For the time being or should be said, needn’t have to go to the States to get into the mood for a peck of Western style of LineDance & Country Festival.

Holy-Moly …  Do not need to be a western girl, neither a western boy to attend this weekend at the LineDance Festival in Budapest. Western hats and boots are a must-have for this weekend. Let your footloose, feel high and tap your boots to the rhythm. 

The annual event features several clubs and competitions. Several teams will compete in the competition to compare their dance skills at the festival. Music is provided by several bands to provide the perfect soles for everyone. The festival will be enriched by workshops, as well as an exchange and bazaar. In addition to the many dance and drinking is associated with a lot of wit, which justifies the fun atmosphere.

Grand time even for look as a spectator and discover the feeling perhaps had previously missed.

In a nutshell a little tutoriale … Line dancing is often associated with country music. Line dancing first started in the USA, some time in the late 1970s to early 1980s. Modern country line dancing as we know it today got its start was in Texas -USA and gain to be popular in 1992. The dance was created by American dancer Ric Silver. Originally it was called The Electric, but because the song the lyrics are “I’ll teach you the electric slide,” many dancers thought the dance was called the Electric Slide.

Line dancing is exactly what its name implies: people dancing in lines to music. Line dances are choreographed dances with a repeating series of steps that are performed in unison by a group of people in lines or rows, most often without the dancers making contact with one another. Early line dances were performed to disco music, as much as to country and western, thereafter line dancers would dance to whatever was played.  Few of the dances even had their origins in country dancing.

If you please, you can learn a few steps already to make it to be country-style linedancer … here you go … follow three steps in a musical triplet during two beats of music traveling in any direction. Similar to a Step-Ball-Change in tap dancing, this step involves the following three steps (or opposite if starting with the left foot instead of the right): Step onto your right foot, BUT to really get into the linedancing then do not miss this coming weekend to join the LineDance & Country Festival of 2020.

Studies show, that dance helps reduce stress, increases levels of the feel-good hormone serotonin, and helps develop new neural connections, especially in regions involved in executive function, long-term memory, and spatial recognition. The LineDance burns more calories than running, swimming or cycling. Dancing can improve spatial awareness, as well as raising the heart rate and causing the body to release feel-good endorphins into our bloodstream. Another benefit is it also helps to reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. Just one of the reasons dancing makes us feel happy and relaxed. Get ready to hit the dance floor! Dancing is a whole-body workout that’s actually fun. It’s good for your heart, it makes you stronger, and it can help with balance and coordination. A 30-minute dance class burns between 130 and 250 calories, about the same as jogging.
