      Getting healthy and active by dancing country

      The NEMO Country Dance Club holds classes Sunday evenings at the Mary Immaculate Catholic School gym.

      With a new year, people are trying to find ways to stay healthy and active and one Heartland group is helping with that.

      The NEMO Country Dance Club holds classes Sunday evenings at the Mary Immaculate Catholic School gym in Kirksville.

      Couples of all ages will be taught over the course of six weeks some dance steps such as the two-step, waltz, pattern partner, and of course the line dance.

      For the group, the classes are a big hit and a lot of fun.

      "Dance is good for your entire body. It exercises muscles, your mind, your spirit. It's just a lot of fun and reduces stress. Many reasons to go out and dance," said NEMO Country Dance Club President Mary Craig.

      The dance class sessions costs about $30 per person.

      The next dance session will be on Sunday March 2.
