New dance & music watch

One track you’ll be hearing a lot of on the radio and possibly seeing on the dance floors is the new one by Stooshe called SLIP. There is a choice of intermediate dances with both Maggie Gallagher (80 counts) and Pat & Lizzie Stott (64 counts) releasing a dance each. Pat & Lizzie also have an easier version for beginners called SLIP 32.  The choice is yours!

Robbie McGowan Hickie was recently in the county at Skegness for the Double H weekend event.  The new dances he taught included, MY FIRST LOVE (music by Eden ft Lainie May), HOLD A MEMORY (Shane Powell), ON THE ROCKS (Bridgit Mendler), DREAMS I DREAM and SUGAR MAMA.  I didn’t attend the weekend so I can’t help with sheets.

Caro Emerald’s new CD “The Shocking Miss Emerald” is about to be released in the UK and there’s bound to be a number of dances choreographed to tracks from it.  Being a Dutch artist its no surprise that choreographers from Holland are leading the way in getting their dances out.  There are two already available to the standout track LIQUID LUNCH – one by Francien Sittrop and another by Sebastiaan Holtland.  Of course, Neville & Julie already have a dance called FAKING IT heading up the charts to Caro’s single “Tangled Up.”  A little easier than some of their more funky choreography so it deserves to reach a wider audience.  Finally, Peter & Alison have one coming out called COMPLETELY to the song of the same name.

Talking of Dutch choreographers, Ria Vos, has managed to find another Bittersweet Memory style haunting track.  Her 32 count higher intermediate dance called ALL THOSE YESTERDAYS to the track by Jennifer Hanson should do well.  If you want something completely different music wise, take a look at her CLAP FOR THE DJ dance which is more of a Rock This Party type of dance although possibly not for everyone.  We are still enjoying her recent dance THE BASS – takes a bit of getting, but well worth the effort.  For something classed as advanced check out her QUESTION OF DOUBT dance.

Olly Murs has proved very popular on local dance floors and his latest single is Dear Darlin’.  If you haven’t already checked out Kate Sala’s dance to this track, its time to take a look.  The dance came out a few months back but somehow seems to have got overlooked. Although perhaps not an instant “Wow!” dance its one that most mainstream dancers will enjoy after a few plays.

As they often do, Peter and Alison are releasing a batch of dances together for various levels.  For me the pick of the bunch is OUR GENERATION, the music is by Sibel Redzep and the dance has a similar vibe to The Rush.

Ria Vos has a new one on the way called THE BASS – the music is by Nabiha and called Never Played The Bass.

Can also recommend Daniel Whittaker’s CRANK IT UP which is just a little funky but a fairly easy intermediate dance and well worth a look.

Maggie G has a few out including the Irish flavoured DANCE OF LOVE and THE STORM. She also has a new one on the way soon called WILD LOVE.

Lots writing to tracks from the new album by The Mavericks – Chris Hodgson has just released one called OVER TIME to the track All Over Again.

If you are looking for a fun little improver level Latin dance, check out PAPA JOE, choreographed by Evelyn Richter and music by King Brillo that you’ll be humming for days after!
