About Line Dancing

A line dance is a choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps which a group of people dance in lines or rows all facing the same direction and all dancing the same steps at the same time.

There are lots of reasons for wanting to learn to linedance. It is great physical excercise and an opportunity to socialise and make new friends. If you have never danced before dont worry because you dont need any previous experience. Just come along to one of our classes and you will be made very welcome.

Do not be put off after your first class because you will probably come away feeling totally confused. Don't worry because we all started as beginners and we have all had that feeling. It will probably take several weeks to become completely comfortable with a dance but during that time you will learn the basic line dance steps.

Line dancers are always courteous and considerate because they follow a few simple rules. This ensures that everyone enjoys sharing the dance floor.
