21.04.15 I LOVE IT! (Ria Vos) The title of the track sums up this dance perfectly – I don’t like it – I love it! The dance has plenty of moves that capture the feel of this catchy track, just a little on the funky side. The swivet, hitch touch and twist section was a bit of a challenge for some at first. But after what seemed to be an extended teach, it all seemed to fall into place nicely when the music went on. Its not a fast dance so there is some thinking time. No tags or restarts, just a solid 64 count intermediate dance that should do very well. Sheet should be out around the end of the month.
21.0415 NEW SHADE OF BLUE (Yvonne Anderson) Had been asked to cover this one so I taught it at the end of the night as I knew several in the class had learnt it elsewhere. It’s already in the top 10 dance charts so sure to be seen out on the circuit. Nothing hard so quite a good one to finish the night on.
Also danced tonight: Before The Devil, Somebody Like You, Run Away With You, Rather Be, The Boy Can Dance, Eternal Secret, Love Me Like You Do, Up, Break It Up, Alvaro, Highway Don’t Care, Bubbles Dahhhling, Suite 215, Thinking Different, and Darling Hold My Hand.
14.04.15 BREAK ME UP (Kate Sala) Had this on the pile to do for a few weeks. It wasn’t a big hit but went down OK I think. The song was in the running to be Ireland’s Eurovision song for 2015 but it finished third in the selection competition. Not a bad mainstream track and it doesn’t outstay its welcome coming in at just under 3 minutes.
Also danced tonight: Walk Alone, Angel In Blue Jeans, Alcazar, Bubbles Dahhhling, Gomez, I Lived, Thinking Different (twice), Superheroes, Hard To Say It, Uptown Funk, Up, Highway Don’t Care, Darling Hold My Hand, Suite 215, Love Me Like You Do, and Get Down On The Floor.
