29.09.15 THE REAL DEAL (Heather Barton & Willie Brown) Love this track by Darius Rucker and a great little dance from this pair of Scottish choreographers. Nothing particularly different step wise but there doesn’t need to be as the steps fit perfectly.
29.09.15 JUMP THE GUN (Robbie McGowan Hickie) I wasn’t too taken with the music when I first heard this track. But, after doing the dance to the music, I started to enjoy it. Sounds a little oriental and is a bit of a change from some of the dance tracks that have a more prominent heavy beat.
Also danced tonight: Poor Boy Shuffle, My First Love, Alvaro, And Get It On, Eternal Secret, Get Up Get Down, If You Were Mine, I Said I Do, Don’t Black Magic, Eureka, Foot Play, Pop N Drop, Tough Love, New Shade Of Blue, and Do What You Do.
22.09.15 TOUGH LOVE (Karl Harry Winson) After a week off, I didn’t want anything too complex to start back with. At 48 counts and just 2 walls and one restart, I don’t think this was too taxing. I’d been concerned that keeping in time for the first wall before the full beat kicks in might have been an issue. But once you get used to starting the dance slightly after the vocals begin, it seems to work alright. Seemed to be a hit with the class.
Also danced tonight: Knee Deep, Alcazar, Your Place Or Mine, If You Were Mine, Tell The World, Pop & Drop, Heavenly Cha, Black Magic, Eureka, Slam Goes The Door, I Love It, Mind Over Matter, Foot Play, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down, Do What You Do, The Bomp, and I Said I Do.

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.
I’m pleased to say that the Links section of the website is now working again. These will take you direct to step sheet and popular choreographer websites. Hope they are useful.
