Sea Salt Sally is a very popular dance. If you like the music but find the dance a bit hard,try the dance My Girl Sally by Audrey Watson great floor split.

my favourite dance at the moment is Walk with Me, to Would you go with me by Josh Turner. Fantastic music and steps.

mm no comment on the above and some will know why.

Sorry not many dances hitting the spot for me just now - they're all pretty boring or over fiddly for no aparent reason.
The old floor fillers were simple, effective and fun and when danced with a good live band to whatever music came on (which is half the fun) made the whole hobby quite exhilarating.

I am however quite enjoying Eagles Rock for the time being :-) which seems to be quite verstile but still boring in terms of steps.

Very recently asked to run a class oop 'ere in upper Weardale and every dance is what I term the classics till now the bulk have reached the dizzy heights of mastering ( to a vast variety of music for each dance) Rock AT Clock, Lamtara R, Country 2 step, Tempted, et all
A few of the younger end have picked up really fast and on Tues night hit them with Cowboy Up! They loved it, mind I was k.....d after 3 times through plus counting over, but my point

Almost all the older dances still fill floors. The variety was there for all levels from basics like Cheyanne to Cowboy Up etc
And def teaching this new class proves the dancers have absolutely no idea what song goes with each dance, so it's now almost set in stone that they recognise a dance and tempo , and not a song
And are loving the music and a bop and even after jsut a few months over half don't need a dedicated song, but can fit their small rep to any track -hopefully helping banish ld acts forever!

p.s We're a liking E/Rock way better to Dixie Chix Let Er Rip - really cranks it up, especially as pretty boring to original scripted E's song

Couldn't agree more. I know quite a few people who, like myself are right off dancing just now. Strange isn't it?

See you at Skipton for a Swing It. :D

I ''walk through'' a few dances apparantly popular dances each month and they're almost always ab boring.
I honestly feel that alot of instructors teach what's in their ability, hence getting an often turn around of very easy (if danced for a while), repetative dances

Have always said, quality, not quantity.

Oh and afew of all-time fave dances that still do loads of time's we;re out -Cowboy Up!
Swing It (CU on the floor Carole)
Jukebox
Crazy Little Thing
Message In A Bottle
Stroll
