Sunday night we will celebrate together the end of 2017! Theme for those who wish to have a bit of fun is Movies. Either come as a movie star….. looking forward to at least one Clark Gable…. or come as a movie title….Ghostbusters would be fun!
We start at 8pm and finish around 1am to see in the new year.
Survey of dance preferences.
Some weeks ago I requested that the Wednesday attendees of Rooty Hill Dance fill out a form listing all the dances that are played and taught at the club. The results of this survey are interesting and I thought I would share them with you.
The following list is in order of preference, with the Emmerdale most popular.
|President’s Daughters’ Waltz|
|New Vogue Waltz|
|Red Rose Saunter|
|Queen of Hearts Rumba|
|3 Step Medley|
|Pride of Erin Waltz|
|Sally Ann Cha Cha|
|Bossa Nova Blues|
|Evening 3 step|
|Jacqueline Cha Cha|
In total 33 people returned the forms. Many of the lists were incomplete but as far as possible I have included everyone’s forms.
Thanks to all who completed the forms.
Hi Everyone, Just to let you know about the dates etc for the coming Christmas season….
Last lesson night is 13/12/17 but there is dancing on the following Wednesday 20th December – just no lesson.
Last Saturday night will be 23rd December for the Christmas dance – THEN New Years Eve is on again on 31st December. Theme for that night is the Movies – Come as a movie star or as a movie title or as anything associated with the movies. We will be dancing to songs from the movies and hopefully the whole program will be movie music – some from long ago – some more recent!
Dancing then resumes after New Years Eve on Wednesday 3rd January and Saturday 6th January until next Christmas!!!
Looking forward to seeing you over the Christmas New Year period. If you are busy, I wish you a safe and happy time with your family over this important time. I thank you for your attendance and patronage over the last year.
July 15th is the annual Formal Night to celebrate yet another year of dancing at Rooty Hill RSL. I look forward to this each year to see everyone decked out in beautiful finery and the guys looking so dapper!
Don’t forget to polish the tiara, get the bow tie pressed and turn up looking spectacular to enjoy the night. See you then!
Next colour night is Pink on June 17th. So many different shades of Pink but any one will do. As always, if you have some to wear – we would love to see it, but not to worry if you choose not to. It is more important to come and enjoy your dancing.
We have almost finished the waltz for this year and I am hoping that many of you are feeling more comfortable with the freestyle Modern Waltz. having a little routine can make it a lot easier.
Part of what we have in the routine is the whisk. wing and open telemark so here is a little slowed down video to remind you of the footwork, and styling for these few figures.
May 20th is our next colour night and the colour will be WHITE.
Wear it with something, as part of another colour, or as just a little hint of White. It is just for fun and if by chance you forget or have nothing with white, don’t worry – we still love you to come and dance with us.
This is a demonstration by Stephano Olivero and his new partner following his previous partner Natalie Lowe going to the UK to join Strictly Dancing ( the UK version of Dancing with theStars). She has become one of the favourite professionals over there. I will put up the demo of her and Stephano following winning the New Vogue Australian Championships in another post.
