn more about it, and help to foster a greater understanding and “breathe freely” attitude to this condition. Hopefully our “Breathe Freely Campaign" will help to promote greater MCS awareness.

Line Dancing with Gramma Jones

Hello Ira,

It is wonderful that you have taught the Seniors for 30 years. I teach at 5 different Senior Centers and love teaching line dancing. I have been teaching at 3 of them since June 2005. I am a cancer survivor and taught for 2 years while sitting in a Walker. The chemo treatment caused me to have neuropathy in the legs and feet but I never gave up. I called out the steps before they had to do them to the music.

This video was the first dance I was able to do with a cane.

I am so excited that the first dance I taught was yours and Helen had the high tech camera and the Grandson of the 97 year old dancer did a great job doing the video. I see you truly love what you do. Its amazing how the people are helped. One lady who dances with 2 canes has been with me for 5 years.

Thank you again, Gramma Jones

Hello Again Ira and Dr. Hanna,

Thank you Ira for creating this great dance Shuffle Boogie Soul and thank you for featuring our story. Helen and I appreciate this very much.

I thought I should provide more information about my 2 surgeries and a little more which I didn't put in the original story.

I had many radiation treatments, with the chemo the first and last week (10 treatments) during radiation treatments. I went very early in the morning so I could continue to teach my Line Dancing each day.

I became allergic to the nickel (not the titanium) port installed in my upper body to give me the chemo. By the next morning the doctor sent me back to the hospital to have it removed so I got my chemo by IV.

With the the first surgery I was hospitalized 15 days. The second surgery I was 11 days in the hospital. Some time later my husband had to get me to the hospital. It took 9 days of total IV fluids to stabilize me as they said my potassium was at a critical level.

I am just happy to be alive and Line Dancing.

Thank you for everything.
Marjorie (Gramma) Jones

News - Walterboro group submits dance video for worldwide compilation

Checking out the video of the dance presentation they just completed are, from left, Suzanne Carter, Joyce Scanton, Sylvia Carter and Lorraine Gehlbach. They did the most popular line dance in the world at the waterfall Oct. 11 for a video that will be apart of a worldwide presentation.

Posted: Tuesday, October 19, 2010 10:00 am | Updated: 9:26 am, Tue Oct 19, 2010.

Walterboro's downtown waterfall served as a backdrop to the song "Honky Tonk" Oct. 11 as members of three local dance groups joined for the first time to perform the number one line dance in the world - the S.B.S., Shuffle Boogie Soul.

Terry Pournelle, who instructs The Lowcountry Scootin' Boots and the more advanced group, The Carolina Girls, said she taught the dance to the adults and Helena Westbury, instructor at Ilona's School of Dance, taught the youth.

"It was great," Pournelle said. "We walked through it one time and then videotaped it. I couldn't ask for it to be any better."

The adult groups she leads entertain at area nursing homes on a regular basis. The next big performance is the H2U senior friends party at Colleton Medical Center in December.

"Dance brings everyone together in a happy environment," Westbury said. "Dance is universal."

The line dance the adults and youth learned is the most popular dance right now according to KICKIT World Line Dance Survey.

The video made in Walterboro is already posted on YouTube and has been submitted for a broadcast at the Treasure Coast Blues Festival in Port St. Lucie , Fla., Nov. 6.

According to Pournelle, that performance will be noteworthy because it will be the center of a project tied to the YouTube videos from Walterboro and other locations around the world. It is hoped the events surrounding the festival and dance phenomenon will qualify for one or more Guinness world records. A dance documentary is also in the works.

For the complete story, see the Tuesday, October 19th edition of The Press and Standard.
