During the shutdown, she has continued her classes where students can socially distance while line dancing two times a week.
"I currently have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I am going through treatment, so this takes my mind off of my problems. Of course, your problems won't go away, but if you can feel good about yourself, if you can feel positive, that's the only way to be during any difficult time that you might have in your life,” said Dworkin.
Dworkin has been line dancing and instructing for 17 years.
