№ 3 on Copperknob just now; I Just Can't Let You Go (Will Bos and Aurélie Clota), a brand new add to the BnB floor w/8 votes. Danced perfectly! Amy will teach this one at Cactus Corners workshop Jan 18. Music: I Can't Stop Loving You by 'country rocker' Jessta James feat Emily Lynch. The rolling count 1-2&a3 pattern flows to this awesome music.
I Just Can't Let You Go 32/2 w/one restart & sway sway tag.
At 9:17PM, I hit the play button for I Just Can't Let You Go, JUST to let the 2nd Saturday dancers hear the music for Monday's teach ...OMG ....Laura C immediately DANCED one wall perfectly! That is all it took for the rest to get in line and learn the pattern. No time for a real teach w/music all the way through. I was bone tired and I KNOW they were. Feedback says I Just Can't Let You Go is a Class hit. 8 votes @ BnB and danced perfectly. The newest S F Bay Area Hit.

Rachael McEnaney & Arjay Centeno choreographed Blurred Lines, the № 1 event dance in 2013. I was THRILLED to be on the floor when Blurred Lines JAMMED the Wild Wild West floor in the Bay Area in September, Windy City in October and Las Vegas in November. Amy Glass & Will Craig choreographed Mirrors in 2013, is first contra dance EVER to go mainstream in the Bay Area since 1995 when Chris Kumre's Rednex Stomp was the dance to know. Will and Amy had 200+ in their classes @ the Vegas Explosion and then Mirrors jammed each night it played. I was on the jammed floor for Mirrors with my bestie @ Wild Wild West and @ Windy City!
Mirrors was the first dance of 2014 in Nashville @ the Worlds event! (Peg Moffitt Facebook).
2013 event jammers: Kreedom, Hurt Me Carefully, Showstopper, The Good Life, Waltzing at Twilight & WOW Tokyo.
I Hope You Find It and Shakin' My Head were taught @ Vegas Explosion and then jammed that floor each night.
The Bay Area's HELLO DOLLY (Lorraine Kurtela 2010)
was still a floor jammer at each event I attended in 2013.
