08.05.18 VANOTEK CHA (Gary O’Reilly) Initially, the music for this one didn’t particularly grab me but it certainly has a good steady beat, isn’t too fast, and the choreography flows well with typical 8&1 cha-chas steps. Went down pretty well with the class. One restart on wall 5, and then you only complete one more wall. have a feeling this could become very popular with intermediate dancers.

d steady beat, isn’t too fast and the choreography flows well with typical The dance takes it’s name from the group that perform the song.
01.05.18 SAMBARITO (Kim Ray, Pat Stott and Tina Argyle) Not too keen on the wall when they are doing the rap in the song but apart from that I like this track and its a great one to dance too. The only problem was people getting to know where they were heading to in section 4 – the diamond fallaway into the rock step. I think the step sheet should read a 1/4 turn rather than an 1/8 on counts 3& in this section. Went down pretty well with most an could take off.

12.12.17 No new dance as this was our last class before Christmas. We got through 30 dances tonight though.
Played tonight: Commitment, Pretend (Let It Snow by Chely Wright), Second Hand Heart, The Trail, Pot of Gold (In Dulce Jubilo by Mike Oldfield), Life Without You, Black Coffee (Hey Mr Christmas by Showaddywaddy), Glitter and Gold, I Was Wrong, Scared Of The Dark, Hurts Like A Cha Cha, You Don’t Love, Rumba Ride (Christmas Cookies by George Strait), Hearts On Fire, Lonely Drum, Crybaby, Jesse James, Enough Is Enough, Forget Me Not, Attention, Open Your Eyes, Derailed, Story Of A Heart, Jealousy, Everybody’s Got A Secret, Side By Side, Refund To My Heart, One Night Stand, Darling Hold My Hand and Love On The Weekend.
05.12.17 I WAS WRONG (Neville Fitzgerald & Julie Harris) This one is a similar sort of level to Everybody’s Got A Secret by the same choreographers, possibly a bit easier. Bit of a mixed response to it this week and we’ve got one more class before our Christmas break. Has a restart on wall 2 and a tag/restart on wall 5 which aren’t hard.
Also danced tonight: Don’t Hold Back, Perfect, Just A Memory, Feet Don’t Fail Me Now, Dynamite, The World, Boombox, Crybaby, Hurts Like A Cha Cha, Light It Up, Story Of A Heart, Scared Of The Dark, Came Here For Love, Superheroes, Glitter And Gold, Hearts On Fire, Delilah, and Forget Me Not.
28.11.17 FORGET ME NOT (Pat Stott) After the challenge of last week’s dance, I wanted something a little easier this time. This is an easy intermediate gentle 64 count 4 waller that went down quite well. Ideal for winding down a bit as we head towards the Christmas break. Nothing too hard and I liked section 3 with the turn and hooks and section 4 with the spiral turn.
Also danced tonight: First To Last, Side By Side, Timezone, Black Horse, Refund to My Heart, Everybody’s Got A Secret, Hurts Like A Cha Cha, Diamond Dreams, Lonely Drum, Glitter and Gold, Boots, Crybaby, Attention, Came Here For Love, Hearts On Fire, Scared Of The Dark, Story Of A Heart, Open Your Eyes, and Wonder.
