@ 2014 Windy City Chicago!
Leave Me FIRST dance ever written by Cathy Dacumos (San Francisco Bay Area July 2014) is the FIRST dance to be youtubed & presented on her facebook page on a Sunday, taught during the week by nearly ALL instructors HERE and became an instant floor filler on the weekend. I posted her Sunday debut youtube on LineDanceFun. By August 3rd Leave Me = № 23 @ Copperknob downloads & has TEN youtubes (not counting Cathy's demos). Cathy has plans to enter her FIRST choreography, Leave Me, into the choreography contest @ 2014 Vegas Explosion.
Congrats to our famous choreographer, Julia Wetzel and to our FIRST time choreographer, Cathy Dacumos. We ARE Bay Area PROUD.
