Marilyn McNeal

I’ve been teaching dance for 24 years. These years included all levels of line dance, couples and pattern dance, in local dance clubs, country bars, schools, community centers, private studios, workshops, weekend dance festivals and on 7 cruises. My husband Ray and I competed in sanctioned UCWDC (United Country Western Dance Council) events for 10 years, traveling all over the country, winning many First Place awards in 2-Step, Waltz, Polka and Swing. Our dance career culminated in winning the 1996 Silver Division World Championship in Nashville, TN. We also choreographed and directed an exhibition line dance team of 16 guys and gals and competed in UCWDC Team Events.

Besides regular classes, I’m privileged to be a guest instructor in other venues, and enjoy these opportunities. We’ve hosted many of the world’s most famous instructors at 10 annual “Winter Workshop & Line Dance Party” at Midnight Rodeo, here in Ocala, FL.

Our 11th Winter Workshop was held at the Hilton in 2013. We welcomed Jo Thompson Szymanski back to the line dance community after her bone marrow transplant and recovery. It was the highlight of our dance career to have this opportunity with Jo and Ruben Luna, and to hear her personal testimony on Sunday morning at our Barn Breakfast, which is always included with the Winter Workshop.

I enjoy all types of music and I am a very dedicated instructor. Each dancer is important to me. I cherish the friendships and happiness that dancing brings into our lives and look forward to meeting even more dancers in the future! I’ll see you on a dance floor somewhere!
