Barn Dance is absolutely ideal for people who have little or no Dancing skills because most of the movements are natural to all of us—like linking your arm with someone else or holding hands to form a circle, you see these things happening every day— for example in a School playground.

LIVE BARN DANCE AND LINE DANCE BANDS

To ensure your guests at the Barn Dance know what to do your Barn Dance Caller for the evening is your MC, Teacher and Instructor, using his knowledge and experience to decide which Dances best suit the audience as regards speed and complexity, CALLING out changes in movements as they occur during each Barn Dance.

When the Dancers progress under the Instructions of the Barn Dance Caller during the evening to more complicated Dances never worry about remembering the movements and changes—it is the job of the Barn Dance Caller to remind everyone what to do–when to do it and who do it with! This is why he will often politely refuse offers of large amounts of alcohol! If he cant remember what to do—you have no chance!

A Line Dance  is absolutely ideal for people who have little or no Dancing skills because our Callers use simple easy to follow movements that even beginners can follow.

It is the job of the Line Dance Instructor  to show simple movements and dance patterns which can fit with the Line Dancing Music.  The Music tends to be American Country and Western tunes.

HOW LONG DO BARN DANCE/ LINE DANCE

PARTIES LAST?

Each Barn Dance lasts around 10 to 15 minutes including a walk through by the Barn Dance Caller to learn the steps and changes—the Barn Dance Event can be run for 3 or 4 hours with breaks between Dances of around 10 minutes.

The breaks between Dances allow you to get your breath back and socialise with friends whilst listening to background music which keeps the toes tapping away whilst looking forward to the next Dance.
