2018 - Main Class
Get It Right. 32-count, 4-wall Improver dance with 1 re-start & 2 tags (sorry) by Maddison Glover (Aus) Damn!!! Lively new 48-count, 4-wall Improver dance from Rob Fowler with 2 re-starts. The music is by Brett Kissel.
Cowboy Rides Away. 64-count, 4-wall Easy Intermediate dance by Helen Owen to the George Strait track which all the live artists have in their back catalogue. + Golden Oldies: Sweet Sweet Smile (the original by Johnny Two Step & Fi Scott, not the new version!); Weekdays, Cherokee Boogie
Texas Time. 64-count, 4-wall Intermediate dance by Alan Birchall & Jacqui Jax to a great new track by Keith Urban. Not an easy dance to pick up but it's proving popular, even with those who only attend 1 class per week.
Aces and Eights. 64-count, 4-wall Improver linedance by Karl-Harry Winson to Full House, Empty Heart by Derek Ryan which has more of a country feel than some of his other songs. No tags or re-start but a 'fancy ending' for those who can remember it. LOL.
People Are Good. 64-count, 2-wall Improver dance by Gary O'Reilly.It has 2 re-starts & TAG (sorry folks). Being danced elsewhere in the area and artists are starting to include it in their sets.
I Close My Eyes. 32 count, 4-wall easy linedance by Haxel Pace with 2 simple re-starts. I've chosen the full English version by Chris Norman rather than the Germen version with Nino De Angelo.
Rock Me Mama. 32 count, 4-wall easy linedance by Marie McLeod. Taught as a floor split for Wagon Wheel Rock as most of my main class don't like the established dance.
I Won't Back Down. 40-count, 4-wall easy-ish line dance by Rachel McEnaney-White in tribute to both the victims of the 2017 Las Vegas shootings & to Tom Petty who died the following day.
Whiskey Bridges. Easy warm-up dance to keep up to date with the beginners!
I Got This Too. 4-wall, Intermediate dance by Kate Sala. This dance looks to be popular wherever it has been taught so I thought I'd give it a go and it went down surprisingly well, with most liking both the dance and the music. It was published in last month's Cross Cuntry magazine so they thinks it's a country track!.
Drinking Problem. 4-wall, Improver dance by Darren Baileyn. Taught by request as it is being danced around the area but the class don't seem to impressed. Perhaps its too easy for them?
Sweet Hurt. 64-count, 4-wall, Improver dance by Ria Vos to the Jack Savoretti track.
