Whats your favourite dance at the moment?

Postby LittleGPX » Tue Nov 13, 2007 7:39 pm

I'm just honoured to manage to do a full one at all without facing wrong way!

My fave at moment is "Naughty but nice" to Tammy Wynette's 'Your good girls gonna go bad'.

we used to do forever and a day to the devil went down to Georgia :wink:

And try ride the river to something a bit faster it's much better!

Tried naughty but nice but wasn't keen on it sorry

I quite like Adios Amigos at the moment (the musics good old country too, non of this pop malarkey!)

I quite liked Grace kelly (obviously not to mika music except in the confines of the dacne class) I've done it to walking after midnight and it's really good.

Also still enjoying Confidentially that we learnt back at Pickering last Easter. We found it goes really well to the cowboy rides away.

A Cowboy and a Dancer - lovely track and can dance to quite a few others

NIMBY - Did this one to Mercury Blues the other day and it worked

Confindentially- Like NickyJo just love the track and the dance gorgeous

Firecracker - Music suspect but love the quirky footwork in the one

Circle of life - Martine taught me this one at 2am in the morning last weekend, I must be mad and it goes lovely to Unanswered Prayers or The Gambler

Surely not Josh Turner's "Firecracker" .. it's one of the best country songs around at the minute. :)

Agree Josh Turner is the business and it is def NOT a dance to his version of Firecracker, the dance is called Firecracker and the music is a lady called Helena Paparizou the track "You set my heart on fire"

It is to the 56 count dance Choreographer Robert Lindsay love the dance but the music is another matter it is going to be big on the dance floors, I will have to get listening to the beat and try think of a country track to fit, will let you know if I succeed, or if anyone has already danced this to a country track I would love to know what track :D

Sorry the dance to Josh Turner's Firecracker is Snap crackle & pop.
And my favorite dance at the moment is Big love to George Straight's song The big one

Found a couple of songs in my collection of British country bands we could use for the dance Firecracker

1) Settlers Creek - CD Back on the Road track Dust on the Bottle

2) Wrangler - track Rose in paradise


and a Brad Paisley track from his new album 5th gear - track, All I wanted was a car :)

I can't get a handle on cowboy and a dancer and sorry the music's boring too and also don't like nimby-sorry
I'm getting very picky these days and find some of these dances just get so borning.

Has anyone else out there noticed the phenominum (sorry can't spell) that is the very very scary similatities between Wo Mamma and Joes Place? sorry I just can't learn a new dance with a new ending on my brain won't have it!

Nickyjo Hi, hope your OK.

We have noticed over the years that many dances are similar to old ones some even seem like bits taken out of several dances.

Once a choreographer comes up with a new arrangement of steps you can bet your botton dollar they will be used to the death. I remember when Lamtarra Rumba came out Side tog fwd hold, side tog back hold, after that there were numerous dances with those steps in.

I know that they had probably been used before but the dances had not become as popular as that particular one.

We opened our dance class i n 1989 and have seen many changes since then, some for the better but a lot worse unfortunately.

mmm I agree Mary but this one is PURE plagerism. A full sized dance with only the last sequence being different.

We did one last week called "Sea Salt Sally" its a whomping 96 counts but doesnt really feel that big once youre doing it! im taking a while to get the hang of the fancy footwork in the middle though!

I wish somebody would come up with a dance called "easy peasy lemon squeezy" - i might be able to do that one lol
