Purpose of this WebSite
This web site is dedicated to increasing your knowledge of dance; especially line, round, and ballroom dance.  It may help you be a better dancer, it may help you find a place to dance, or it may enhance your classroom experience. Use this website to make comments, ask questions, give suggestions, get the choreography of the dances taught in class, or change your contact information.  
Because a class site should be engaging, I’ll try to present information that makes dancing interesting and fun. I’ll try to present things such as trivia questions or polls about current events. Of course, there will be plenty of links so you can explore a wealth of dance ideas on the web.
What is “Boot Kicker International®“?

BOOT KICKER INTERNATIONAL® is an “East Coast” based corporation dedicated to teaching and standardizing authentic Country Western Dancing. To make learning as easy as possible for everyone, our Instructors use a time tested format, developed after years of research by the late Fran Halterman Medcalf. Our Instructors regularly attend workshops to stay current with teaching methods and new dances. Because we are an organized dance instruction company with trained instructors, we are able to teach over five hundred dances on four levels; beginner, intermediate, advanced, and reserve. As a beginner student, you may visit any Beginner Class at any BOOT KICKER® branch. Because of the structure of our organization, it is impossible to guarantee that there will be a Boot Kicker® Branch at every present and future location forever and always. After you have completed at least five beginner classes within your own branch, we invite you to register with “BOOT KICKER® INTERNATIONAL®.” By registering, you acknowledge that you have read the rules and agree to abide by them while you are a member.[/one-half-first]
