21.10.14 Two new slightly easier dances tonight. WONDER TRAIN (Ria Vos) is a fastish 64 count easy intermediate dance to yet another track by the band Train. Nothing too hard in it and the class picked it up quickly. I like the toe strut hinge turn combinations but I’m not so keen on the step lock, lock step parts.
Also tonight we did NOT THE ONLY ONE (Craig Bennett) to the song of the same name by Sam Smith. This is a 32 count nightclub two-step and I’d originally planned on covering this at the very end of the class as I knew not everyone would like it. In the end I taught it much earlier in the night while people were a little fresher. As expected it wasn’t a hit with everyone but the majority enjoyed it. There’s a couple of similar but different step patterns within the dance so you do have to concentrate a little as well as remembering the timing. Nice to have a smooth slow one for a change and after being somewhat unsure of the track at first I now love it!
Also danced tonight: All I Can Say, Walk Alone, There You’ll Be, Bailando Amor, Superheroes, Celtic Heartbeat, Eternal Secret, Fireball, Electric Rhythm, Not The Only One, Ghost, Angel in Blue Jeans, Paint The Town Green, Rainmaker, We Only Live Once, 911, and Ain’t Wot U Do.
14.10.14 SUPERHEROES (Maggie Gallagher) Another dance, like last week’s, to a track by The Script. Totally different in style though. Spent quite some time getting the timing across and dancing the first four walls in full to cover the restarts and first tag. Definitely one of those where the step sheet might look a bit daunting at first, but the restarts are fairly obvious and the tags are both on the 3.00 wall. Once we’d danced it, it quickly fell into place and seemed to be a definite hit with the class.
Also danced tonight: Liquid Lunch, All I Can Say, The Pulse, Night Nurse, Kiss The Stars, Walking On Air, Paint The Town Green, Masquerade, Eternal Secret, Hit The Floor, Angel In Blue Jeans, We Only Live Once, 911, Bailando Amor, Ain’t Wot U Do, Fireball and Ghost.
