What's the Line Dancing Lifestyle?
Learn about the line dancing lifestyle in this Howcast dance video with expert Robert Royston.
"Hi. My name is Robert Royston. I’m a five-time world champion of country dance, working with artists like Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley. I really hope that you’d learn how to line dance and experience what it’s like to move to America’s music, and that’s country music.
So, country music is a lifestyle genre. People who listen to country music tend to buy certain cars, shop at certain stores, wear certain clothing. And country dancing is an arm of that lifestyle genre. But you don’t have to like country music to like country line dancing. Line dancing is a great way to get into shape. It’s great to learn for when you go to, you know, your cousin’s wedding. It’s just a fun thing to do. It’s also a great social community. Going into the country line dance world, you find communities of people that like to get together and have parties and have a good time and dance. And it’s a little easier to learn to line dance sometimes when it’s turn to couples dance or maybe dancing with a partner might be slightly intimidating at first. So to line dancing, get to learn to dance for yourself first before you have to worry about following or leading somebody else. So I really encourage you to try country line dancing whether you’re part of a country lifestyle or not because it’s a lot of fun and you’ll find a lot of different of ways that it can fit in to your lifestyle.
