Line dancing is commonly performed in social clubs, ballrooms, dance clubs, and bars. You can also see it during weddings, prom dances, and other similar events.

Line dancing first became popular during the 1970s. However, others argue that the dance finds its root in contemporary disco while some people say it came from historical folk dances.
