And…Moí will be there! With boots on!
The ACDA is second largest of the two major Country Western Dance organizations here in the United States. It is centered in the South / Southwest / Midwest part of the country and consists of several events spaced throughout the year.
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
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:
- The 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.
Dance: 6, 8, 12 / choreographed by Daan Geelen
Style: Newcomer / Improver level, 2 wall, 32 count, Night Club Two Step
Music: 6, 8, 12 / by Brian McKnight (preview for free or purchase and download for $1.29)

I haven’t posted a lot here on my blog about dancing; most of my posts have been more focused on getting healthy. So here’s a “dancing” post for your enjoyment.
A couple of days ago I sent an email to my dance partner. We have a big dance competition coming up. It is the Dallas Dance Festival and it is widely considered to be the largest UCWDC Country Western Competition Dance Event in the US other than the World Championships. I know that a lot of dancers treat it as something of a “dress rehearsal” for Worlds. Anyway, so much for the background, now back to the email.
I realized that we only had six practices left before the competition so I thought “Hey, I’d better do some thinking about what needs the most work and figure out a tentative ‘schedule’ and send it to my partner to see what she thinks”. Create a “Game Plan” in other words.
She thought what I wrote was funny, printed it out and brought it to the dance studio to show the other dancers and our coaches. Everyone was amused, and then one of the coaches said to my partner “That’s funny, he should start a blog.” Well, since I already *have*a blog, and a couple other dancers also thought it was amusing, I thought I’d share it here with the dozen folks who are actually reading this blog. Enjoy!
