Testimonial

Denise, Thank you for a wonderful year of providing exercise through dance, keeping our minds sharp with exciting routines, promoting a cheerful and happy place to make friends, and most of all for keeping us feeling young at heart. I am blessed to experience all of these things in your line dance classes. You are THE BEST, Merry Christmas, Daphne Van Buren
 
HTLC Youth Group - Texas Line Dancing & BBQ... 
Denise came to our church in November as part of a fundraiser for our youth to go to Houston, Texas as a service project. Denise and her staff were excellent. The line dancing steps were easy to follow and we all had a blast. There are several of us who are going to attend her Senior Dance Classes in the area. You could feel the love of the Lord from Denise and her staff. If you have the opportunity to book her for your event - you will LOVE it!!

Dear Ms Bryant,
My wife and  I began coming to your Line Dance Class during late summer of 2017.  We took dance classes in Southern California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and other classes here in Maryland.  I am writing to compliment your Up Beat, and Considerate Teaching Methods for your JAMMIN' DANCES.  My wife and I finally found the right place and the right Dance Instructor.  We want to compliment all of your Assistants for their extreme patience with those of us who are a little slower than others, too.(smiling)  Thank you for all you are doing for the Senior Population.

Respectfully,
Bob and Valora Johnson
Lanham Community Center

A Better You Series - 
10 Ways to survive the Thanksgiving Food Coma 

 
   

Gravy-drenched drumsticks, buttery mashed potatoes, and gooey pecan pie all sound scrumptious - until you think about what they'll do to your waistline. While you shouldn't deprive yourself of all your favorite Thanksgiving staples, cutting back just a little and making some smart swaps can go a long way in maintaining the physique you've worked hard to build. Try these 10 tips to make it through turkey day without feeling like a stuffed...  you know - in a coma.
 
1. Eat before Eating.
Yes, you read that correctly! Showing up for the feast with a rumbling tummy is a recipe for over-eating, so be sure to pre-game by having a nutritious, low-cal snack. A bowl of vegetable soup about one hour before mealtime should help tame your hunger, says Sonya Angelone, R.D., a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Picking at an appetizer veggie platter is a good option as well.
  
2. Wear your Diva Attire.
Save your baggy, comfy clothes for another occasion. Instead, break out a form-fitting garment - think skinny jeans or a curve-hugging dress. "You'll be less likely to overeat if you're wearing something a little snug, because you'll start feeling uncomfortable more quickly," says Keri Gans, R.D., author of The Small Change Diet. If you can make it through the meal without having to undo the top button of your pants, you're in good shape.

3. Make it personal.
Want to be the perfect host? Add flair to the table and stop everyone, including yourself, from overdoing it by offering individual portions of the fattiest items on the menu, suggests Jackie Newgent, R.D., culinary nutritionist and author of The With or Without Meat Cookbook. "For instance, bake stuffing in cups of a muffin pan; make sweet potato or green bean casserole in individual ramekins; ladle creamy soups into espresso cups; or serve gravy or rich salad dressing in shot glasses." Pre-sizing eliminates the opportunity to pile those taters too high.

4. Be picky - don't waste calories.
Before sitting down at the dinner table, have a few favorites foods in mind that you plan to indulge in   - and don't be afraid to change course if the first taste proves to be more "meh" than marvelous. "If it isn't everything you'd hoped it would be, don't waste calories by having another bite," says Elisa Zied, R.D., author of Younger Next Week. "Try something different." Wouldn't you rather fill up on yummy fare rather than an average dish?

5. Fake the mashed potatoes.
Can't limit yourself to a small scoop of these buttery spuds? Then bypass them entirely in favor of cauliflower. "For a delicious stand-in, boil cauliflower, mash it, and add a little skim milk, lemon and garlic," say Tammy Lakatos Shames, R.D., and Lyssie Lakatos, R.D., aka " The Nutrition Twins." The similar texture and color will trick you into thinking you're getting the real thing.

6. Booze or sugar.
Cocktails and dessert are usually both laden with sugar and calories, so pick a singular indulgence - but still be mindful of serving sizes. Think one small piece of pie or a half-cup of eggnog, says Zied, will do the trick.

7. Mix up a special low-calorie cocktail.
If liquor and dessert are equally essential to you enjoying the holiday, at least choose your libation wisely. For a mere 45 calories you can have a "Fruity Tooty Spritzer," say Lakatos and Lakatos Shames:  Simply combine 1 cup sparkling water, 2 ounces vodka, 1 tablespoon grapefruit juice and 6 raspberries. Garnish with fresh mint leaves. For more better-for-you beverages, check out these 10 Healthy Holiday Cocktail Recipes.

8. Eat colorful plates.
Leave the fancy white china in the cabinet. "You'll likely eat more when light-colored foods, such as turkey and mashed potatoes, are served on white or cream plates," says Newgent. " Research has found that the more contrast between your food and plate color, the less you'll likely eat - or overeat." Bring on the bolds!

9. Fill up on appetizers.
If you tend to inhale your food without realizing how much you consumed, opt for nibbles like in-shell pistachio nuts. "Their empty shells are a helpful visual cue about how much you've eaten, potentially encouraging you to eat less," says Ansel. Chicken satay and shrimp cocktail are also good options, as you can watch the skewers and tails stack up.

10. Volunteer to be on the cleanup crew.
"One hour spent clearing the table and washing dishes while you're standing can whittle off about 100 calories," says Newgent. Plus your host will be grateful!
 

Here's to your health!
