Looking for “Cruisin” Song Recommendations
There’s a Whole Lot of Dancin’ Goin’ On!
I posted a request to the World Line Dance Newsletter for people to send me the names of the songs that they use in their area to dance the “Cruisin” line dance.
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”

Line Dance Levels Explained, Defined and Demystified!
What are Line Dance Levels?
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.

Dancers Are Special People — and EVERYONE can dance!
I updated my article over on Squidoo:
Here’s an excerpt from the introduction:
You may laugh but it is true! Everyone can dance!
How many times have you heard someone say “I can’t dance”? Hmmmm? I bet you’ve heard it a lot.
However heartfelt folks may be who say “I can’t dance,” they are incorrect. They are mistaken. They “jus’ ain’t right” or, as we say in Texas:
“They are pure-dee wrong!”
EVERYONE can dance!
Dancing only requires two things: (1) the ability to move (2) and the ability to “hear” a beat.
To Dance, all you need is…
We’re talking getting from one spot to another. Even if you move slowly, or use wheels to get around, that still…
