25.08.15 I SAID I DO (Daniel Whittaker) I chose this dance as it’s choreographed to a good upbeat mainstream pop track and there’s nothing too complicated in it. Even the tags and restarts didn’t cause any problems and they are all out the way by the end of wall 3. The class soon picked it up and they were all on the floor to dance it 3 times. As it wasn’t a long teach, we managed to get through a lot of dances tonight, as you can see from the list below!
Also danced tonight: Rather Be, Angel In Blue Jeans, If You Were mine (revised from 2011), And Get It On, Get Up Get Down, Mind Over Matter, Heavenly Cha, Slam Goes Door, Quicksand, The Bomp, Foot Play, Goodbye Cha, Love Me Like You Do, I Love It, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down, Black Magic, Pop ‘n Drop, Alvaro, Senor Loco, Get Down On The Floor, Paint The Town Green and The Remix.
18.08.15 No new dance this week as we had a recap night. We did revise an oldie from 2011 which was a former class favourite. No one seemed to remember the title of the dance but fortunately they soon got back into the dance. It was Maggie Gallagher’s IF YOU WERE MINE.
Also danced tonight: Darling Hold My Hand, We Only Live Once, Brand New Day, Heavenly Cha, Mind Over Matter x2, Quicksand, Get Up Get Down, Tell The World, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down, Slam Goes The Door, Foot Play, Roads, Pop ‘n Drop, The Bomp, I Love It, And Get It On, Black Magic, Senor Loco, Goodbye Cha and Your Place Or Mine.
11.08.15 MIND OVER MATTER (Simon Ward & Niels Poulsen) Two weeks in and this one seems to be going well across the class. Part of it is danced on the diagonal as happens in many dances these days. Several people commented on how well it fitted the music and even with the tag (which they seemed to like) and two restarts its not a hard intermediate dance.
Also danced tonight: Into The Arena, Amame, Eternal Secret, Quicksand, Get Up Get Down, new Shade Of Blue, Heavenly Cha, Slam Goes The Door, Pop and Drop, Roads, Run Away With You, Foot Play, And Get It On, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down, and Black Magic.

Love this from the new Kacey Musgraves CD.
Looking for an easy upbeat country one? Then check this one out called WEDDING PROSPECT from Ria Vos.
Also in a similar vein is TRUCK STOP a joint effort by Kate Sala and Robbie McGowan Hickie.
And this one is already well on the way to being another big hit for Maggie Gallagher. The dance is called ROADS and its a catchy track by Lawson although the dance does feel very quick in places.
