Line Dancing

The line dancing is moving along very nicely in the West with perhaps a bigger percentage of men than in town. Why not? The men in the West can dance too.

"Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character."

The line dancing you see today evolved from the social contra dances of the 19th century.
But there have been line dances for centuries, so it is nothing new. Dances like the "hustle" and the "electric slide" were among the first widely-practiced line dances. And remain to this day, popular in the social dance circuit simply because most dancers are knowledgeable about it. Get too fancy and you drop half the dancers.

In the 1980s, country music fans began adapting certain elements of disco line dances to suit the country western style. Borrowing steps from square dances, contra dances and other folk dances, country western dancers choreographed routines that could easily be performed in dance halls and music venues.

Line dancing is a type of dancing that can be fun. It is a set of choreographed dance steps where a group of people stand in line and dance the exact same steps that everyone else does. Line dances new and old remain popular into the present day.

Suzhou Industrial Park, the Chinese are no dummies. 1000 people that work here and
live near do not have to go to town everyday. "I coulda been home in 20 minutes."

In line dancing, specially the men, (for they do not have to lead,) everyone gets their hearing accustomed to the music that will be danced. This music is almost identical to the social dance scene. Then in learning the set routines of the line dance each person develops their own unique style of movement. These people will be dancing. No clones, and there does not have to be any high class detailed competitions either.

In Latin America most music is vocal. Rumba - Boleros are no where unless they are vocal. The following is way back from my time. The lady must be in her sixties by now. But I still remember the good old days. Paloma San Basilio singing "La Hiedra" was so good in her time.

It may not work good if you have a slow internet connection, I don't know.

Pub's Side Note: I have been getting some good communication from the anti rail people, there may still be ways to stop the rail in spite of all the liars out there. Let us pray.
