Partner and Line Dances

During the hoedown we’ll teach partner dancing and line dancing. We focus on beginner and intermediate styles.

  • Beginner is where you have little or no experience
  • Beginner + is some familiarity with the basics
  • Intermediate is a solid comfort in the style and ready to learn some fun new moves or dance combinations.

Partner Dance Styles

We will have three or four different partner dances being taught during the hoedown, here are the ones that are definitely being taught and the levels/expectations. You do not need a partner to partake in these lessons/workshops.
