11.12.16 LOVE ON THE WEEKEND (Gary O’Reilly) One of those tracks that may not grab you the first time you listen to it, but after dancing it a few times tonight, people seemed to agree that yes they were starting to enjoy dancing to it. Flows nicely and I like the hinge turn and rock sequence although the final 16 counts proved to be the hardest for my lot. Hope this dance doesn’t get overlooked due to the Christmas and New Year break that many classes will be having now.
Also danced tonight: Lamtarra Rumba-Ribbon Of Highway-Tell The World to Christmas tracks, The Lone Ranger, Harden Up Princess, Jealousy, Sofia, Human After All, Say It Again, Love On The Weekend, Brand New Chick, Funky Love, Kiss The Sky, What About Tonight, You Don’t Know Love, Grow Up, So Good, I Came To Love You, Blame It On My Heart, Where My Love Goes and Rated R.
04.12.16 No class due to fog.
29.11.16 HUMAN AFTER ALL (Ria Vos) This is the sort of the dance I used to cover at the end of the class just for those who wanted to stay and learn an extra one. But I decided that it was asking a bit much to expect them to start learning a dance like this after a hard night of dancing. So I did it early, but not surprisingly it wasn’t for everyone. Those who like a bit more of a challenge enjoyed it but some not keen on the track. With the turns in the dance and the timing, higher intermediate is probably a fair description. Needed a more in depth teach so we lost a little general dancing time.
29.11.2016 FUNKY LOVE (Maggie Gallagher) This was a dance I brought back from our weekend away at Coventry. A total contrast to Human After All, this one has simplish steps but its fast and furious with plenty of tags and restarts to remember, and is more of a mainstream dance. Not a long teach despite the 72 counts.
Also danced tonight: Just A Kiss, Gypsy Queen, Tough Love, Save The Day, Blame It On My Heart, Suite 16, Brand New Chick, Meteorite, I Came To Love You, So Good, Where My Love Goes, and Rated R.
