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!
