Dances Taught at Extra Class – 03/04/10

Here’s the dances I taught at the latest extra class at Canwick Village Hall on Saturday, 3rd April 2010.

SUGAR CANDY (Neville Fitzgerald & Julie Harris) A 64 count 4 wall easy intermediate dance to a funky sort of reggae style track.  It opens with a bit of a rap but the main song is a reworking of the old Archies hits “Sugar Sugar”. 

UNDERCOVER (Robbie McGowan Hickie) One of several new dances from Robbie, I went with this one as its catchy upbeat pop track. 48 counts, 4 walls, 2 restarts and 1 tag but not too hard. Music by Cosmo4 to a track called What’s Your Name.

QUITTER (Maggie Gallagher) Another fastish track but this time to the country sound of Carrie Underwood. 64 count, 4 wall improver level dance that reminds me of the dance called The World from a few years back.

I also recapped a dance from my last Saturday extra class at the end of February – Robbie & Kate’s Upside Down.

Several people said they liked all three dances and I think my own favourite was Undercover. Another good turnout, especially for the Easter weekend so thanks to all who came out.  Special thanks to Chris Mellors who kindly agreed to recap an oldie for us – he did a couple of walls of Robbie’s Blue Beyond.

I’ve just been advised that there is a video of Charlotte (and others) dancing my dance, Pocket Two Step, on youtube. Just click on Lincoln Lonestars Videos on the blue title bar to see it.

Dances Taught at Extra Class – 27/02/10

Did the first extra class of the year on Saturday 27th February where I taught 3 new dances –

C U AGAIN (Jonathan Williamson) This dance won the Linedancer magazine choreography competition and I can see why. An upbeat but fairly straightforward 64 counter that received a round of applause! Well worth checking out. Music by Miley Cyrus.

UPSIDE DOWN (Kate Sala and Robbie M Hickie) Although only 48counts, there are lots of “&” counts so plenty to remember. The class found it a little tricky at first but it got a good response. Music by Paloma Faith.

 WISHING ON A STAR (Paul McAdam) Not a very good response to this 32 count offbeat cha-cha. Quite like it myself but only a handful got up when played at the end of the night.  Music by Paul Weller.

Thanks to those who attended, both from my own class and from further afield.
