Line Dance

What’s Line Dancing?
Very simply, dancers all do the same pattern of steps to music while being in lines. Partners are not needed.

Why people like line dancing:
It’s fun! It provides exercise! It’s a challenge to try something new! You make friends with community members!LineDance_performance
