What’s New Wednesday: Jackson Ballroom Dance Club


Take a partner and put on your dancing shoes! Every Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. you can learn ballroom dancing at Jackson Sport and Fitness.

“To share the love of dance with the community and most of all to have the hope of entertaining the lives of others,” said Sarah Estes, vice president of the Jackson Ballroom Dance Club.

Londa and Charlie Rohfling moved to the central town of Illnois. They have been dancing for 25 years. They joined the non-profit Jackson Ballroom Dance Club 2 years ago.

“We wouldn’t have chosen Jackson for our new home if it hadn’t been for ballroom dancing here,” Londa said.

“It’s an opportunity to meet new people in the community,” Charlie said.

For just $ 2, you can be outside of the classroom and learn all types of ballroom dancing.

“So that includes the waltz, the fox trot, the tango and the Viennese waltz. It includes the Rumba, the Cha-cha. Salsa, Mambo and East Coast Swing and West Coast Swing, ”Estes said. “We can work with anyone who is afraid to dance. If they say they have 2 left feet, we can work with that.

“If you don’t use it, you lose it!” Londa laughed.

The first course is free. All classes are inside Jackson Sport and Fitness on Vann Drive. You don’t need to be a gym member to attend. They also offer intermediate classes on Tuesdays.
