Urban Cowboy Line Dancing

Mario has always had an interest in leading a crowd and making sure everyone is involved and having fun. At a young age, Mario came to the hard realization that he couldn’t dance and that he had no rhythm. So he started spending endless hours on the dance floor; learning each dance and steps to various songs. He has been instructing for 12 plus years and throughout these years, he has acquired a unique style of teaching. In other words, he put in the hard work, now he’s making it easier for others to learn the moves!!

Urban Cowboy


Friday night at the 2023 Fall Fair will see the beer tent transformed into a bonafide honky-tonk! With the help of the Urban Cowboy we’ll be two-stepping into the night with line dancing, country music supplied by DJ Down Yonder and karaoke. Be sure to bring the kids early for family-friendly line dancing between 5-7 pm because starting at 7 pm the beer tent will earn its name. So bring your cowboy boots, cowboy hat, bolo tie and dancing feet as we kick off the fair and tear up the dance floor!
