“Good fun, good exercise, good people, what more do you need 🙂 ”

Line Dancing has it’s roots in Folk music and contrary to popular belief and modern ‘Country style Dance’ interpretations, Line Dancing does not resemble ‘boot scooting’ except for the fact the people stand in lines and do not have partners. Western style variants of line dancing include Waltz, Polka, Swing, Rock n Roll, Disco, Latin and Jazz.

Origin of Folk Line Dancing:

Folk Line Dances are generally developed by groups of people that create, demonstrate and pass them down through generations to reflect and represent traditional aspects of the local culture. Religious and ritual dances are of ethnic originals whereas Folk Line Dancing is a modern social interpretation and not one for rituatlistic or religious purposes.
