29.07.14 BAILANDO AMOR (Kate Sala) Had seen a couple of favourable reviews for this one. A 64 count dance plus about 40 “&” counts and the second half seemed a bit more tricky than the first as it gets quite busy towards the end. Goes well to the music though and only one person sat it out after the first dance of it. Think this will do well at my class. We dance it to the English version of the track.
Also danced tonight: Rumba Ride, Evergreen, Clap Happy, Alcazar, Rather Be, He’s Italiano, Ball & Chain, Celtic Heartbeat, Divine Line, One Track Mind, Night Nurse, Coca Cola Shake, Say Geronimo, Rainmaker, Walking On Air, and Masquerade.
22.07.14 SAY GERONIMO (Ria Vos) This seemed to be the dance of the weekend from Harrogate and even those who had already learnt it were keen to see it covered in class. I gave an alternative for those who wanted to leave out the shoulder movements. It was an easier teach than I expected. After the first 16 counts, there’s nothing too hard. Having said that though, the first time we hit the tag I noticed a few were just stood there having completely forgotten what they were supposed to be doing! I’m sure this will do very well in this area.
Made it a double-Dutch night with a second new dance which was HE’S ITALIANO (Wil Bos). Told them up front it was an improver dance and although they danced it twice, there wasn’t really much of a response to it. It seems they can take it or leave it. Quickish teach and shouldn’t take too long to recap next week.
Also danced tonight: Clap Happy, Commitment, Adrenalina, The Pulse, Divine Line, Rainmaker, Electric Rhythm, One Track Mind, Masquerade, Hit The Road Jack, Coca Cola Shake, Ball & Chain, Walking On Air, Raggle Taggle Gypsy O, and Alcazar.
