Free dance nights now available at Willy J's

A good way to stay in shape is to go dancing. Area residents don’t have to go far to do that. Willy J’s in Marion is hosting line-dancing sessions at 7 p.m. every other Tuesday.

Willy J’s is adjacent to SherBowl Lanes at 131 S. Thorp St.

There is no charge to attend the informal sessions. Greta Smith and Leah Schmidt are leaders.

According to manager Donna Sherbert, those attending the dances have the opportunity themselves to teach new line dances to the others.

Sherbert said participants are mostly women but some men like to come and watch.

The dances are to various styles of music. Disc jockey Brent Sanders of Hillsboro, known as “Keebler,” a Karaoke leader, has begun attending the sessions and providing the music.

The next dance night is scheduled for May 11. To confirm this date, contact Sherbert at (620) 382-2630.
