Having never tried line dancing before, my roommate and I sought out some Seattle Line Dance Instructions recently. The concept may be easy, but even in the beginner dances we found ourselves lost at moments. Now that we have a few classes under our belts though, I think that we are ready to go out and Line Dance at the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn in Renton, WA.
Many people think that line dancing is only done to Country or Western music, but that is simply not the case. Line dancing is choreographed dance steps that people do while standing in lines and can be performed to a variety of music—from Top 40 to classical. Due to the nature of line dancing, you don’t need a partner and it is a great way to meet new people.
There are very few places to go Country dancing in Seattle anymore. Country Dancing in Seattle slowed down after its heyday during the 1990s but has been steadily on the rise again. In the late 1980s through the 1990s there were many Country bars and clubs in the area like the Riverside (Tukwila) , Little Red Hen (Seattle), Parker’s (North Seattle), McCabe’s (Tacoma), Club Broadway (Everett), Jerry Andel’s (Everett & Auburn) and the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn (Renton).

The Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn is by far the biggest one left. One thing that sets the Rockin’ Horse Dance Barn apart from the other places to go dancing is there is no alcohol. It is a place to just dance and have a good time. With 4,000 sq. ft. it is the largest hardwood dance floor for “any” kind of dancing in the Seattle area.
