I’m De-cluttering my life…

WILLING TO NEGOTIATE ON PRICE – MAKE ME AN OFFER!!!

Front

Front

This is one in a continuing series of posts over the next few weeks; all the things I’m selling are “prizes” or “souvenirs” or “participant” gifts given to the competitors at various dance events which I’ve attended.

I am willing to negotiate; make me a serious offer.

  • Embroidered on the front in colorful script with the phrase “Line Dancer’s Mantra 5, 6, 7, 8”
  • Brilliant Blue
  • Two sturdy woven strap handles long enough that you can put them over one shoulder.
  • Straps are 12.5″ long
  • Zippered closure at the top
  • Bag is 17.5″ wide
  • 4.75″ gusset at the bottom
  • When zipped the bag tapers to the width of the zipper at the top.
  • When unzipped the bag is very flexible and can accommodate a lot of “dance gear” that you need when you go to comps or dance workshops.
  • Sturdy vinyl – smooth on the inside, feels like canvas on the outside.
  • Bag weighs 8 oz when empty

Never used – New condition.

I like the bag, but I have sooooooo many bags, I never got around to using this one.

“UCWDC Special Series” wraps up with a “Review” of 3 Dances!


Tue August 30th is “Review” Night!

line dancers in night club-facebook sized

Wow, what a fun month it has been!  And it isn’t over yet!!!  Woot!  We have one more night left in August: Tue, Aug 30th at 6pm at DanceMakers of Texas

Sooooo….we’ll review the three UCWDC Competition Line Dances we’ve learned.  Woo Hoo!!!

For those students who are new this month to the class, a “review” night is where we briefly go over each dance.

We have three dances… and 50 minutes… so that works out to … [uhmmmm….calculating…doing hard math…. LOL] about 15 minutes per dance.  So be sure to check out these videos and links:

About these three dances…

Line Dancers in the Plaza-opacity 03-RESIZEDThese three dances are the UCWDC Newcomer Level competition dances for 2016-2017.

There are not one, but two UCWDC events held here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where, if you choose, you could compete, using these dances:

Also, two of the three dances use music which “Couples Dancers” will recognize:

  • Cha-Cha
  • Night Club Two-Step

The line dances incorporate basic footwork from those two styles thus these dances are an EXCELLENT PRACTICE DRILL for Couples Dancers who wish to have a way to practice fundamentals on their own.

Line Dance Class – When & Where:

  • Every Tuesday at 6pm
  • — 6201 Sunset Drive, Suite 630 Fort Worth, TX 76116 [Get Directions]
    — Studio Phone: 817-244-8500
  • Drop-ins Welcome ($15 per class) but save money by paying for the entire month ($10 per class–e.g. 3 classes left is $30)

 

 

See ya on the dance floor!!!!

 

Busy-Busy-Busy! A week filled with DANCING!


Just the facts…Uhmmm…the dance!

wood-floor-background-sized for Facebook- dancing shoes keep calmFolks who have read my blog over the years (you know who you are) know that my general theme has been one of rampant goofiness.  Well not today…  I just don’t have the time or strength or energy.

In fact… the past several months have been like that.  I’ve been focused so much on DOING that I haven’t had a lot of time to WRITE about doing.

I will, try… attempt… endeavor… undertake… give it my best shot to rectify that over the coming couple weeks.

Hopefully I’ll be able to bring you up to speed on what’s been happening on the fitness front, the finances front and give you an update as to where I stand on my Journey to Fitness and Health.

STAY TUNED…

But, as you may have noticed, I’ve been doing REALLY good to get 1 post out a week about the most pressing topic: my ongoing Line Dance class.

So, this post is simply what dancing I’ll be doing this week; I hope you can join me.

Tuesday Line Dance Class!

Line Dance Tuesdays with Tony in Fort Worth 4My “Beginner” line dance class on Tuesday is continuing.  I hope you can join me and bring a friend.  Really!  I need more people in the class!  This is summer and as is usual during the summer months, the number of students in the class have dropped off.  I really would like more folks in the class!

But on the bright side, right now, because of its small size, that means you get lots of individual attention!  Woot!

And there is a special price offer this month.  Check out the DanceMakers Website for full details.

It is no secret that I love line dance.  I also love to compete.

It is also no secret that I want MORE people to compete in line dance.  So for about a year now I’ve been offering at the VERY low cost of just $20 a special “Intro to Line Competition” session which can be taken in person or via Skype if you don’t live in my area.

This workshop on Aug 13th at 2pm will be a Special Presentation in a “group” format at no cost!

Well no additional cost.  The workshop is included with your weekend and/or day pass.

This workshop is for ALL DANCERS: Couples, ProAm and Social Line Dancers
Join UCWDC World Champion and ACDA Nationals Champion “Tony New” to learn everything you need to know about how to use Line Dance as a “drill” to build better basic skills. You’ll learn about step sheets and how to read them and the difference between social & competition line dance. Tony will give an overview of the rules and how to qualify for Nationals and Worlds as well as tips for all competitors.
