Very disappointing attendance at Wednesday’s Saltaire class, quite a lot on holiday and other commitments. Taught Neville & Julie’s “AMERICAN HONEY” choreographed to Lady Antebellum’s track of the same name. A few weren’t too keen on the music but hopefully it will grow on them. A nice easy 32 count 4 wall dance with an 8 count tag that you dance twice at the end of walls 3 & 5 and a 4 count tag & restart during wall 6. Re-capped last week’s dance Peter & Alison’s “UP UP UP” , this one doing well, they asked for it again straight away.
