Evelyn Khinoo taught her brand new hit dance ...If My Friends Could See Me Now , Hysteria (Noel Bradey), Sweet Nothin's (Gina Mello), and Too Much Fun (Terry Hogan). Evelyn's classic Silk & Satin and her That's My Hat were floor fillers both Friday and Saturday nights.

Mike Sliter taught his beginner dance Over The Dam, his easy intermediate Shouldn't Be Doin' This and his newest creation ...Heartbreak Radio. (The Friday and Saturday evening dance floor was packed doin' his Cajun Girls & Gumbo which he premiered here in Southern CA at How Does It Start....again?? Workshop held in January).n

Neil Hale's newest dance ...Whole Lotta Peppas, was taught by Gene Morrill. Chris announced that Ricky Martin has re-released his mega hit "La Copa de la Vida" without the 2 beat tag and he played this new version for us ...the floor was so packed that my neighbor kept bumping into me on the last eight counts...that triple in place 3/4 turn can be a killer for inexperienced dancers...grins!

Lou Ann Schemmel taught Into The Arena (Michael Vera-Lobos) and Pot Of Gold (Liam Hrycan) and Michael Barr's beginner dance What Ever and his brand new 4 wall, 64 count intermediate dance Whats Your Name done to "Why Me" by Delbert McClinton ...MB entered this dance this weekend in new line choreography at Cowichan Goes Country ...it took first place ...*smiles*

Eric Sellers (Desperation Samba and Perfect Love) was in for the weekend from Sydney ...he taught Ian StLeon's brand new 4 wall, 64 count intermediate Sunset Stampede done to "Ride On Into The Sunset" by Barry Upton & Wild At Heart.

and I saw 3 different dances to the Poor Boy Shuffle music by The Tractors....Keep On Dancin' (Robert Boesel) and Poor Boy Shuffle (Vicki E. Rader). You can find these last two dances on Don Deyne's Information Super Dance Floor, and a perfect rendition of the Poor Boy Shuffle Mixer (Michale Barr & Michele Burton) ...only 2 pairs of dancers are needed ...2 innies and 2 outies. Kort and his dancin' friends ... the "Klones" (see photos) made this energetic dance come to life!

...and three dances that were choreographed to music that I love but the step sheets provided were not original ...Still The One by Justine Shuttleworth done to Shana Twain's "You're Still The One ...The Power by Simon Ward done to "The Power Of Love" by J C Jones ...and a dance on the top ten Aussie Charts ...Grandpa's Piano by Mark A. & Trevor Smith, Mustang Bootscoot Dance Company, Perth WA done to "Grandpa's Piano" by Adam Brand.


The dances are scanned copies of the choreographer's signed step description sheets in .pdf format. The only reason I decided to author this web site was my ability to get the exact original step description sheet on the World Wide Web and the fact that the Acrobat Reader is free and easily accessible on the Adobe Web site. If you don't already have Acrobat Reader on your computer; you do need to download it before you can print the highlighted dances.

This website is my personal hobby. The opinions expressd are mine. The frequent changes to "the look" ...because I will forget how HTML works, if I don't practice. Thanks to all of you who have noticed my mouse glitter!
