Prairie Land offers two types of Country dance classes:

#1, Pattern Dance Styles - this includes Line and Flow dances.
Patterned Style consists of a pattern of step that is learned.
The pattern is continued over and over throughout the song.
Patterned dances are broken up into Line and Flow dances.
Line dances are patterned style, danced in lines, without a partner.
Flow dances are patterned style, danced in a circle, with or without a partner.
Most Line and Flow dances are taught one week and re-taught/reviewed the next week.

#2, Lead and Follow Styles - this includes Two Step, Waltz, Swing, Triple Two, Nightclub Two
Lead and Follow styles are danced as a couple.
The gentleman leads, meaning he decides what turns will be danced, and he leads those turns.
The lady follows, meaning she is open and ready to follow his lead.
The lead is transmitted to the lady using body language which is a large part of the dance lesson.
Dance technique is also taught and practiced throughout the series of lessons.
Lead and Follow dances are taught in a 6-week series.
Each lesson builds from the ones prior to it, so it is important to attend as many classes in the session as possible.
It is possible to 'catch up' if you have to miss a class. This is done during the Fri dance or before/after the Wed class.
