Hi everyone

A bit different for me - a funky new one!

The dance is called Nothing But The Rent and is a 32 count - 2 wall - intermediate dance (the PDF version is now available on our website.
The song is Ain't Nothing Goin' On But The Rent by Gwen Guthrie - for those of you old enough, this was released in the 80s and you may remember it!

The track is on iTunes and Amazon for download and on lots of albums - check out the sheet.

Here's the script:

I found that a large number of (non UK) dancers also used 'Down On The Corner' (The Mavericks) as an alternative piece of music.

Hi everyone

At last, we've managed to do a video for Nothing But The Rent. A big thanks to Andrew and Sheila who allowed us to do the video in their hall before the class started!

Here's the link - enjoy!

I thought I recognised the Hall - but just couldn't put my finger on it.
