16.10.18 SANGRIA SUN (Tina Argyle) This is an easy dance, perhaps a bit too easy for some in this intermediate class but sometimes you need to have one or two that you can just put on after a couple of weeks, without a walk through. 3 restarts on walls 3,6 and 9 that conveniently arrive when you are facing the 3.00, 6.00 and 9.00 walls but if anything these make the dance more interesting.
16.10.18 TAPS (Darren Bailey) The main dance for the night was a fair bit harder than Sangria Sun. I’ve been wanting a slower dance for a few weeks and this one has a few different step sequences in it. Of course not everyone likes “different” – some prefer to dance what they are already comfortable with. Having said that, I think this one went down slightly better than I expected although it wasn’t a hit with everyone. Personally speaking it may well be my new favourite dance.
Also danced tonight: Somebody Like You, Dirty Little Secret, Missing, Pizziricco, Hold A Candle, Hold Tight, Raining Glitter, Sweet Sweet Smile, Those Were The Nights, Make No Promises, The Eurodance, All I Am Is You, Waves Of Love, The Thing About You, and To The Moon & Back.
09.10.18 THOSE WERE THE NIGHTS (Ivonne Verhagen, Kate Sala, Daniel Trepat, Rob Fowler and Giuseppe Scaccianoce). Hard to believe it took 5 choreographers to create a dance of just 48 counts! This was the second week running that I taught a dance to a Canadian country artist, This one is a bit trickier than last week’s and you need to concentrate to know which wall you are heading for at times. But it seemed to go down pretty well with the class.
Also danced tonight: First To Last, Beer For My Horses, Caught In The Act, Feel Alive, Texas Time, The Thing About You, The Drifter, The Eurodance, Jump Right In, I Close My Eyes, Make No Promises, All I Am Is You, Meet Me There, Sweet Sweet Smile, Waves Of Love, Get It Right, The Yellow And Green and Hearts on Fire.
