Including Some Line Dancing at Your Upcoming Event Can Get Your Guests Out of Their Seats and On Their Feet.
I remember the first time I tried it. It was at a company summer party. I was nervous at first—wondering what people would think. Worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up. But everyone else was doing it and I figured I would be less conspicuous if I just joined in—even if I didn’t do it right. But within a few minutes I was hooked. It was fun. It made me feel happy. I felt connected to the group and the party. I was line dancing and it was awesome.
Doing some line dancing at your party or wedding is a great way to get your guests up and moving. When line dancing is done right it looks easy and everyone doing it has a great time. Unlike traditional dancing, with a line dance you don’t need a date (or even a friend) to join in. And with the right kind of instructors and with a little time, most people will want to try it out.
Whether or not you’ve done line dancing before, we have all seen it. You’ve may have seen it in the movies. Like in this clip from the remake of Footloose.
Don’t let movie line dancing fool you. A lot of times those scenes include dances that are professionally choreographed with a high level of difficulty. Definitely not something a non-dancer would ever want to try.
But that’s the beauty of real line dancing, most of the time it’s a series of simple steps repeated multiple times in different directions. So even your most novice dancers can do it. And while in most people's minds it’s connected to country music, you can actually do line dancing to any kind of music. In fact, line dancing probably originated in the 1960s with a dance called the Tush Push that was danced to Big Band music. And in the 70s and 80s line dancing was done to Disco music, creating some classic dances like The Hustle or The Electric Slide.
