History and contents:
Country music and dance originally come from America. As there was enough room to dance in the barns, the cowboys came together with their wives, fiance and friends in hay dust – covered barns wearing colorful shirts. The cowboys hit the dancefloor still wearing their hat and spurs. The „Caller“ was the group leader who performed the same movements in line, creating a new dance called country line dance.
Today there are four types of country dance: Line dance, Changing dance (change of partner), pair dance and Contra dance (the dancers face each other in two lines)
