Introducing Indy Line Dancing's New Dance Class!

Hello line dancing students. I wanted to take a quick moment to answer some frequently asked questions that we've been getting about our own class which takes place every other Tuesday (check out our event calendar to find out which specific days).
  • When / where is the class?
    The class will be from 7p to 9p every other Tuesday (check our event calendar on this site to see specific dates), located at 5729 Park Plaza Ct, Indianapolis, IN 46220.

  • How much does it cost?
    It costs $7 per person. We accept cash, check, or credit card. Each person will get a punch card which will allow them to receive their 6th class for free after they've purchased 5 classes. Classes can be pre-paid or purchased individually each time you come.

  • How is the floor? What is the venue like?
    The floor is a smooth, painted concrete floor. We hope everyone will be up and dancing the whole time, but we know that folks will want to be able to sit and take a break at times as well. We do have a short supply of chairs, but since we don't know for sure how many people will be coming, we're asking anyone who wants to ensure a place to sit for themselves to bring a folding chair or camp-chair along with them.

  • Will we be able to buy alcohol or other drinks? Is there food available?
    The venue is alcohol-friendly, but you must bring your own food and beverages to enjoy. We do not sell any food or beverages of any kind at this time. Water will be available free of charge.

  • What should I wear? Is there a dress code?
    There is no dress code for the class, just come in whatever makes you comfortable. We don’t recommend flip-flops or any kind of shoe where your foot can easily slip and slide around inside the shoe, but even those kinds of shoes can be acceptable for the beginner’s classes.

  • How many classes will I learn?
    We fit in as many classes as we can in two hours. We will probably be able to fit in 4 to 6 lessons. The easier, beginner lessons will be towards the beginning of the class. The more difficult, intermediate to advanced lessons will be towards the end of class. Music selection will be both country and non-country.
We hope to see everyone there! It's going to be a blast!!

Featured Dancing Tip

If you're new to line dancing, you might feel intimidated or nervous to get started. We hope that you get out there and give it a try because we're sure that you'll find a fun, exciting new hobby that will bring you years of future enjoyment. Here are a few tips to help you get started ( taken, in part, from an article at about.com )

Be comfortable. Wear something casual, such as jeans, that allows you to move freely and stay comfortable. Don't forget about your feet. Wear a pair of comfy, flat, closed-toed shoes. If you have cowboy boots, wear them...they'll help get you into the "feel" of the atmosphere. We'd recommend, above all else, that your shoe selection have hard leather soles or suede/chrome leather soles. Rubberized soles are ok if that's all you have to work with, but it could be tough to turn on the floor and cause some pain in your knees at the end of the day.
Stand in the middle. As a new line dancer, avoid standing in the back, even though you think that's the best place to be. Because line dancing involves lots of turns, you could at some point find yourself in the front of the entire group! Stand somewhere in the middle, the safest place for beginners.
Start with feet together. Always start with your feet together facing the same way as everyone else. Figure out the step you are going to do first and have your weight on the correct foot.
Know a few steps. If you know a few basic line dance steps, you'll be able to get through most of the popular dances. Familiarize yourself with a few of the basics: grapevine, step-tap, scuff and stomp.
Have fun! No matter what, relax and just have fun! We hope to see you on the dance floor soon!
