Practices / Lessons

The Southern Maryland Boot Scooters practice on Tuesday evenings, 7:30-8:30 pm, at Hotel Charles in Hughesville (15110 Burnt Store Road, Hughesville, MD 20637).

We offer FREE beginner line dance lessons each Tuesday, 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!

In addition to our weekly beginner line dance lessons on Tuesday evenings, the team usually teaches some beginning dances to the audience members during our performances.

Also, our team leader, Leslie Harvey, teaches FREE line dance lessons each Wednesday, 7:00-9:00 pm at Last Drop Country Bar (23955 Mervell Dean Road, Hollywood, MD 20636).
