Hi,

S'funny... some people knocking YouTube regarding Line Dancing ... and yet.... couldn't help noticing a number of Instructors in the UK have VERY recently started to re/teach THE BEAST... and all because the ladies loved YouTube (though they would NEVER admit it....lol).

Have to admit, I wasn't keen on the dance when it came out... still not keen now.... but quite a few did.

I can't read a step sheet,

If a class dances the same old dance at every social, they should teach them in a class every now and then.

I so agree with you on this one. It drives me nuts when you go to a social night and they put a dance on you used to know/love but have forgotten or as you say missed out on the tuition first time round! A 5 minute recap is all thats needed most times.

Hi KK...

The only downside I can see regarding 'recaps' is simply... when does an Instructor/Organisor say 'enough is enough' (with quick run thru's).. remembering that its a 'social' that everyone is at. The trouble is.. as one piles on the years with Linedancing... we tend to to forget more and more of the 'older' dances.

Try a search for utube then search in utube for "line dance" There you can view and download video clips of numerous line dances, old and new. Good Luck and happy dancing. FDRE

Hi,

Unmistakable... Choreographed by (the late) Jean Bridgman. A good interpetation of the music. Good choice.

I still enjoy dancing California Blue, feel good factor dance in my book. I haven't danced "Where We've Been" for a long time now. Really danced it to death when it came out. Would have to get the script out & recap it.

(Into The Arena)
I remember when I first (self) learnt that dance - it was a bugger - took me ages... Laughing really enjoyed it though.

Know what you mean Tigger Laughing It didnt seem quite so hard second time around though. Funny how some dances you can jump up and do straight away. Another one I would like to get to grips with again is Patient Heart.

(I still cant teach myself dances from scripts Embarassed )

ahhhhh.... Patient Heart... bit of a story that one of how it came to be danced in the UK. Cut a short story even shorter - Hank from Wales reckoned 'he' was the first to get it it danced in the UK.. but he was miffed to say the least to find out it was already being danced some 8 months to a year before he clapped eyes on it. Many thought only Michael Vera-Lobas choreographed it as only his name was on the sheet. This was eventually corrected to include Lisa Foord (double 'o'). MVL was gobsmacked to find he had about 20 dancers alongside him when he announced he was going to do a demo of a dance the brits will not have seen before. This was at the Crystal Bootees awards a while back. Check with Mike from Route 66 for all the details.

Blimey.... running off at the mouth again..... the dance brill... the music even better with Bekka singing just like her Mother (and theres another story .. going back to about 1970.... but another time... maybe.....lol)

Yep the oldies are the best ,most people know them well and they are well practiced on live band nights. No harm in recapping them now and again though.

Question How do you define an oldie? How old must a dance be in order to qualify as an oldie? Different places have different lists of oldies. Am I right?

Hi Leo..

I can never ever understand Linedancers or their peers (instructors etc). They seem to 'think' that a (golden) oldie dance is around a year old. They sight that 'they learn at least two dances a week so having learnt a 100 dances .. the number one (at the start) now gets shoved into the golden oldies section'. In my opinion... what a load of tosh.. and again in my opinion... a golden Oldie has to be 'at least' five years old.

Some people who have been dancing for five or more years will obviously 'remember' that particular golden Oldie when it was first danced. Those who havent - wont... and thats life.

And dont forget one very important factor in all of this...The dance may be a golden oldie in one country (especially if thats where it 'started') but there are many many other countries in the World where to them its a brand new dance... and of course... the shoe is on the other foot when it comes to a dance that is or has been popular in another country PRIOR to it hitting the dancefloors in the UK or America for example.

Hi LTD,

I recall a dance by A Kinson called Chilly Cha Cha 32count (?) from around 1999/2000. Music by Jessica ????. Yep, if this is the same... really enjoyed that dance.

We still do chilly cha cha occasionally
Haven't a clue who wrote it (quite frankly I never know and don't really care - i usually try most dances).If theres more than one version I struggle -usually I prefer the first one I learned but I'll try other versions.
Anyway we do chiily cha cha as a floor split with others doing stroll along.
As with many "oldies" if its a while since we've done it,it sometimes takes a while to get it right but then we do usually get there in the end - Occasionally if we try a dance and can't get it right someone usually goes and rakes out the script for the next week (not usually much good to me but if i did know the dance I can sometimes follow the script and work out a missing step.)
If theres a few of us interested instructor will do a quick refresher. Sometimes we do a favourite oldies night. Instuctor swots up for that as
there's lots of calls for "can we have a quick walk through please" -
The longer you're dancing the more oldies there are - and sometimes the older you feel don't you think?

Hi..

Yeah... and why not use older dances as floor splits.. keeps 'em valid so to speak. All for that.

I feel as old as my feet.... and they get 'refreshed' on a regular basis.. sooooo I'm always being revitalised..... [Tigger thinks.. where's me batteries gone]
