Texas Hoedown Special – “Intro to Competition Line Dance”


Texas Hoedown is this Weekend!

Texas Hoedown Logo copyThe Texas Hoedown is the first event in the ACDA‘s dance year.  ACDA is “American Country Dance Association”

If you are anywhere within easy  travel distance of the Dallas / Fort Worth area, I encourage you to come on out and join the fun.

And this event is FUN!  It is the one universal comment that folks who have been to the Hoedown always mention:

  • Social Dancing – both partners and line dancing
  • Competition in Country Western
  • Jack & Jill in Two step and West Coast Swing
  • Sat night show and “Crown / Masters” competition as part of the show

What’s not to like?

I’ll be there all weekend…

  • Teaching two line dance workshops:
    • 5pm on Fri, Mar 11 in the Line Dance Lobby
      6, 8, 12 / choreographed by Daan Geelen (Beginner / Improver) Night Club Two-step style line dance
      Listen to the music for the dance: 6, 8, 12 by Brian McKnight
    • 2pm on Sat, Mar 12 in the Line Dance Lobby
      Sexy Night / choreographed by Raymond Sarlemijn and Niels Poulsen (Easy Intermediate) line dance

  • I’ll be performing in the Saturday night show!  Woot!
    (Show is at 9pm but don’t miss the Superstars competition at 8pm — Ballroom opens at 7pm for social dancing.
    ..
  • I *might* be competing 1 dance on Sunday morning…still working on the dance.  Hey don’t judge!  My life has been crazy the last few weeks…I had to prioritize.  So there!  😀  IF I get the dance ready I’ll compete.  If not…I’ll scratch.

SPECIAL OFFER for my
“Introduction to Competition Line Dancing”

Folks I’m nuts. There. I said it. (why do I feel like I’m channeling a used car salesman all the sudden?) Hmmmm
Here’s the deal. I like line dancing. I think EVERY competitive dancer who does Pro-Am and/or Couples should ALSO line dance.
I believe this sooo MUCH that I’m willing to teach an “Intro to Line Dance Competition” lesson for only $15 (plus floor fees if applicable) — No Floor fees at the Texas Hoedown!!!! *hint* *hint*
If you take the “Intro to Line Competition” lesson during the Hoedown OR book the lesson for a later date, the rate is only $15. And “yes” we can do this remotely. (via Skype)
Do not miss this special rate. The price goes back up on Monday after the Hoedown is over.

The ProAm and Couples Competitor’s “Secret Weapon”


Line dancing makes you a better overall dancer!

Shhhhh!  Don’t tell anyone!

If you are…

  • …a Couples or ProAm competitor who wants an “edge”
  • …a Social Dancer who wants to improve their skills on the dance floor,

Then you should consider Line Dance Competition!

Here’s the deal:

Introduction to Line Dance Competition

No, you don’t have to be local to the Fort Worth / Denton / Dallas metroplex.

If you are in a distant part of the world from me we can do the lesson via Skype and I’ll send you a video of the “line dance teach.”

What are you waiting for? — Line Dancing is FUN!

What? Not convinced yet?

OK, if you need more reasons, let me share. *grin*

Here are some reasons why you should add line dancing competition in addition to your ProAm or Couples competition: Read the rest of this entry
