Waltz Across Texas Logo 2016Waltz Across Texas is in Houston, this weekend, Oct 7-9.

It features a dance competition, lots of workshops, vendors selling costumes, and boots and dance shoes, and jewelry and there is LOTS of social dancing!

And it is FUN!  Really really FUN!!  Woot!

There is also a Saturday night show featuring some awesome dance numbers.

I will be teaching TWO Workshops!

Join me for my “Twisty Two Step” Workshop

#36 -- 2008.01 Worlds - ProAm Two StepTime: 5 pm, Oct 7th

Place: at the event hotel

Covers: a fun Two-step pattern.

Other info: You do not need a partner, although you should at least know the basic two-step.

For workshop #2, I will be teaching a line dance called “6-8-12”

Here is the walk-through video of the dance:

  • Line Dancers Having FunThe workshop is at 10 am on Saturday, Oct 8th (at the event hotel)
    ..
  • This line dance is suitable for all levels.
    ..
  • It is a Night Club Two-Step style dance.  Which means that a couples dancer or Pro-Am dancer who wants to practice their Night Club Two-step skills could use this pattern as a “practice” to improve their Night Club Two Step couples dancing!!!!
    ..
  • This dance is the current UCWDC Newcomer Smooth line dance.  So if you’ve been thinking of competing in line dance, here is your chance to learn one of the competition dances!  This dance will be in use through early March of 2017, so you can use it at any of the remaining UCWDC events and at the events early in the year in 2017!
    ..
  • This pattern can be danced to ANY Night Club Two Step song.
