Line dancing is exactly what its name implies: people dancing in lines to music. Line dances are choreographed dances with a repeating series of steps that are performed in unison by a group of people in lines or rows, most often without the dancers making contact with one another.All the dancers performing a line dance face the same direction and perform the steps at exactly the same time. Although there are usually several lines, small groups may only form one line, but it's still considered a line dance even if only two people are participating.From the American immigrants' adaptation of polka and the waltz in the 1800s that developed into square dancing to folk dances in schools of the 1900s, the origins of this dance format are widespread. Discover more about this centuries-old dance format and how to line dance below.

Because its steps are simple and don't involve dancing with a partner, line dancing is ideal for singles and people who don't normally dance. Line dancing is taught and practiced in country-western dance bars, social clubs, and dance halls around the world.One of the most popular line dances performed today is the "Cha-Cha Slide," whose easy-to-follow steps are dictated right in the lyrics to the song, though you may be unfamiliar with certain moves like the Charlie Brown. The "Cupid Shuffle" also became largely popular at high school dances in the early 2000s and is still played in clubs.
