Showcase Line Dance Music for UCWDC CompetitionsSo, what the 'line dance' is, after all? A minute web browsing didn't help much. Mikkalai , 27 Nov UTC. I am a very new member of Wikipedia. As I am a practising line dancer, I can usefully add material to the page. Please be helpful - I don't want to get in anyone's way. The only references I have seen to "cape dance" refer to using a cape as a prop.
WCDF competition dance - Classic Line Dance Newcomer Novelty
The conga line is a novelty line dance that was derived from the Cuban carnival dance of the same name and became popular in the US in the s and s. The dancers form a long, processing line, which would usually turn into a circle. It has three shuffle steps on the beat, followed by a kick that is slightly ahead of the fourth beat. The conga, a term sometimes mistakenly believed to be derived from the African region of Congo , is both a lyrical and danceable genre, rooted in the music of carnival troupes or comparsas. The conga dance was believed to have been brought over from Africa by slaves in the West Indies,  and became a popular street dance in Cuba. The style was appropriated by politicians during the early years of republic in an attempt to appeal to the masses before election.
