Line dancing is a great way to get everyone out on the dance floor. You never need a partner when you're participating in line dancing, and there's a long list of line dances and music to enjoy. Line dancing has remained popular over the years, and almost every night club today will sponsor this type of solo country dance at least occasionally. It's almost certain that a country dance club in your area will have a weekly routine of sponsoring line dances. Even popular dance clubs will usually have specific nights during the week that play country music and variations of country music to accommodate their occasional country-loving fans.
Crossing traditional lines..
Casual dance enthusiasts who don't regularly frequent traditional country bars can now expect to see typical dance clubs hosting line dancing events. And country music isn't the only music genre backing it up, there's others as well, such as pop, Irish and Latin music to name a few. Examples of line dancing styles include Electric Slide, Cha Cha Slide, Boot Scootin' Boogie, to name a few.
Private parties, weddings, schools, and other large functions hosted with a live DJ are also places where you can expect to see these types of choreographed dances. The history is a melting pot of various cultures coming together and bringing their ideas to form a new dance style, and it now uses more than just the "traditional" country music. In fact, as long as dancers can hear a song that gets them in the right rhythm, they can form multiple rows and dance in a line fashion to many different styles of music.
Partner up or solo..
Line dancing involves people dancing in a line to a repeated sequence of steps. The steps are the same for everyone, and there is no physical contact.

Often times, people will bring a partner and dance along side them, but only for reassurance.
