Angie
Dance Bio

Angie is the Founding Creative Director of the Boston Rhythm Riders Line Dance Movement. She has a bachelor's degree from University of Massachusetts in Theatre Arts, minored in Dance. Mz. Angie Rhythm is her given name by her brother, who describes her with the words "She is not only an Instructor, she sings, acts and dances (triple threat)."
Angie has been dancing since the tender age of 9 and has had opportunities to open up for New Edition, Queen Latifah, President Bill Clinton's inauguration, and Prova Brockton with the late Mayor Bill Carpenter. Angie was introduced to Country Line Dancing at the perfect time in her life, while living in Houston Texas.
She later attended a Frankie Beverly and Maze concert at the Houston AstroDome, where Angie was mesmerized by seeing everyone on the dance floor doing 3 different versions of Soul Line Dances. She was overwhelmed with the sense of community being displayed on the dance floor, and was thrilled to bring this cultural movement back home to Boston. BRR was established in 2007 with the intent to get Boston up and moving through the form of line dancing. She is an active community member from Boston, MA that is in tune with the needs of her unique community and very responsive to the changing environment.



Steve
Dance Bio

Steve and his wife Laurie first took dancing lessons together back as seniors in high school, but didn't really start dancing seriously until taking ballroom lessons in 2010 with John Peters. Three years later they had their first line dance lessons with Lestyn Gilmore, and haven't looked back since.
Since beginning to lead their ballroom group's monthly ballroom line dance event 7 years ago, Steve has gradually spent more time teaching and running line dance classes and events and began choreographing dances in 2017. Steve is also grateful to be a member of Brockton Urban Line Dancers. In addition to his own classes, he is a frequent guest instructor at the Hayloft Barn in Sturbridge, Mass and has taught at Donna Shea's annual Floor Filler event, at the Men of Line Dance in Lawrence and at the 2019 Get in Line RI event.
Steve is especially proud of the annual Boston Harbor line dance cruise he and Laurie began in 2018, which brings together dancers from all over New England to dance on the waves while cruising the harbor islands. After a pause in 2020, the cruise will be back in July 2021.
He has also dabbled in choreography, and has come up with more than 20 dances, the most successful of which is "You're So Sexy" which has been danced all over the world. His latest dance is "In It For the Love."

The interest in a different type of dance that was more inclusive to all ages and ability levels brought Jen to search out a line dancing venue.
