9393 Dancing Post : LINE DANCE

This week dancing post & in line with 11th May 2008 Mothers Day :-


Quite common in the early morning or evening see a group of ladies practicing dancing in the public playground,Hall,apartment public hall or residential small park.A sort of exercise especially for the housewife.A healthy lifestyle I believe. After much practice as groups, might go for public performance or competition. Quite a numbers of Line Dance Clubs in Malaysia

Wikipedia on LINE DANCE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line_dance
A line dance is a formation dance in which a group of people dance in one or more lines (British English, "rows"), all facing the same direction, and executing the same choreographed movements at the same time. Line dancers are not in physical contact with each other.
In a small group there may be only one line, but usually there are several parallel lines, one behind the other. In this parallel line formation, the dancers dance in a synchronized manner, but independently of each other. There are usually no moves that require any interaction between the dancers, other than they execute the maneuvers at the same time.

Although line dances can be fairly simple, as with the 18 count 4 wall beginner "Electric Slide," increasing complexity can be created through several means. In general, higher-count sequences are more difficult. (One "count" corresponds to one musical beat.) The inclusion of unusual or unfamiliar sequences of steps also makes a dance more challenging. Body movements other than steps, such as hand gestures, can add complexity. "Phrased" line dances are written to go with specific versions of songs. Tags, bridges, and skipping over, or repeating portions of the dance, are all devices that are used to follow the phrasing in the music. These phrased dances require dancers to be more conscious of the music and not simply repeat the same sequence of steps for an entire song.

Wishing All Mother's a Happy Mothers Day
