Laura Wheeler teaches line dance classes at the Dover Foundation YMCA and the Ruby Hunt YMCA. She is addicted to attending the Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College every summer where she picked up her square dancing and cloggin skills. Getting people dancing, especially those who have not danced before, makes her so happy. She is available for group or private lessons.
