About the course

These two country line dance workshops are held on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. Popular social line dances are taught. In both workshops the steps and dance sequence are taught and practiced before dancing to music. Often a dance is done to both a slower and a faster song.

The first workshop is at the beginner level. Basic line dance steps are introduced/reviewed at the beginning of the workshop. The dances sequences are relatively short and almost all of the dances are either 1-wall or 2-wall. The instructor cues each step as it comes up.

The second workshop is at an in intermediate level. The dance sequences are longer and often are danced to all 4 walls. Previous line dance experience is recommended for the intermediate workshop.

Dancing boots are welcome but not required.
