Up next in our series, we have Joel Hoffman teaching you how to line dance y’all! He began line dancing as a way to spend fun, quality time with his three daughters back in 1996 at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace. He got hooked on instructing when he was asked to fill in for the instructor at Crystal Palace and hasn’t stopped for the 23 years since. Joel has taught line dancing in Taft at the Westside Recreation and Parks District and The Bank Sports Bar. In Bakersfield, Joel has taught at The Iron Horse Saloon, Trout’s, and various private dances at local schools, private homes, and corporate events. He now has taught for 2-1/2 years at Temblor Brewing Company in Bakersfield where his classes average over 40 dancers each, 8 classes per month! He also teaches an Advanced Line Dancing class on Wednesdays at Bakersfield Racquet Club. His Facebook page, Bakersfield Line Dancing, has over 1,800 followers!
