Anyone can learn to line dance. All one needs is patience and practice. At first, it may seem confusing, but the confusion will ease and you will soon be dancing along with the best of them, ready to learn new steps and variations and even trying out flourishes of your own.

I am Shirley De Jong and I live in Durbanville
Cape Town (originally from the UK).
Previously I studied International Folk dancing (with the Gillian Saffrey School of dance) in Cape town, where I received my Bronze and Silver from the International Folkdance Association UK.

When I first heard of “Country Line Dancing" as it was known back then, I was very keen to see what it was all about. I then started attending a local class and was soon helping out instructing the class ‘backwalling” and instructing in the absence of the instructor.

I have been linedancing since 1996. Besides having a teachers qualification with the International Dance TeachersAssociation (IDTA) in 2003, I am also a fully trained Instructor and medal test Examiner for the Best Western Dance Academy (BWDA) (UK) and have been the Academies S.A representative since 2007.

I run linedance classes ”Kenridge Kountry  Kickers” for Improvers / Intermediates each Tuesday and Friday mornings in Kenridge and Durbanville. Absolute Beginner classes are started on a regular basis.

A list from some of the dances I have taught can be seen on the class and dance page.

Its a selection of good linedances some new, some not so well known but come recommended, and others not so new but still popular in classes and socials.

I am available for teaches at Year End Functions, Team Building, Parties and Corporate Functions.
