Line Dancing

In South America ‘line dancing’ is very popular. There are lots of events and competitions. They dance in a barn and dress up as cowboys!

Line dancing started in England and moved to America.

People dance the same steps all together - they do it as a way of socialising and feeling part of a community, like how you might go to an afterschool club and make different friends!

Hip-Hop

Hip-hop has been around since 1980’s.

DJ's would play instrumental of a song so people could dance for longer.

Hip-hop originated from the African American culture expressing themselves.
