Yes I know this is a quick and dirty post without my usual wailing and drama but hey, I’m running short on time.  Sorry!  🙂

2013 Calendar / Event Calendar Updated


Don’t you hate the words “Tentative” and “Possible” and “Probable?”

Kitty dreaming of the Cat Calendar Centerfold ©2011Well unfortunately, at this point in the year, there is no help for it…  *sigh*

I’ve updated my calendar, for now.  Stay tuned for more changes over the coming few days as I line up this year’s schedule.

At any event where I’m attending  I’m ALWAYS available for private coaching and teaching.  In fact, I’ll stand on my head and do back flips to make the schedule work so I can meet you!  Woot!

Uhmmm… don’t literally hold me to that whole stand on the head thing…it is a metaphor.  If I actually tried to do a back flip it would be the end of my dancing career.  Urk.

Anyway, stay tuned as the calendar continues to be updated and detail added.  😀

See ya on the dance floor!

Babies, Line Dance Workshops and Headed to the Texas Classic


Texas Classic (TM)Only two days and some hours and I’ll be zipping off to the Texas Classic down in Houston.

Yee Haw!

This is going to be a very busy, very fun weekend full of dancing, workshops, competition and working in the video booth!

I’ll be competing in ProAm with my fabulous Pro Dancer, du jour, the wonderful Gretchen Smith, because my usual fabulous coach, the wonderful Natalja Sawal is uhmm… very round at the moment and about to be blessed with a visit from mister stork any day now.

Finding Good Triple Two Step Music


Music for “Triple Two Step”

Cowboy Dancing at a club (CC)Finding good music for a particular genre of dance is often very hard to do. In this post, you’ll find some basic information on “Triple Two Step” and some sample videos so you can see it for yourself what the dance looks like.

If you do a Google search you’ll come up with a lot of possibilities and trust me on this, a lot of them are garbage.  Bleech!

So I’ve created a page of some good ones.  What?  Do I sense some skepticism from the teeming masses?  Fear not gentle readers, the songs have been reviewed by my Inner Domestic Diva and they have met with her approval!   You can check out the page at  Triple Two Step Music — Song List

This list of songs is complied from a variety of sources found on the Internet, including ones from my own library and suggestions from the readers of this blog.  You can follow the links on the list to hear previews of the songs and buy your own copy if you like it.  And if you do buy a song or CD, then I get a couple of pennies commission.   Right now I just have the Amazon Links in place.  I’ll have links to iTunes on the list soon.

SAVINGS TIP:  Get the CD.  A lot of the CDs on Amazon are priced under a dollar.  And you get a whole set of songs.  Yes, you have to pay postage, but the cost per song is much lower than downloading one song at a time.

If you have a favorite Triple Two Step Song and it isn’t listed here, don’t be shy!  You can use the comment form down at the bottom of the page to send me a note and I’ll add it to the list.   So what are you waiting for?  Check out the page at Triple Two Step Music — Song List.

Hop on over there if you want to learn more about the dance style called Triple Two Step, and it’s related family of dances.
