What Is Sequence Dancing

Sequence dancing is categorised into 2 genres - Classical (formerly old time) and Modern Sequence. 

Modern Sequence dancing uses Ballroom and Latin American steps from all of the classified dances i.e. Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Quickstep, Argentine Tango, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Samba and the occasional Passo Doble as well as some fun swing and party dances.

Dances are choreographed to a 16 beat sequence,  and these steps are repeated around the floor.  Each sequence dance has it's own name and is danced to the music of the genre to which the dance is choreographed.

Sequence dances are usually played at Ballroom social dances and are fun to join in with. Some are very easy to follow and require little dance experience. Others are a little more complicated and take some practice.

The good thing about sequence dancing is that there is always someone in front or behind you doing the same steps which makes them easy to follow.

They are a great way to learn the basics of Ballroom and Latin American dancing, or a valued addition to your dancing catalogue.
