Modern Sequence Dancing
Sequence dancing is a combination of figures and movements from the Waltz, Quickstep, Tango, Foxtrot, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba etc. arranged in a repeatable group or sequence. This type of dancing also includes Old Time dances such as Old Time Waltz, Two-Steps, Blues, Saunters, Swings etc.
When dancing sequence, all couples dance around the ballroom anticlockwise, dancing the same sequence as each other at the same time, almost as if in formation. The sequence is a fairly short routine of approximately 10 technical figures or 40 steps arranged within 16 bars of dance music which is repeated until the music ends.
New dances have to have won a major inventive dance competition. Each dance has an exclusive name. Some, for example, Sindy Swing, Balmoral Blues, Waltz Catherine, Melody Foxtrot, Tango Serida, Rumba One, Saunter Together, Square Tango, Lilac Waltz, Sally Ann Cha Cha Cha, Mayfair Quickstep, have been around for many years, but new dances are being created and scripted all the time.
Newer dances that we have taught include, White City Waltz, Queen of Hearts Rumba, Tina Tango, Rumba Deargo, Variety Swing, Tayside Tango, Welcome Waltz, Saunter Shiraz, Viennese Swing, Sweet Bay Salsa and Let's Swing.
