What is Sequence Dancing?
Sequence Dancing or New Vogue Dancing (as often called) is still very popular in Australia particularly with older dancers wishing to dance socially.
Modern sequence dances are based on Standard Ballroom Dances (Waltz, Foxtrot, Quickstep, Tango). Latin Sequence Dances are based on Latin Dances (Rumba, Cha Cha, Jive, Samba, Paso Doble).
Each dance is generally choreographed into a standard 16 Bar routine. This dance is then given a name and may be danced several times to a piece of music. All dancers start at the same time and dance the same routine until the music ends.
Sequence dancing is ideal for older dancers as the emphasis is placed on socializing and having fun rather than developing style and technical expertise.
Once you learn enough routines, you are set to start going to dances and put what you have learnt into practice. There are plenty of regular dances held locally so you will never have to sit at home wondering what you could be doing.
