Helaine taught her entire teen years, ballet, tap and Jazz and then opened Helaine’s Dance School. As life took her in another direction she did not teach for many years and then sometime after retirement realized how much she missed dance, then started line dancing, choreographing and quickly began to be asked to teach around the Sunrise/Ft. Lauderdale, Florida area, where she now resides, as many as nine classes a week.
Helaine Norman has choreographed 94 dances, of which 2 have been co-choreographed. Their first published stepsheet on CopperKnob is Dancing Queen from May 2014, with their most recent stepsheet of Tequila Anywhere With You in October 2021.
