A line dance is a choreographed dance with a repeated sequence of steps in which a group of people dance in one or more lines or rows without regard for the gender of the individuals, all facing the same direction or facing each other, and executing the steps at the same time.

Line Dancing has health benefits

It boosts up energy levels, improves cholesterol levels, helps to manage weight, reduces the risk of heart disease, conditions the body, increases stamina and above all keeps them mentally fit (as we will have to do mental exercise to remember the steps).

Group Leader's Comments

"The majority of the class have never tried Line Dancing before and it is quite inspiring to see the progress that they have made already. I have seen members helping other members as we all need a bit of time to get the steps right - but we can all do it with some persistence (and support). Come and try something new and have an enjoyable time."
