                                          Week of 02/27 - dancing at All Faith Church                                 

The Southern Maryland Boot Scooters practice at Hotel Charles in Hughesville.

The Southern Maryland Boot Scooters practice on Wednesday evenings, 7:30-9:00 pm, at Hotel Charles in Hughesville (15110 Burnt Store Road, Hughesville, MD 20637).

We offer FREE beginner line dance lessons each Wednesday, 7:00-7:30 pm prior to our practice. Anyone is welcome to come to the lessons and to stay for our practice to watch or even join in. Remember ... if you can count to 8, you can line dance!

The team also holds practices on Tuesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 pm, at Hotel Charles for those who cannot make the Wednesday practice or who want additional practice (or just an additional opportunity to dance!). There are no beginner lessons on Tuesdays.

Team leader Leslie Harvey often is available for additional practices on Monday evenings,  7:00-9:00 pm, at All Faith Church in Mechanicsville (38885 New Market Turner Road,
Mechanicsville, MD 20659). There is a $5 per person charge for dancing on Mondays to compensate the church for use of the room.

Please check for notifications at the top of this page (they will appear in green type) about changes to the week's practice schedule.

Line Dance Lessons

In addition to our weekly beginner line dance lessons on Wednesday evenings, the team usually teaches some beginning dances to the audience members during our performances. Also, we have in the past taught intermediate and advanced lessons during free workshops offered through Charles County Parks and Recreation. If these workshops are again offered in the future, a workshop schedule will be posted on this website.
