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

Hello Dancers... From our Weekly Newsletter

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

Hello Dancers,

We are into May already! It seems like such a short time ago when we
celebrating New Years at the Virginia Beach Pavilion. That was four months
of Sunday dances ago and we thank all of you that attend each Sunday. Our
dance friends make the start of each week easier.

Along with May comes our first lessons in Country Two Step. Walter is
looking forward to this month and both Judy and Walter want to thank Jerry
and Peggy Porter for teaching the last WCS class.

May 9th, Mother's day, we will not be holding a Sunday dance. Judy and I
will be attending a dance event in Northern Virginia.

Next week, on Tuesday May 4th, Judy and I start our new Chesapeake Dance
Class series. The only change is that we are teaching Hustle right after
East Coast Swing on Thursday nights. The Hustle takes the place of WCS.
Email us if you are interested in any of the classes. They are reasonable
and well organized.
***********************************
}}} Tip of the week:
Finding dance music...

I am asked many times about my dance music collection. Many dancers want to
know where to find and how to recognize dance music. As I have stated
before you can purchase "made for dancing" music over the internet or in
the major music stores. If you want something to practice to this is great.
If you want music that is a little more it takes a little more work.

We subscribe to the Dish Network. On that network, one step above basic,
they offer about 30 full time music channels. This is where about half of
my music ideas come from. Judy and I seldom watch TV but keep the music
channels on when we are home and indoors. The easy listening channel is
good for finding Waltz music the Jazz & Blues channels offer many songs
that make good Cha-Cha, WCS and Samba music. The country channels have a
good mix of Country Two Steps & Swings. and the Latin channels have what
else but Latin. I would imagine that Direct TV has these channels also. I'm
told that Cox does too but at their prices you would want more out of the
service than music.

I get another 10% of my "new" dance music from my old albums, cassettes,
and 8-tracks. I have several hundred albums alone which were mostly
purchased before I was a dancer. On the rare free night I pull out a couple
of Dean Martin, Beach Boys or Jazz albums and rediscover many good dance
songs.

I also "find" many great songs on the local radio stations. WFOS 88.7 is a
favorite. Weekdays afternoons features the "Blues Traffic Jam" where you
can find a good WCS every third song or so. Late nights are the "Big Band"
songs. From classical to rock they don't seem to get in a rut.

On WHRV 89.5 listen to Jazz with Jae Sinnett from 9pm to Midnight. He gets
on a roll sometimes and has many great dance songs. Saturday evening from
8:30 to 11pm afternoon Neal Murray hosts his "Saturday Night Fish Fry".
As usual, the country stations provide some good music but not as much as
before.

If you are into Latin, tune into WHOV 88.1 Saturday mornings from 7am to
11am for some great Latin hosted by Roberto.
