My wife Angela is a very keen member of the line dancing in Fuengirola line group  and I asked her to write a few lines about her group, the Mississippi Coasters. Here is what she wrote:  “I’m addicted to line dancing. I started in February last year with the Mississipi Coasters in Casa Juanito at the Feria ground in Fuengirola. I was hooked after my very first class. When you get a dance right from start to finish the euphoria is amazing.

Bob Horan, the teacher is a master. He knows an incredible number of line dances. He teaches us new steps by walking us through them and calling out the names of the steps eg; Coaster Step, Jazzbox, Rock Recover and so on. Then we dance those steps to music with Bob calling out the steps on his microphone. As we get to know the dances and become more confident he calls out the name of the dance does a preliminary walk through and off we go. The music is great and when you see all the dancers dancing in line and in time it’s just fantastic.

Beginners are made very welcome and encouraged right from the start, the good dancers pass on their tips and the time races by, I am loathe to leave when my chariot arrives. Pauline, Bob’s wife is the original country and western “chick” and a wonderful dancer. So friendly and warm, such a lovely person she gives out the lists of the steps and introduces newcomers to everyone else. The atmosphere is very conducive to learning. If you look at the picture above with us all dressed up for our photo shoot last week at our Fuengirola line dancing venue, you’ll see Bob in the foreground and Pauline standing just behind him.

I really enjoy the classes, the exercise is good and it’s great for the memory as well having to remember all the steps!  I was over the moon to find line dancing on my doorstep just down the road in Fuengirola. I enjoy the social aspect as well as watching the good dancers. We also have socials, lunches and dinners at different venues.

The picture above was taken at the Fuengirola International Fair where we do our thing every year. It’s a great occasion and the USA caseta is always packed with our supporters.

I wear black trousers or jeans and boots with a small heel, (Cuban is good). I recently bought some line dancing shoes and they’re great.

If you are looking for line dancing classes on the Costa del Sol, Bob and Pauline teach at Club Los Naranjos in Calahonda on a Monday from 8 to 10 30 p.m. and at Casa Juanito in the Fuengirola feria ground on a Tuesday from 7.30 to 10 30 p.m. and Cafe/bar Bonanza in Benalmadena on Friday afternoons from 2 to 5pm p.m.

Here are contact telephone numbers for Bob and Pauline; + 34 952 93 17 54 or + 34 697 441 313.  “Come and join us they both say!”
