Teaching “American Kids” this week – “Tush Push” next week


The dance I will be teaching
this week is “American Kids

@profile pic 3[drum roll please] In my two weekly classes: on Tue, 22nd in Fort Worth & Wed, 23rd in Dallas,  I shall teach:  “American Kids

Follow the link if you want to see the step sheet and/or video of the dance. It is a 32 count / 4 wall / High Beginner line dance.

This dance is very very VERY popular right now, appearing on multiple “Top Ten” lists  and on play lists for local “Line Dance Parties.”

For those who are new to line dancing, the difficulty level of a line dance is indicated on a sliding scale starting with “Absolute” or “Ultra” beginner moving into “Beginner” through “High Beginner” also known as “Improver” then going on to Intermediate and Advanced.

Big Revival Kenny ChesneyAmerican Kids” is “High Beginner / Improver” — One easy to hear restart (part of what makes it a “high beginner”)  Yay!  Come to my class or Google it if you need a definition of tags and restarts)

It is choreographed by Randy Pelletier.

The music to which the dance is choreographed is American Kids by Kenny Chesney. (link goes to Amazon where you can preview it for free or buy the song for your collection)

Next Week is “Oldie But Goodie” Week

One of the things that has always frustrated me is the emphasis on “teach the new stuff” — sigh

So…now that I’m teaching weekly classes, I wanted to make sure that I occasionally taught some of the “old stuff” — the dances that have stood the test of time.  So…every month that has five weeks, I will teach a “Line Dance Classic” on the fifth week.

And if any dance qualifies as a “Line Dance Classic” or an “Oldie but Goodie” then it is the TUSH PUSH!!!!

On Tue the 29th and Wed the 30th, I will teach the Tush Push in my classes!

Tush Push / choreographed by Jim Ferrazzano
40 count / 4 wall /  Improver level
