What is Sequence Dancing?
Sequence Dancing is a very popular form of Social Dancing. Modern Sequence Dancing is based on the Ballroom and Latin Dancing style but everyone dances the same standardised 16 Bar Sequences at the same time. Making this an interesting and pleasurable activity, especially amongst the more mature members of the dancing community. However at YBF! Dance we try to buck this trend and show to all our dancers the benefits of learning Sequence Dancing. We show how Sequence and Ballroom and Latin can go Hand in Hand. One style benefitting the other. So before you dismiss Sequence Dancing why not give it a try!It is a great way to make new friends and keep mentally and physically active.
There are many different tempo types for sequence dancing, based on the classification of each dance. Each has an accepted speed of playing so that a typical programme of sequence dancing has a wide variety of activity. Sequence dances are split into 3 different sections; 'Old Time' – also occasionally seen as 'Old Tyme' – (now referred to as 'Classical'), 'Modern' or 'Latin' with the dividing line being somewhere in the early 20th century. New sequences are being devised all the time and the number which have been published as scripts is currently (in 2010) standing at over four thousand
