What is Tradline ?
OUR MISSION - to perpetuate this fantastic dance form and keep and enjoy the very best dances from its rich long history.
There is NO formal organisation, NO membership is needed and there is NO fee to join anything.
HOWEVER, there is an EMAIL DISCUSSION GROUP which is of course FREE !!
What is a Classic Dance? A hard question but most line dancers would probably agree on a basic list of dances and it's a very long list.
In fact you could be learning and loving brilliant classic dances for years and years.
(The boring bit - a classic dance must be over two years old and would be danced at Tradline classes and events.)
Click DANCES for the lists of classic dances.
Are all TRADLINE clubs the same? - No - but they are pretty similar and fit the description of tradline and there is still lots of variety within Tradline.
Its just brilliant for line dance teachers:- Classics are tried and tested, gold dust dances absolutely guaranteed to be hits with the class and avoiding wasting time and money on all those dances that sink overnight without trace.
And also for dancers:- Tradline is great for dancers who just want to get dancing, moving and having fun - much better than going back to that boring old classroom for hours on end!
Plus, knowing a solid base of real classics means you can dance to anything, anytime wherever you are. Magic!
Other Line Dance Sub Genres
Line Dancing started as one simple way of dancing with a few steps to one music genre which was Country music - but has now developed and grown bigger with other sub-genres
Other Line Dance sub-genres include:-
- 100% COUNTRY
Why it's IMPORTANT to label Sub-genres?
Labelling Sub-genres is important as it helps people to know if a class, or event is any good for them.
So make sure you ask exactly what it is.
Descriptions of the other Sub-genres are -
NEWLINE - tends to be to the very latest pop music with far more difficult, complicated dances and FUNKY FUNKY !
MAINSTREAM - includes an absolutely GIGANTIC number of dances including every line dance from every genre and what's more it's constantly adding new chart and pop dances. Far too many dances for most people. About 30,000 dances – wow!
100% COUNTRY - is line dancing to only 100% pure country music, classics and recent.
