Line Dancing

There is a popular saying that "real cowboys don't line dance". Luckily there aren't many real cowboys in Levenshulme.

Line dancing's current popularity grew out of the disco period, when the country and western dance and music communities continued to explore and develop this form of dancing.

Now, you too can discover the strange attraction of this exciting dance phenomenon!
