Linedance Beginners (Beginners)

Course Overview

Get Fit, Have Fun: Line Dance Your Way to Fitness!

Our Linedance Beginners Course is designed for those without prior Linedance experience. We teach the basics, assuming no prior knowledge.

Our course differs from typical “beginner” Linedance classes, which are usually for those with some experience at the beginner level, often having danced beginner routines for years.

Participants will confidently dance several easy beginner routines right from the first class.

Over the next 8 weeks, students will learn additional dance sequences, preparing them to join most “beginner” Linedance classes in the community.

About the tutor

Patricia Sparks

I have been teaching linedancing for the past 6 years. All of our classes are planned and designed to suit dancers with various levels of experience. Our class grades are : Absolute Beginners, Beginners, Improvers, Easy Intermediate, Intermediate. During Covid lockdowns the classes were online, via Facebook and zoom. I also ran classes in local parks for groups of 10 dances when allowed to exercise in groups of 10. These classes were moved to suitable indoor venues when lockdown restrictions eased. Currently teach 13 hours per week, 10 linedance classes a week, at 5 venues.
