There Are a Lot of Line Dance Lists!
And every single one of the darn tootin’ thangs seem to have a different way of calculating just which dances are the top ten.
It’s enough to make one’s inner domestic diva want to take off her tiara and eat bon bons!
Never fear, dearest readers, all twelve of you who actually read this blog… I, the awesome, the fantastic, the studly, being the kind, generous, friendly, charming person that I am have set out to make sense out of that muddle of mish-mashy information and simply for you. Can I have an amen?!
Ok, so, what I’ve done, is create two articles on Squidoo:
What you’ll find on this page is a summary of all the Top Ten Lists that of which I keep track. You’ll find a simple straight forward listing of the “Top Ten” dances from each list along with a link to the full list for that website. Here is the blurb from the beginning of the the Review:
Welcome to TxCowboyDancer’s Weekly Report of the Top Line Dances from ranking sites around the world.
Keeping track of all those line dances is a lot like Herding Cats which is why I created this summary page to make life a bit easier! (And why there is a photo of a cute Cowboy KItty. 🙂
Those wanting more information can follow the links to visit a “Detailed Report” for each site containing the “Top Ten” dances, links to the stepsheets, demo & walk-through videos, and the music for each dance.
For those folks who don’t even want to deal with the summary page in the List Review, I’ve created a page where I only list those dances appearing on multiple websites. Here is the blurb from the beginning of the artilce.
I monitor several line dance survey lists from different websites:
1. World Line Dance Newsletter
2. LineDancer Magazine
3. CopperKnob Line Dance Archive
4. Kickit Line Dance Archive
The following dances are ones which appear in the “Top Ten” lists on at least two of the four websites listed above, making them the most popular line dances on the planet!
HOTTEST — On all Four List
HOTTER — On Three of the Four Lists
HOT — On Two of the Four Lists
[Check out the dances listed in the article...]
So, there you have it, I hope you enjoy my two summary lists.
See ya on the Dance Floor!
There’s a Whole Lot of Dancin’ Goin’ On!
If you have come here to my blog in response to the notice in Carol’s Newsletter, just put the name and artist of the song down below in the comments section. Or you can use my “Contact Form” if you like. Either way will get the name of the song to my email inbox.
If you’re a follower of my blog or follow me on Twitter, then I extend the same invitation to you. Send me your favorite “Cruisin” song! Woot!
After all the recommendations stop flooding in, I’ll compile the list and create a new article over on Squidoo and post the link to the article so that everyone can see all the songs that people use to dance this awesome dance!
Until then, enjoy this video of some folks dancing “Cruisin”
See ya on the dance floor!
Asking “What are line dance levels?” feels a wee bit silly doesn’t it? I know that I felt a little strange asking the question. I mean, after all, the whole idea of “Beginner – Intermediate – Advanced” is a concept that most of us “get” right away.
It isn’t a silly question, of course.
Even though most of us can easily grasp the concept of a ranking system which starts with…
…“so easy a baby could do it…”
…moves through “kinda in the middle someplace”…
…and ends up at “you have GOT to be kidding me!”
…it is not easy to figure out exactly which dance goes where. It is quite a mess in fact! No wonder folks get confused!
Fear not fellow dancer, by the end of this short article you’ll be able to skim the workshop list at a dance event and decide with confidence which ones are right for you.
What most folks are really asking when they say “What are “Line Dance Levels?” is for more detail so they can then be able to sort the dances into their proper levels.
To put it another way, what people are asking is: “Where are the dividing lines between the levels and what steps are in each level?
Dance on my friend! Dance on!
This is an article that has been on my “To do” list for quite a while. And I finally got around to it. Because I’ve been line dancing quite a while, I have a pretty good grasp of what the levels are, however, as I’ve started teaching line dance, I’ve discovered that for many people the levels are confusing.
So this article is an attempt to sort it all out. I think it is pretty well written, but then I’m kinda biased. LOL Hmmm I wonder if I could get the judges at dance comps to let me judge myself? wink
Anyway, the article explains about the different “levels” that choreographers assign to their line dances, and talks about how you can, uhhmmmm, judge for yourself whether or not something is really a “beginner” or if the dance should actually be called an “improver” or “intermediate”
As with all my articles I write, there is a wee bit of humor thrown in just for giggles and grins, some cool photos of folks dancing, and some fun polls. I hope you enjoy it.
Looking for Tush Push Songs?
Sorry about having you “click again” but the list was getting too long. I had to split it into two lists:
List of songs up to 139 Beats per Minute, an interactive poll where you can vote for your favorite song, and links so that you can preview the music.
List of songs from 140 Beats per Minute and up, an interactive poll where you can vote for your favorite song, and links so that you can preview the music.
Other Dance Articles relating to the Tush Push which you may enjoy:
Article that talks about the Tush Push’s popularity, has a step sheet, and instructional videos for the dance and a fun poll.
Hope you enjoy the articles! 🙂 Again, sorry about the extra “click through” but this particular page is indexed and linked to from sites all over the Internet and I didn’t want to have dead links out there. Wouldn’t that be frustrating?
See ya on the dance floor!
