Meet Ginny Allen (aka GYTAL)

1. How did you get into Country Line Dancing?

It was quite by accident.  My ex-daughter-in-law was going to Sam Restino’s class and invited me along, she was going to watch but I figured if I was going to spend $3 (LOL) I’d dance, and I got hooked. Now, I teach 2 classes, Mondays 12:30 in Queensbury at The Senior Center and Thursdays 9:30 at the Salem White Presbyterian Church.

2. What are your favorite Country dance song?

My favorite is ‘Built For Blue Jeans’ by Tyler Dean, to which I choreographed Fighting Those Blue Jeans Or ‘Turn On The Radio’ by Reba, for which I choreographed Is Baby’s Radio On.

3. Why should people try Country Line Dancing?

Line Dancing is good exercise & good for your brain. Also great for socializing

4. How has Country Line Dancing changed your life?

I was diagnosed 9 years ago with Early Stage Alzheimer’s so I believe that dancing has helped in slowing it’s progress, I also had a stroke in Jan 2011 & dancing is part of my recovery.

5. Where is your favorite place in the world to go Country Line Dancing?

Cadillac Ranch in Southington Ct (except for the Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville, where we spent 3 days & I danced  with Barry Amato & the Wildhorse TV show)
