All Western Lessons are FREE for all PLDC Members
Patterned dances have a series of steps that are learned one step at a time. We review the pattern over and over during the class, making it easier to learn the pattern.
Line Dances and Flow Dances fall into this category. The student learns the pattern and repeats the pattern through the length of the song.
Line dances are danced in lines, without a partner. Flow dances are danced in a circle, with or without a partner.
Line and Flow dances are taught on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm and are FREE with admission to the 7pm Open Dance. A new dance is taught one week and reviewed the next week which helps secure the dance in the student's muscle memory.
Two Step, Waltz, Swing, Nightclub Two, Cha Cha
Lead and Follow styles are danced as a couple. The gentleman leads and the lady follows his lead. These dance styles are always danced as a couple.
The gentleman's lead is transmitted to the lady using body language and specific hand or arm movements. The lady follows, meaning she is open and ready to follow his lead.
The Lead & Follow relationship between the dancers is perfected over time and is the a big part of our lessons.
At the current time, we are teaching these classes in a Workshop format.
(Line and Flow) are taught during the Wednesday Open Dance. The doors open at 6:30pm, the Open Dance begins around 7pm and the FREE Patterned Lesson begins at 7:30pm. (FREE with paid admission). The new dance is taught one week and reviewed the next week.
The next Lead & Follow Class Session is being planned.
The sessions are held in a workshop format.
