WHAT IS SEQUENCE DANCING?
Based on the normal Ballroom and Latin dancing but everyone dances the same standardised 16 bar section of music at the same time. This dance genre gained its name from dances, which can be repeated.
A typical sequence dancing session will usually involve two or more different Quicksteps, Waltzes, Rumbas or other dances, each with their own fixed sequence of steps. The man knows his steps, and his partner will know her steps in the fixed order for the dance announced. Everyone starts and finishes at the same time, and dances the same steps in the sequence at the same time, sequence dancers follow each other round the dance floor.

TYPES OF SEQUENCE DANCING
The main styles performed in Sequence are Classical Sequence, Modern Sequence and Latin Sequence;
Classical Sequence: This dance style works with aspects of the Waltz, Tango and Two Step, creating patterns of movement to fit into 16 bar sections. Classical Sequence is a partner dance which uses different holds between the man and woman to create interesting patterns.
Latin Sequence: is also very similar in construction to Classical Sequence, given the fact that the couple hold each other in different ways. Rhythms covered are the Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Jive and Paso Doble.
Modern Sequence: This style also uses rhythms of the Waltz, Tango and Quick Step but instead of changing the way the partners contact each other, the hold remains constant throughout. This type of Sequence dance became popular in the 1950's.
