09.01.18 TO THE MOON & BACK (Gary O’Reilly & Debbie Rushton) The slower nightclub two-step style dances aren’t always a hit with everyone at my class. But, everyone was up all 3 times when this one was played. That doesn’t mean everyone loved it but I was pleased with the response. There are three easy restarts on walls 1,3 and 5 which mean you never dance the final 4 counts of the dance facing the back wall. I think its a lovely track and great dance especially when you’ve done it a few times and got used to the tempo.
09.01.18 SWEET HURT (Ria Vos) I taught a 2nd new dance as this is isn’t too much of a challenge. Again, I really like the track (Jack Savoretti) and the dance flows well. It was an easy teach with no tags, restarts or “&” counts.

02.01.18 ALL THE KING’S HORSES (Peter Metelnick & Alison Biggs) Wanted to start the year off with something that wasn’t too tricky and this is a straightforward 2 wall 64 count dance with no tags or restarts. Decent track but at 4 minutes and 20 seconds it feels like it goes on for just a little too long, so might have to start fading it out.
