Some new ones that look good!

Just returned from a week away and found a few new ones I need to catch up with!

DUTY FREE  by Robbie McGowan Hickie – A nice upbeat latin one.

YOU KNOCK ME DOWN by Niels Poulsen – Great dance to another catchy track from Olly Murs.

LIQUID LUNCH by Peter Metelnick & Alison Biggs – Several dances out to this but I prefer the choreography in Peter & Alison’s.

STARING BACK AT ME – Neville Fitzgerald & Julie Harris – Nev & Julie doing what they do best to Justin Timberlake’s Mirrors.

New dance – Downtown

I’ve just uploaded my latest dance to the track Downtown by Lady Antebellum.  Its a 40 count intermediate dance with one tag and one restart.

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.
