Beginning Line Dance Class: Come Learn “Breaking Hearts”


Continuing the “Party Match Up” Series…

Line Dance at DanceMakers of TexasOne of the things I try very hard to do is to select line dances which match up with a “Couples” dance style.

I choose dances where the choreography of the dance is done to distinct types of music which correspond to the couples dance styles: Cha-Cha, East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Rumba, Tango, Night Club Two Step, Polka, Salsa, etc.

Why? Because finding a place to actually DANCE the line dances that you learn in class is HARD!  Of course you can always dance in your kitchen or living room or even on the front porch.  The neighbors might talk about that “crazy person” down the block, but you could do it.

DanceMakers has two “Practice Parties” each month.  In Feb they will be on Feb 10th and Feb 24th, 8pm – 9:30 pm.

Psssssstttt… don’t tell anyone but a line dance does NOT have to be danced to the original song!!!!  Shhhh…it is our secret.  🙂

So….to use this week’s dance as an example, when you’re at the Practice Party, and a “Cha Cha” comes on, you can jump out in the middle of the floor and start doing “Breaking Hearts” the dance that we’ll review/learn on Tue.  As you dance, use good dance floor etiquette and be aware of the other dancers on the floor so that everyone can enjoy their style of dance, both couples and line.

So, come on out, join the fun, and learn this awesome “Cha-Cha” on Tuesday, Jan 31st at 6pm

  • Have fun!
  • Meet new people.
  • Use this pattern to practice basic Cha-Cha technique and improve your couples dancing.
  • Exercise!
  • And… HAVE LOTS OF FUN!

Teaching “Midnight Waltz” Tonight


Midnight Waltz…

me 544x544No, we won’t be learning this at midnight!  LOL

The class is at its regular time — 6pm!   “Midnight Waltz” is the name of the DANCE!

It is choreographed by Jo Thompson Szymanski.  This dance is a class that has been around for a long time.

This is a wonderfully choreographed waltz with lots of fundamental Waltz Steps in the pattern. If you have ever done any COUPLES waltzing, then you will instantly recognize the footwork. Which means that this line dance is an awesome practice tool for GASP couples dancers! So whatcherwaitinfer?

Come on out tonight! See ya in class!  The music I’ve chosen is the one in this video.  It can be done to any speed of waltz. The faster the music, the more difficult it becomes.  For tonight (because Tony is worn out from a lot of dancing this past weekend) we are doing it to a slow song!

Here’s the music for the dance: Their Hearts Are Dancing / by the Forester Sisters (Preview it for free or download it from Amazon)

Here is the stepsheet for tonight’s dance: http://www.copperknob.co.uk/stepsheets/midnight-waltz-ID71690.aspx
