Week comm. September 26th

On Monday in the first half at our Shipley class recapped a few recently taught dances and a couple we hadn’t done for a while. New dance for the second half was “MOVE A LIKE” (Ria Vos), excellent response from the class, also recapped “YOU AND I” (Peter & Alison) also a big hit at both our classes plus quick walls of a few others.

Playlist was :- Rio, Irish Stew, Bosa Nova, Tennessee Waltz Surprise, Hello Dolly, Pretty Belinda, Pot Of Gold / Country Walking (split floor),1-2-3-4, Party Freak / Stroll Along Cha, Something In The Water, Soul Food, On The Edge / Black Coffee (split floor), Haba Haba, Playing With Fire, Close To Paradise / Little Red Book (split floor), Telling The World / This & That (split floor), Commitment, You And I (twice), Dr Flame, Move A Like (twice), My Motivation, Devotion, Love 2 Dance, Hitched & Beyond Your Eyes.

On Wednesday at Saltaire wanted something easy as we were going away on holiday for two weeks and found the perfect dance in Maggie’s new night club “IF YOU WERE MINE”, a 32 count, 4 wall intermediate dance with no tags or restarts choreographed to a lovely track of the same name by Sanna Nielsen. The track has quite an abrupt ending but the en ding on the stepsheet is needed to make a perfect finish. Went down very well with our dancers and think this should be another big hit for Maggie. Recapped last week’s dance “MOVE A LIKE” (Ria Vos), all our dancers really enjoying this one, also recaps of “YOU AND I” (Peter & Alison) & “HITCHED^ (David Spencer), both going well.

Playlist for the night was :- Rhyme Or Reason, Upside Down, Only Girl, Plan B, Burlesque, Party Freak, Amame, Dr Flame, I’m No Good, Telling The World, Alabama Slammin, Playing With Fire, Soul Food, Poker Face, On The Edge, If You Were Mine (twice), No Scandal, Move A Like (twice), The Flute, You And I, Haba Haba, Love 2 Dance, Close To Paradise, If You Were Mine (again), Not Drunk Enough, Hitched, All Of Me & Devotion.

We are now on holiday in Tenerife (sat in the apartment typing this), our Monday class at Shipley will be closed for 2 weeks, reopening 17th October but the Wednesday class at Saltaire will be open as normal left in the very capable hands of Marilyn & Bernie, hope you’ll all give them your support. We’ll be back home late Friday 14th September, hopefully fully refreshed and rested for the Shelf Social the following day.
