04.08.15 DON’T LET THE SUN GO DOWN (Niels Poulsen & Simon Ward) A relatively easy nightclub two-step which seemed to go down well with the class except for the odd one or two. I’ve never been a big fan of this particular song so possibly fair to say the class enjoyed it more than I did – some said they loved it. Shouldn’t be too hard to recap next week.
Also danced tonight: All I Can Say, Goodbye Cha, Amazing Faith, Superheroes, Tell The World, And Get It On, Pop N Drop, Slam GoesThe Door, Up, The Bomp, Foot Play, Alvaro, Senor Loco, Black Magic, Heavenly Cha, Get Up Get Down, and I Love It.
28.07.15 POP ‘n DROP (Dee Musk & Ria Vos) Feels quite hard when first teaching it but quickly becomes much easier after a time or two of dancing it. The sticky points in the dance were the Spiral turn into the 1/4 rock and 3/4 pivot turn plus of course the timing for the penultimate section which needed a bit of practice. Great to see “Dwight” steps making a comeback. This should definitely be a big hit! Sheet due out mid August I believe but you can see the dance here.
28.07.15 FOOT PLAY (Daniel Whittaker) Saw this danced at a weekend event but would never have guessed the choreographer. This is quite a funky track so I covered it at the end of the night because after listening to the music I knew not everyone would want to stay and learn it. Those who did seemed to enjoy it but it is a bit directionally challenging at first. Nice shoulder pops, side slides and heel toe swivel sections within the 64 counts.
Also danced tonight: Not The Only One, Paint The Town Green, The Boy Can Dance, Heavenly Cha, Slam Goes The Door, The Bomp, Black Magic, New Shade Of Blue, Roads, Your Place Or Mine, Quicksand, and Get Up Get Down.
