DANCE A-Z

This is an incomplete list of dances that have been taught in the classes of the cactus club, Lines & Bears and the Borderlines clubs (Balham, Bexley, Brockley and Beckenham) since 1993

We teach and dance some of the early ones as well as keeping up to date with the scene - We try to get Every One Dancing

We provide these sheets to help learners to practise the dances we teach. You may find videos online but you should check they match the written sheets as some dancers add variations - and sometimes they are plainly wrong
