What is Line Dancing
As its name implies, line dancing is when people dance in lines to music. Line dances are choreographed dances with a repeated sequence of steps, with groups of people in lines or rows performing the steps in unison without them touching or making contact with each other. Performers in a line dance often face the same direction and dance the exact same steps at the same time. Even with only two people participating, it will still be considered line dancing if it adheres to the definition above.
Line dancing is believed to have originated from folk dancing because of some similarities. with the steps. Because line dancing tends to have simple steps and does not require a partner, it is the perfect dance for singles and even non-dancers. It is taught and performed in so many country and western dance bars, dance halls, and social clubs across the world. It is a fun and exciting dance form that is definitely not going anywhere anytime soon!
