Sounds Like Fun!

It's been a few years since the nationwide country line-dancing craze hit its apex with the release of Brooks & Dunn's call-to-dance anthem "Boot Scootin' Boogie" in 1992. But don't tell that to the folks who frequent the Rodeo nightclub in the Thornton Town Center. Every Wednesday night, the country-and-Western-themed establishment offers free line-dancing courses, which are open to the professional as well as the uninitiated boot scooter. If cowboy (or cowgirl) butts drive you nuts, you might want to boogie on down, as the Rodeo crowd is renowned for its good taste in Western attire -- Wranglers, cowboy hats, etc. -- as well as its dancing skills. Live music follows the lesson. It's time to pony up and dance, pardner.
