25.11.14 CHEESECAKE (Scott Blevins, Rachael McEnaney & Joey Warren) I didn’t expect everyone in the class to like this one and sure enough a few dropped out after the first time of dancing it. Quiet directionally challenging, especially getting from the end of the sequence into the start of the next wall. However, its one of those dances that feel great once you’ve got it all sussed. I did have something easier lined up but was requested/persuaded to do this instead!
Also danced tonight: Jumpin’ Up, Superheroes, Electric Rhythm, Paint The Town Green, So Wrapped Up, We Only Live Once, I Lived, Ghost, Angel In Blue Jeans, 911, Last Call Boys, Not The Only One, Cecilia, The Remix, and Bailando Amor.
18.11.14 LAST CALL BOYS! (Rachael McEnaney) After a couple of harder dances, I wanted something a little easier this week. Most of this 48 count dance is fairly straightforward but the first half of the penultimate section is a little more tricky – the knee pop 1/4 turn press and kick part caught a few out. And its a lot harder if you try to bring in the arm movements at the same time when she sings “don’t stop, hands up”. One or two weren’t sure about it but most seemed to like the dance.
Also danced tonight: My First Love, Celtic Heartbreak, Alcazar, Rainmaker, I Lived, Rather Be, Fireball, Not The Only One, Superheroes, We Only Live Once, Angel In Blue Jeans, The Remix, Cecilia, Paint The Town Green, and Wonder Train.
11.11.14 THE REMIX (Yvonne Anderson & Karl-Harry Winson) I think some in my class had the same initial reaction as I did when I first heard the music. I wasn’t sure I really liked it but do the dance a couple of times and you soon warm to the track. When teaching the dance, one or two of the holds may have felt a little odd at first but again once you dance it to the music, you find they fit really well. Quite a long teach but it is 80 counts and a fairly quick tempo. Certainly worth checking out.
