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

Hello Dancers... From our Weekly Newsletter

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

Hello Dancers,

We had a great time Sunday. The Super Bowl kept a few away but we still had
a super turnout. Many thanks to Bob & Marge Gomez for teaching the first
lesson in Salsa Rueda. They will be continuing with more Salsa  Rueda this
coming Sunday. The second lesson will be on Night Club Two Step and taught
by Walter & Judy. We have a few ideas for the March lessons but nothing
firm yet.
**********************************
Song of the Week:
Last Saturday Rick Hockman played a wonderful Waltz sung by Jo Stafford &
Gordon MacRae titled "Whispering Hope" A little research found that they
recorded this song for a 78 rpm disc in 1949. I found a site where the
entire song can be played and saved as an MP3 file. It's a very good and
inspirational Waltz. Click on this link to check it out.
http://www.patfullerton.com/gm/songs/gordonsongs.html While on the site
check out Gordon MacRae's rendition of America The Beautiful performed live
on the July 3rd 1969 Ed Sullivan Show.
**********************************
Web Site of the Week: http://www.atlanticdancefaire.com/
Next weekend is the weekend of Josie and Cyndee Neel's Atlantic Seashore
Dance Faire held in Williamsburg. It is a weekend long event starting off
tonight and continuing through Sunday afternoon. We are attending and will
leave Sunday in time to host our own dance Sunday night. If you like to
dance and like to watch dancing this is the event to attend in the area.
**********************************
Dance Tip of the Week:
This week during our Chesapeake series we felt it was time to bring up an
important but seldom thought of dance concept.

If you are starting to dance on the one beat what are you doing before the
one beat? A little thought will put this concept before any musical beat
but let's look at how we start to dance. Even though we need  "steps"
something must get us there. If we are to take the first step on the, Left
for men Right for ladies, foot we are first supported and then propelled by
the opposite foot and leg. In other words our body is moving well before
the foot strikes the floor on the first beat of music. How our body moves
and how well we support out weight will determine how well we move with the
music and how well we dance with our partner. For each dance style we move
differently. Instead of lengthy explanations try a couple of different
types of dances on your own and pay attention to what happens before the
first beat and in-between every beat.

We were taught this concept several years ago and find that it is something
to which we dancers pay too little attention.

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.
