Learn how to do the 5 dance rhythms used in all social dancing, recognize typical line dance steps and patterns, build vocabulary for line dancing, and become more comfortable moving in the 10 basic directions. All skill levels are welcome to come and practice the Level 1 line dances whether as a warm-up and/or a way to get more low-impact aerobic exercise. New to line dancing? Get moving with low-impact aerobics (like walking to music) as you gradually improve your stamina, balance, and footwork—all while enjoying avariety of music and experiencing different line dance styles!
