Here are the featured dances and reviews for the evening:

DH360 Line Dance Recap 7/12/17

The featured line dance at Dance Hall 360 for Wednesday 7/12/17 is “Can’t Walk Away“. With an easy to remember restart and tag, this dance features some well ordered everyday steps with camel walks and a full unwind. Not too hard with essentially only 3 direction changes per wall. The song is Thomas Rhett’s “Craving You”, a good blend of country and contemporary pop that can mix well on many dance floors, not to mention a nice west coast swing.

DH360 Partner Pattern Dance Recap 5/18/17

Tonight’s featured dance was Free Spin. We kept it on the easier side to have a good dinner from Pizza Pie and just ease into a night of dances.

Mark your calendars for these upcoming dates:
6/1/17: Open Dance with Sheryl (lessons TBD)
6/15/17: All I Want. An East Coast rhythm partner dance that’s sure to be a fun challenge!

M.A.E. Line Dance Recap 5/16/17

We’ve finally found a few little curveballs just easy enough to hit, yet enough of a challenge to get some of us having to think!

The Intro Level class had their first experiences with 3/4 turn sequences and a restart! We took some time to work on little drills that practiced the scissor step and turning and scuffing before attempting to tackle “Shattered Dreams”. They also received a bonus lesson of “Shake It”, which took all of 3 minutes to teach because they knew all the step already. It was only a matter of putting them in the right order!

The Beginner Level Class got a 2-fer treat as well! The class started off with a warm up and jumped straight into “American Kids”. It did not take long to actually learn the dance. The challenge was more about the speed of the dance and learning to take appropriately sized steps to accommodate that. With crunch time on the class ending, they got to experience “Emergency”. Most all the steps were very familiar with the group. Again, just a matter of putting them in the right order.
