17.01.17 SHARDS OF GLASS (Karl-Harry Winson) As I’ve said before, this type of nightclub two-step may not be everyone’s cup of tea but give them a few goes and you often really get the feel of them. I don’t think the steps are particularly hard but the timing can be a little tricky especially when the beat in the music fades a little. Once mastered if feels really good. Really like the slow touch and look back in the middle of the dance.
Also danced tonight: Mysterious Girl, My First Love, So Just Dance Dance Dance, Say It Again, I Came To Love You, Its Gotta Be You, You Don’t Know Love, Real Deal, Rated R, Kiss The Sky, Funky Love, Love On The Weekend, Blame It On My Heart, Oops Baby, and Human After All.
10.01.17 OOPS BABY (Cody Flowers & Rachael McEnaney) Neat little 32 count dance – I especially like the feel of section 2 with the side behind sequence. Have a feeling it may not stay around too long at my class but time will tell. There are other dances to this track but this seems to be the one that most are picking up on.
Also danced tonight: Darling On My Hand, Slam Goes The Door, Suite 16, Rather Be, Sofia, Corazon Diamente (Diamond Heart), Jealousy, Brand New Chick, Its Gotta Be You x 2, You Don’t Know Love, What About Tonight, Girls Like, Love On The Weekend, Where My Love Goes, Human After All, I Came To Love You, Funky Love, and So Good.
03.01.17 IT’S GOTTA BE YOU (Neville Fitzgerald & Julie Harris) Start of a new year and a fairly long teach with this 8&1 cha cha which is 64 counts plus restarts and a tag. The good thing is that the dance isn’t that fast so you do have a bit more thinking time. Once danced through a couple of times it did fall into place quite well.
Also danced tonight: Dear Friend, Tough Love, Hit The Base, Jealousy, Save The Day, I Came To Love You, Rated R, Blame It On My Heart, The Lone Ranger, Funky Love, Love On The Weekend, Human After All and So Good.
