Country Line Dance is an US-American folk or social dance form. The beauty of line dance is that you don’t need a partner to be part of the group.
We will learn a dozen or more popular Country line dances, from beginner to Intermediate level choreographies, so you can learn the basic moves like lock step, heel dig and vine.
Learning pre-set choreographies also gives us a sense of how line dances are constructed, from individual steps, tags, restarts, multiple wall facings and the use of repetition as a choreographic frame. When we are comfortable, we will experiment with deconstructing the line dance to see what it produces in other formations as a way of expanding the barrier or line, in both time and space.
The grand finale of this workshop is making a dance together. I’m going to give super fun creative tasks as choreographic prompts that will help us as a group, create our own original country line dance to Steve Miller Band’s, Space Cowboy!
All levels Welcome. Cowboy hat and boots advised! Always bring comfortable sneakers!
Sri will also lead workshops in the frame of Country Retreats right after the festival!
