Dance moves in this class
The line dance consists of many dance moves from other countries and dance styles. So there are a couple of moves in the line dance, I’ll be stating some of them to stir your interest.
This is really simple, it’s almost as if you’re digging your heel into the ground, a variation of this dance involves bending the one leg while the other is digging.
Double heel dig
This step is usually done in faster dances. In this case you’ll rest your weight fully on your left foot and dig with your right foot twice, to the front and slightly to the right.
Jazz square or Jazz box
This step is very similar to the jazz dance step, all you have to do is step your right foot across your left foot, followed by your left foot to the back and side,
