I had an amazing day and it's fantastic to think that money raised for charity will go to a very worthy cause, Cancer Research. We are still awaiting the final total after venue/catering have been paid. We will keep you all updated. May I be the first to congratulate James Harrington and the Step-In-Line team on a highly successful day, I was a fun day and the food was fantastic...especially lounging about in the sun eating it like Lady Muck lol!
 


23/11/07: STEP-IN-LINE Workshop Report

Our first workshop held in a lovely, cosy, atmospheric, and fully equipped hall at South Grove, Woodston. Turn out of the workshop was a little disappointing but they made up for it in the social part of the evening.

DANCES TAUGHT

1. Another You - Karen "Kaz" Looker (taught by Karen)
(a lovely nightclub 2step, not too difficult, lovely phrasing. Well received). Video: Here

2. Xplosiv - Michael "Bimbo Boots" Lynn (taught by me)
(alot of Buzz surrounding the dance with it's recent publication. Great feedback, bit of a workout dance, saw a few downing red bull's halfway though lol. Music & dance liked.)  Video: Here

3. Bleeding Love - Steve Mason & Claire Bell (taught by James)
(mixed reactions, last 16 counts a bit fiddly, took a bit of work to get it to flow. We danced to the proper single version and found that it fitted to a rather funky official remix by Moto Blanco that really took the dance to a new level). Video: Here

4. Mini-Maniac - Michael "Bimbo Boots" Lynn (taught by me)
(a simple improver dance 24 counts to a great well known pop track. a revised version of Maniac from the flashback movie. Enjoyed by all, fun dance... especially the step shimmy's). Video: Here

5. A Pair Of Hearts - Maggie G (taught by James)
(music maybe slow but the steps aren't. we had the crank the pitch right down low for this one. tricky footwork, especially steps 9 - 16 with the full triple turn into the 1/4 weave/point section. they all coped well with the amount of tags and
where they came :)  Video: Here

6. 10 Miles - Michael "Bimbo Boots" Lynn (taught by me)
(a low intermediate 32 count cha cha, some repeated sections made this easy to remember. music by infernal. again lowered the pitch until the steps were grasped. requested in the social that night :) Video: Here

Look out for the video of our remixed version of Bleeding Love!

**************************

EVENING SOCIAL

Numbers picked up vastly for the evening social. All types of dances played, country, pop, latin etc. Mark Furnell attended and was great fun watching him remembering his steps to his old dance Mother Mary (which we recently revived at our class).

Floor Fillers of the night were;
* Head Over Heels
* Another You (Karen's dance taught that day)
* Bleeding Love (one of Jame's teaches)
* Mother Mary (by Mark Furnell)
* Zzozzy's Funk
* Hey Big Spender

Thanks to all those who attended the event, and especially to those who traveled, we really do appreciate your support.

Other events are in the pipeline with a Looking Back event, where we revive old dances and an Improvers workshop.

12/02/07: Milton Keynes Workshop 

Some of us from the class attended Kim Ray's Linedance Workshop day in Milton Keynes. It featured guest choreographers such as Crystal Boot Winner "Geri Morrison", "Phil Partridge" and "Kim Ray" herself! It was a marathon of nearly 11 hours of dancing, but lots of fun. Dances taught by Kim where; The Lemon Tree & Almaz; Phil taught a lovely nightclub two step & the star choreographer Geri Morrison taught Shine, Nothin' Stays The Same & El Noche. My fav new dance was Nothin' Stays The Same; music provided by Keith Urban.... a rocking, country track (which I don't normally like much country but this made me wanna boogie!). Below is a picture of myself and James with Crystal Boot award winner Geri Morrison; mostly known for her huge linedance hit "Trust Me" and also the choreographer to "A Knockdown" that we dance at class.  In the demo's section myself and James danced one of my new dances Corrida's Groove; this was very well received and had the largest cheer/applause ;o) A demo of my dance can be viewed on my website... link below. It was a great day, good workout and lots of fun!!!!
