Line Dance
 
The Trilogy Line Dance Club operates as a non-profit club to promote dancing for the residents of Trilogy at Power Ranch. We provide Line Dance classes starting in October. Couples' Dance class also started in October this year.  Our club goes dark in the summer months from June through September.
 
Annual dues are $10.00 and punch cards for Line Dance classes can be purchased at the door for 6 classes.  Cost of the punch cards is $24.00. Our dues' year runs from October through September of the following year. If you have not attended in the past, you can try your first line dance class for free.  As a club, we follow all guidelines put out by the Community Association.  Our instructor is Bob Mummelthie and his phone number is 480-326-8381.
 
During the dance season, Line Dance classes are held Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1:00 to 2:30 pm. The Tuesday class is taught at a faster pace than the Wednesday class which consists of beginning dances and is taught so that dancers can learn and practice the basic line dance steps.  Each week, in both classes, familiar dance routines will be practiced, and new ones introduced.
 
On October 10, 2023, we held our first ever Welcome Back Luncheon before our Tuesday class in the Ballroom. Over 36 members enjoyed pizza from Vito's.  As a club, we celebrated the holiday season with a Christmas party for members and their plus one. This year, that date was December 2, 2023. On March 12, 2024, we had an annual meeting and luncheon, open only to members. The luncheon was complimentary to paid up members. We also put on a fundraising dance.  This season it occurred on March 5, 2024, and was open on a ticket basis to all of Trilogy.
 
This year, couple's dance classes were set up in groups of 3 lessons per month for $24.00 per couple. Tickets could be purchased online by going to mytpr.com and accessing Purple Pass through the CA Calendar. During these classes, Bob taught the Arizona Two Step, also known as the Rhythm Two Step, the East Coast Swing, the Cha-cha and the Waltz.  Information about which dances were taught each month was obtained through the San Tan Press and in the Friday push by the CA.
 
"Dancing can burn up to 300 calories every half hour, and research has linked it to an increase in white matter in the brains of older adults, which tends to degrade with age."

Line Dance Events

Our season began in October with a Welcome Back Luncheon in the Ballroom on October 10, 2023.  We had pizza from Vito's along with a salad. 36 members attended the free luncheon.  During the summer months, the club voted to expand our Board of Directors, adding the position of Vice President and Member at Large.  During the luncheon we voted for Jackie Dawson as our Vice President and Diane Stevens as our Member at Large. After the luncheon we had our regular Tuesday class. See photo below.
 
Our Christmas dinner/dance occurred on December 2, 2023. This was a member plus one event. We had 42 people attend the dance in the Trilogy Ballroom.  This event was free for members and carried a minimal cost for their plus ones. Our dinner fare was spaghetti from Babbo, salad, cupcakes and a glass of Prosecco.  After the dinner, we danced to Christmas carols led by our instructor, Bob Mummelthie. See photos below.
 
In January of 2024, we attended the Club Expo.  Many members of the Trilogy Community stopped by our booth to see our videos and talk about our dance lessons.  
 
Our fund-raising dance took place on March 5, 2024, and was open to the entire Trilogy community.  Johnny Splash was our entertainment for the evening. He brought music of all genres so that everyone found something they wanted to hear and dance to. The theme was "Come Dance with Us".
 
Our last event of the season was our Annual Meeting and luncheon which occurred on March 12.  This was a member only event and included a free lunch.
