Welllllllllllllllllllll... after 7 months in the wilderness learning the new sport of ' One Kneedle Crochet' and whilst suffering from acne of the left buttock.. 'William Sevone' geek has put pen to paper once again... much to the disappointment of many (who cheerfully thought he may have 'passed away').

More to follow......

Wellll.... its been forty years since that first (line) dance in 1968... and what do I have for the 'anniversary'????....

For those who know of my previous dances (the only way of knowing 'em is by doing them) the style and steps will come as no suprise as I have used them a few times over the years. The music is a different 'kettle of fish'.

I have used (what they call today) 'funky' type music before (some time before it became popular with the known choreographers) but this is more 'heavy'.

The essence of the dance is 'Stepping' (hence the title) and therefore a little bit of attitude is required. These are NOT 'young dancers only' steps... lets put it this way... if I can do 'em (with two shot up knees and a totally buggered ankle... plus my age..lol) only those in wheelchairs should have any kind of problem.



Steppin Line


Choreographed by:- William Sevone. April 20th 2008
Choreographed to:- "Shake" (118 bpm)... Ying Yang Twins feat: Pitbull ("United States of Atlanta")
Recommended Alternative:- Here come the girls (101 bpm)… Ernie K. Doe (many compilations)
Two Wall Line Dance:- 32 count - Intermediate
Choreographers note:- Please remember that the hops/bounces are not ‘Moon hops’ - keep them short and together. Add as much or as little of your own styling as you wish - feel the music.
The alternate music by Ernie K. Doe is phrased – so just go with the flow of the rhythm and you’ll be fine.
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
Dance starts with the drums and main vocals (approx 21s into music) feet slightly apart, weight on the left.
When using the Ernie K. Doe music the dance starts after the 10 sec intro – when the strings come in

4x Diagonal Step. Swing Left. Swing Right. Behind. 3/4 Right (9:00)
1 – 2 (with light stomp) Step right diagonally right. Step left diagonally left.

14 (lowering hands & upper body facing fwd) Turn ½ left & step forward onto left (3).
15 – 16 (with light stomp) Step right diagonally right. Step left diagonally left.
Dance note:Counts 9&-12&: The action (body position) is likened to ‘putting a shoulder to a door’.
The lead foot is forward, the head and shoulders (upper body) are turned right angles to the lead foot. The hip bumps are in line with the lead foot-to the ‘side’.
There is NO full body (1/4) turn (to the right).

Interestingly....

One particular Instructor sent me an email two weeks ago stating that the bouncing half turns - even just one of them - have proved very difficult for her and her students to perform and because of this she cannot teach the dance proper.

Ok, no problems there... though that part of the dance is one of the easiest to do as its quite natural flowing... but ...heck OK.

Then I read a review from the same Instructor yesterday morning 'praising' the very same move (abiet slower) and claiming it to be 'the fun part of the dance'... thing was ... it WASN'T the dance STEPPIN LINE... but the latest from Nev & Julie (Just Cant Stop). There is a clip of the dance on youtube.
And Instructors always know whats best for them and their dancers.

Ahhh well... such is life I suppose and as its a quite common move (though not in Linedancing), maybe not quite deja vu - as visions of two other dances come to mind one of which is 'Shake That Thing Miss Miss' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUz2l9gJGIs&feature=related

Anyway... if anyone else tried the dance (Steppin Line) and found the bouncing turns too difficult... you can always do the other dance...lol

The dance STEPPIN LINE now includes a recommended alternative piece of music... the classic 1970 'Here come the girls' by Ernie K. Doe
