Sequence dancing is a form of dance in which a predetermined pattern of movements is followed.  It's origins can be found in London in the early 1900s.  Much of ballroom dancing is a form of sequence dancing.

Modern sequence dancing has a repeat of the steps at every sixteenth bar, typically going on for five or six sequences in all.  Specially performed sequence dance music in strict tempo is needed, although some 'ordinary' music will occasionally suffice.

A dance sequence may be either 'old time' or 'modern' with the dividing line being somewhere in the early 20th century.  New sequences are being devised all the time and the number which have been published runs into thousands.

The Castle School of Dancing regularly teaches a variety different modern sequence dances, some of which are listed below:
