Country Line Dancing
Wava is a resident of Frankenmuth with a passion for Country Line Dancing. She finds line dancing an extremely fun way to get exercise for the body and mind. Going to a gym is not a fun activity for Wava, it’s more like a chore. She believes line dancing is great for working on memory skills, cardio activity, balance, and social connections that we all need to stay happy and fit! Wava has held country line dancing session for Frankenmuth Community Education, Frankenmuth’s Big Country Fest, Frankenmuth Chamber summer activities on the Chamber Platz, and the Frankenmuth Women’s Expo.
Wava is a member of the Frankenmuth Lions. She has a grown daughter, son-in-law and grandson that live in Frankenmuth, a son who is married, as well as a nine year old that attends List Elementary. She has to keep fit to keep up with her youngest! Wava also tries to schedule “Line Dancing Field Trips” for her group to “establishments” that hold line dancing activities. These field trips are not sponsored by Frankenmuth Community Education.
Come join her group to meet new friends and dance your way to fitness. You don’t need to have experience with dancing, you just need to like having fun! Laughing during class is encouraged.

Krista Heiser is a graduate of the Master of Arts in English Language and Literature program at the University of Michigan-Flint. While her first love has always been creative writing, Krista was also drawn to composition and rhetoric studies where she learned how to interact and encourage writers entering the higher education arena. She used this knowledge in teaching ENGL 101 at St. Clair Community College in the fall of 2015. While she enjoyed her foray into community college instruction, distance and family obligations have encouraged her to look for opportunities a little closer to home.
In addition to her academic pursuits, Krista is also a self-published novelist writing under the pseudonym of Regina Sherman. Her e-book, Fallen Angel, has met with positive reviews on both Amazon and Goodreads.
