Lakeview Learnapalooza Line Dancing

 I will be teaching a “Drop-in Line Dance Class”  . . .

Starting Tuesday, May 2, 2017 @ 11 am @ Frisbie Senior Center

in Des Plaines, Illinois.


When I started teaching line dancing, all my students would say: Hi “Country Bernie” & thus, the name was born!


 I started out at private residence hosting parties, local Park Districts, then Retirement Communities, ventured to Nursing facilities & many more. Activity Directors call upon me for their special event “Country Day” to add to the atmosphere of Western attire – jeans, red handkerchief, cowboy hat, boots, music.


 My clientele range from wedding couples who want to learn their “first dance” to ‘Barn Social’ where I would teach a 100 or more from the “Electric Slide” to “Boot Scoot Boogie”.

Extremely upbeat, toe-tapping music includes audience participation for the novice to the experienced.


Welcome to the dancing website of Country Bernie! My passion is dance in all forms: waltz, east / west coast swing, 2-step, choreographing flash mobs, and line dancing. Let me be your instructor for that special day, event, or even a festival. You might say this cowboy knows how to 2-step around.
