Hi, Sarah here, I'll start
at the beginning. In approximately 1992 when my Mum and Dad
(Sue & Bernard) started to go linedancing I thought they were
SAD, and I made my Dad hide his cowboy hat until he got out of
the street we lived in, just in case any of my friends saw
him. I never entertained the idea of going with them.
Around 5 years later when
I'd grown up a little (yeah only a little, lol), for something
to do I went along to Bidds Country Music Club with them.
Since that day I've been hooked!. I couldn't believe the
difference in age groups that could all dance together to all
types of music. I thought it would all be "Twangy Music" (old
country) but I was pleasantly surprised to find that I liked
new country music and could dance to pop music as well. I
also thought that it would all be thigh slapping and again was
surprised with the variation of dance.
We now hold two classes a
week at Chesterton and Newcastle under Lyme,
It's great to see that there's still NEW interest in
linedancing, a few years ago everyone said that it was just a
fad that would soon fade out, but as yet its still growing and
ever more popular.
I do have a lot to thank
linedancing for, as well as making lots of new friends, it's
also given me the opportunity to spend a lot of time in a
social way with my Mum and Dad which I never would have done
otherwise. I really got to know them as friends as well as
parents which most young people never get to do. I recommend
linedancing to everyone, not to promote my classes but to make
people aware of how big a scene it really is, and how much fun
you can have, not only with people of your own age but all age
