Get ready to
For those of you out there that like to line dance (I do on occasion, too), get ready to get your “Wobble” and “Cupid Shuffle” on — but in a more “heavenly” way.
The “Stepping into Heaven” Line Dance will be from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. today at McKinney Memorial United Methodist Church, 1607 Nashby, in La Marque.
Don’t worry if you don’t know how to line dance; there will be instructors helping those of us who aren’t to familiar with the dances.
Admission is $10 per person in advance or $15 at the door.
