Line dancing has become so popular worldwide that I am surprised that there isn't a forum devoted to that topic. Is there a reason why? I began taking a line dance class last year and got really hooked on it. There are many good things about line dancing so I will list just a few of them: It's great exercise. Line dance is very popular worldwide. Do a youtube search for "Wakira" or "Hustle" and you will see what I mean. Many moves cross over to ballroom and freestyle. It's easy to find video tutorials online for the popular dances. Unlike ballroom it's easy to practice by yourself. There is no hassling with partners. Clothes are more casual than ballroom.
