WHAT IS SEQUENCE DANCING?
Sequence Dancing is a form of social dancing which comprises a wide variety of rhythms from both the Standard Ballroom and Latin American sections such as the Tango, Quickstep, Salsa, Rumba etc.
Couples are taught set sequences of 16 bars of music consisting of amalgamations of steps and figures under a given name e.g.Chino Cha Cha Cha or Woodside Waltz. The sequence is recognised by the name of the dance. Everyone dances the same sequence at the same time and repeats it in an anti clockwise direction on the dance floor for as long as the chosen tunes for that particular dance last.
