Line Dance Fun
The Neil and Alice Show (A Country Western Dinner/Dance) was a sellout
at the Hayward Senior Center on Saturday night. Harry & Mary Bissett
are active members at the center and attended Neil Hale's classes at Swiss
Park when he began teaching in the late 80's. Line & couples (125+)
dancers from all over the Bay Area enjoyed good food, good fellowship
and the wood dance floor on a hot sultry August night. The 'guest' instructor
was Neil Hale who taught his brand new waltz,
Little Bit o'Ballroom.
The Show: Pete dancin' in drag; I have a new appreciation for that
man! HIS blonde wig upstaged the Green pageboys, but the three ladies
Instructor input makes up the
long playlist but it is Neil's ability to 'read' the dance floor that
makes the evening such a joy. We were on the floor non stop from 6 - 10
pm. He plays a mix of fast. faster, new and oldies at pace that leaves
even the diehards exhaused! MY favorites were played: Home,
& Red Bandana
(when the dance started, I thought how funny ....the ladies have now gotten
PETE involved with this bandana waving 'thingy' ....I was shaking my booty
on the last 8 counts and low and behold I felt a 'swish' of the bandana
from the 'gentleman, not' dancing behind me ...all in good fun of course
....I never saw so many smiles and so much 'verbal' whew whew during the
playing of this dance. I never saw so many who could dance Bluegrass
Waltz PERFECTLY! Neil's pre scripted Hayward Senior Center August Playlist.
