Line Dancing DVDs

Line Dancing instruction DVD's will help immensely even if you do join a class.


Possibly the hardest way to learn, and probably not for absolute beginners, once you get a little understanding of how line dances are structured as well as some terms you will find it fairly easy to learn from linedance step sheets.

Step sheets give you a breakdown of the dance showing you how many beats are required for each step and / or section. If you want to master the dance you can use The Line Dance CD to slowly build up speed of the dance. Try the Kickit line dance site to find sheets and tempo of popular dances.


If you want to learn line dancing, the best way by far is joining a class in your area. Following is a list of reasons for attending a class.

*Personal instruction (you will need to find a good instructor, and you may have to try a few to find one that you are comfortable with)

*Observe other dancers (most will be only too willing to give you some help)

*Socialize with other dancers - make it fun.

Although not necessary, you will find your dancing will improve dramatically if you practice at home using either step sheets or a DVD as outlined above. All you need is around 10 minutes practice, two or three times a week. And if you can find more time, especially in the beginning, you will certainly notice a difference.
