Featured activity

The Funky Sole Line Dance Club

The Funky Sole Line Dance Club is run by award winning Line dance Instructor and International Choreographer Karl Harry Winson (D&G Qualified Instructor) along with his dance team Donna and Jo.

Based in Bournemouth and covering the south coast in areas such as Poole, Ferndown, Wimborne, Ringwood and Verwood, Funky Sole caters to all ages and abilities and encourages anyone and everyone to give Modern Line Dance a try.

Line dance is what it says it is, you dance in lines. It is a solo dance style in which you don't need a partner, just yourself and a pair of comfortable shoes and clothing.

Over the past 30 years Line Dance has evolved massively and as a club we have also. We use different music genres such as Pop, Rock n' Roll and Irish (plus many more) but this doesn't mean to say we don't still love our Country music.
