Jazz It Up ...

David Cook sings Billie Jean on American Idol ..the total inspiration for
Simon Ward's
The Smell of Your Sweet Perfume ...I missed the lobby teach on Saturday morning because he ran a muck of the schedule. I was able to dance it with his 5 o'clock class when the music for both Chemistry and The Smell of Your Sweet Perfume was played. THREE dancers told me that the music for 'perfume' just pumped through them while dancing this dance ...I was just making sure I had the pattern ...can't wait to feel what they felt. Simon will be teaching his dances at the first annaul Asia line dance cruise end of April. The sheets will be posted asap thereafter.

I attend events to see which new dances are filling the social floors, learn a few new ones, network w/instructors and most importantly, catch up with the friends who have become family.
I also do my homework ahead to decide which dances I want to learn imagine how frustrating it is to show up for one dance and see another 'inked in'. OR worse, hear the music for the dance you want to learn start playing on the lobby floor at the end of a teach. (I also heard demo's of dances happened at the LAPD event...though no indication of such was in my registration packet.)
Give or take, 100ish line dancers enjoyed this annual, primarily couples competition event 2nd weekend April 2008 which btw ..has been confirmed to fall on first weekend April 2009 at a new venue ...the Airport Marriott.
Lucky for me, the workshop price included a beautifully put together step book and I was able to teach myself that dance I missed!
The young swing dancers came into the line ballroom for the Thursday night party ...they were enthralled with Fuego and were excited to hear that Rachael would go ahead and teach it ...Simon had it down pat by the next evening social.
Rachael McEnaney has a brand new hair style and a brand new dance with a lot of pizazz!
Keep checkin'for
Jazz It Up

The preacher marrys in June, Carol will start collecting gift checks on Thursday 17th
Rev. Erik actually bonded this week with 'the first door guy' ..that is a plus!
The plan is to order, pick up, install and take away the old, non working sliding door. Erik has already landscaped the barren plot of soil on 'the preachers porch' as he now refers to the space directly beyond the patio door ...that is a REAL major plus! more.

Without the FUN of attending both local and out-of-town dance venues, I have no reason to learn & teach new dances. Choreographers HAVE to create; Instructors WANT to teach.
Dancers MUST support their local clubs, classes & socials, otherwise, NO line dance FUN period.
