Anyone who enjoys a variety of music genres will absolutely love line dancing.

Where else do you find an activity that combines exercise of all tempos with virtually every type of music and rhythm? Well line dancing offers just this.

It is suitable for all ages, and the best thing is that you don’t need a partner!!

You may be dancing just for fun and socializing, or maybe you are looking for more of a challenge …. with line dancing, you can choose whichever route you desire.

Clubs around the country offer weekly social classes, and occasional social evenings where pupils from a number of schools join together. Or you can train for Medal Tests, and the more adventurous may be coached for competitions which are held on a regular basis, with local and overseas adjudicators. Some local dancers have already represented South Africa at international championships.

In a social class, over the course of one evening, you could find yourself dancing a cha cha, jive, waltz, or a sulty slow number, and you could hear music ranging from Ricky Martin, Robbie Williams and Michael Bublé to Irish or Funky. The selection is endless. Most of the latest chart songs have line dances set to them – Black and Gold, I R, Feel the Rush or Madonna’s 4 Minutes for example.

Line dances are set routines, which are repeated, facing different walls of the room with each repetition. (Remember the Macarena?) There are easy dances for beginners, getting more tricky as you gain experience, right up to really challenging choreography for advanced dancers. Whatever your level, you are guaranteed an hour or so of great exercise.

Line dancing truly offers something for everyone, so why not get down to your nearest club and give it a try. You won’t be sorry, and you might just find a new skill.
