Soul Line Dancing brings a cultural connection that traces its roots to Africa and the Caribbean. The simplest definition of this form of dance is choreographed line dancing to R&B and hip-hop songs. The group element of these dances makes them a hit for large parties like weddings or other larger get-togethers. Designed with beginners in mind, participants of all skill levels and ages are encouraged to enroll, meaning no one is left out of the fun. The class is also a great opportunity to deliver on those new year’s resolutions to be more active, while learning some truly unique dance moves.
