Currently in the Top 20

15.10.18

Bethlehem Child is an interesting one.  A basic 28 count dance which gradually builds with a few extra steps every rotation. I’m sure when it takes 10 separate lines to describe the extended sequence, some will be put off from teaching it. But, I’ve also no doubt that it’ll probably be a lot easier to dance than it might first look. It’s choreographed by a triplet of Dutchmen. Just not sure whether I want to be dancing to this type of gospel track though.

OK so this next one has now slipped just outside the top 20 but still worth a further look. Classed as advanced or maybe just higher intermediate, I love the track which is from the same band that brought us Vanotek Cha. My kind of music but possibly not one for everyone. as the dance looks a bit nippy and just a little tricky in places.  I’m hoping this is one that Maggie G will teach at her Coventry weekend at the end of this month.

Do I need a website?

Just wondering how many people regularly visit this website?  As times change it seems more and more people can access information about dances taught etc on Facebook. I tend to put on Facebook what I’m going to be teaching beforehand whereas I only update this site once I’ve taught something.

I’m thinking about possibly closing down the website at some point but continue to update what I’m teaching on Facebook. Would this be a problem for you? Please let me know by commenting below or email me via the Contact section.
