2016 August Dance Blog

I can only teach one intermediate a week. If I teach 2 easy dances a week, I have to at least WALK, if not more, each time we dance them. The easy ones i.e. Rock and Roll Music are NOT on this BnB playlist.
INMHO, this is a fair playlist that represented the ~40 dancers at Centerville w/John on Friday at the classics/favorites dance.
M means I've been on the floor at the Moose w/this dance.
