November 18 - 22 was 2015 Las Vegas Dance Explosion (Doug & Jackie Miranda Event Directors) 1400+ attendees from all over the World.
Five HUGE dancin' floors this year! Daytime Dancin' on the 'Lobby' floor was the addition that has propelled this Event to № 1 for ME. Bay Area DJ Van Liang kept the dancers happy w/one dance request after another in the 'lobby'. Cliché Love Song was the 'rush' to the floor in the main ballroom w/DJ's Louie and JP. The all request ballroom w/Jill was capacity on Fri & Sat Nite while the mainball room went through the cycle of REQUESTED daily workshop dances. The beginner ballroom w/Michael Diven had re caps of the daily teaches. I happened in around 11PM on Sat when Michael Barr did the walk for his 1998 TTS Boogie; so fun to dance this one w/all the other Bay Area dancers in the room. The beginner ballroom turned to all request after 11PM. Hooked On Country ...tried but failed to remember this oldie; same for 2007 Sea Salt Sally ..but ahh that song is STILL goin' in my head!
Dances taught that FILLED the main ballroom in prime time: New Thang, Don't Make Me Suffer, Never Been to Spain, Cliché Love Song (jammed), Dock of The Bay, Dirty Work, Elektrisk, Strip It Down, Get Your Shoes On, My Father's Son and Rose Garden (1999) and Feed the Fetish (2008). Dances taught w/NO following but not yet prime time floor fillers: Dark Times, Levels, Confident, and Running.
