As I continue to explore the wonderful world of line dancing, I constantly discover how much more there is to learn. There are so many styles and even more variations of choreography to the same songs. Every time I begin to think that I’ve covered them all, I realize that there are a number of dances I’ve never heard of, in addition to all of the new dances that continue to spring up each year.
Country music alone has a tremendous amount of choreographed line dances. Some dances like the Tush Push are known far and wide, while others are only danced in specific areas. While some dances are filled with complex steps, most are rather basic and are simple enough for any inexperienced person with two left feet to follow without tripping over his or her boots! Check out the following country line dances that have gained popularity far and wide as they dominate the world wide web.
