Debbie Whitlow never knew what went on behind the giant globe that she’d passed by so many years ago. But that changed in 2018, when a friend from work offered to show her, her husband and her father around Leisure World. The Long Beach-based couple were relocating her dad from Santa Barbara, and they spent six months walking around every Mutual before they found the right place for the three of them.

Soon after moving in, Whitlow became involved in as many activities as possible. She says she learned about the Joyful Line Dance classes from the LW Weekly in 2019 and decided to give it a try. At the time, she wasn’t sure she would stick with it, but she liked the teachers and the people she met. It was two hours of dancing to upbeat music, learning new routines and laughing at her mistakes. “The fun I’m having exercising certainly made me come back time after time,” she adds.

She’s a fan of all kinds of music, she says, and she likes learning new routines. “When I hear the songs we dance to in class, I find myself starting to do the moves,” Whitlow says.

The Joyful Line Dance meets every Thursday from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. upstairs in Clubhouse 6. Everyone is invited to join the classes, which are currently limited to 30 people on a first-come, firstserved basis. Exercise shoes are recommended, and face masks are suggested.
