New Sequence Dance Class
Sequence Dancing is one of the most popular forms of traditional ballroom dancing in the UK. It’s a fun and sociable form of dance, and a great hobby for all ages.
Sequence Dancing is a type of ballroom dancing in which the couples dance around the floor in a fixed sequence of steps. All participants perform the same steps and movements simultaneously, so the dancers follow each other around the dance floor and everyone starts and stops at the same time.
There are three main types of Sequence dancing; Modern dances, Latin-American dances, and Old-time Classical dances.
