If you wanna have TOO MUCH FUN Dancin' The San Francisco Bay Area, you gotta know the dances we dance.
This site contains the latest line dances and histories of dances being done in the San Francisco Bay Area. The dance step descriptions are scanned copies of the choreographer's signed step description sheets in .pdf format. The only reason I decided to author this web site was my ability to get the exact look and feel of the original step description sheet on the Web and the fact that the Acrobat Reader is free and easily accessible on the Adobe Web site. If you don't already have Acrobat Reader on your computer; you do need to download it before you can print the dances.

These line dances were choreographed after 1993 but prior to 1996 and are currently added to request lists at social dancing events.
