Village Rockers Introduction to 4 step Rock-n-Roll Videos

  • Our aim is to pass on our love of dancing.  In our introductory course we aim to teach basic 4 step rock and roll moves in a way that will enable you to link them together and get up confidently on the dance floor.  All the moves use the basic 4 step footwork and timing.

  • These videos are very detailed – take out of them what you need to get you on the dance floor – review them to improve techniques and to make your dancing more enjoyable.

  • After COVID19 restrictions, join Village Rockers Inc. for face to face lessons.      Kay
