Odds and Ends for this week's dance action in Tidewater

Hello Dancers... From our Weekly Newsletter

***********************************

Hello Dancers..

Judy and I are looking forward to spending Father's day out dancing. My
favorite activity! We hope many of you feel the same way and join us Sunday
night.

We thank Cherie for teaching the Schottische last week and Tony for
requesting it. This week we will review both the Schottische and the
Traveling Cha-Cha. Both are Partner Pattern dances and are danced to
Country-Western music. As June is West Coast Swing month we are teaching
another swing pattern after a review of last week.

Starting in July - Two Step lessons. We are changing our format also. During
the entire month we will be teaching basic Two Step at the 6:30 lesson all
month. We want to see if this format helps those who want to practice or
warm up prior to the second lesson. It will also give the beginners a chance
to understand the basics. If you are already past the basics the more
advanced lesson starts a 7pm.
**********************************************
Chesapeake Parks & Recreation Center.

Walter & Judy are starting the next series of classes in July. The schedule
follows. The cost is $21.00 for 6 weeks plus $5.00 more if you live outside
Chesapeake. It's a good way to get the basics and learn some fundamentals
about the different dances. The numbers for Chesapeake Parks & Recreation
are 382-8464 or 382-6411. They need to have a minimum of six students before
the class can start. Although you can register the first night of class we
ask that you call and have your name added to their list.

East Coast Swing I & II - (Rivercrest Community Center)
7/8 thru 8/12

Latin Dancing I & II - (Rivercrest)
7/9 thru 8/13

Social Dance - (Deep Creek Community Center)
7/10 thru 8/14

***************************************************
We have a new web site at our links page. The page was designed and in
maintained by Jeff Miller who is a dancer as well. You can check it all out
at http://www.swingvirginia.com/ Although we are part time swing dancers
Jeff has linked us to his site as well. If you visit his site let Jeff know
about the great swing music we play on Sunday night.
***************************************************
Speaking of Swing...
The song of the week is a West Coast Swing song written many years ago but
sung on this CD by the great vocalist Lou Rawls. The album is Lou Rawls -
Anthology (Capitol - 2000) and the song St. James Infirmary, is one of
several good swing song on this two disc set. The song has a rather slow
intro that sets the mood for the 114 bpm smooth groove from Lou. Come in
this Sunday to dance to this and more great dance songs.
***************************************************
Couple dancing frustrations:

The most frustrations in dancing and learning seems to be centered around
learning as a couple. I have run into very few couples that can learn and
practice together without developing static between them. You know how when
you walk across the rug and get zapped when you touch something? No matter
how  careful you are, SNAP!! That seems to be what happens between dance
partners. No matter how good your intentions are that static builds up. It
can't be avoided so lets look to redirect the static. When it starts to
build call a time out and change the subject. Skip over the problem and come
back to it later. Don't get another opinion unless it's your coach or
instructor. Why make someone else suffer. Agree to look at the problem from
a different perspective. If footwork is the problem work for awhile on frame
or styling. And men, according to my friend Perry Neal 75% of the
responsibility for completion of a move is the MAN'S. And I agree.

Any other ideas???

We are always looking for ways to make Two Step Tidewater Virginia THE PLACE for dance information in the Tidewater area (Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Newport News, Hampton Roads, Yorktown, Gloucester, and Williamsburg) - and for other dance events or dance locations which are of interest to Tidewater area dancers.  We prefer to exchange links with other dance-information sites.  To add a dance link, or exchange links with your web pages, email Will Harper or Walter Schultz.  Worthy dance events, may post to our web site by emailing a cut-and-paste ready announcement.  Your announcement can be just a text announcement or even a full web page.  We will host an ongoing web page, at no cost, for Tidewater Area dance-related activities, without their own web page.  Be sure to include date, time, cost, contact and location information for your event.  In exchange, we ask that anyone posting to our site, include a reference to http://www.twosteptidewater.com on your site and/or in your intra-group's mailing list emails.  (Not just C&W. We'll  include Ballroom, Swing, WCS, Disco, Folk, or just churches or other clubs with dances.)  We will attempt to post/remove events within a couple of days - but we cannot accept responsibility for missing an event or any other reason.  We will attempt to verify ALL links, to prevent any offensive or off-topic links, but, again, cannot be responsible for other's.
