As we prepare to start another month, Judy and I thank all the dancers who came out to our dances in June. The Sunday night dances were very well attended as was the Friday Social and Swing dances.

The Saturday C&W dance was not well attended. Let us hear from you. We enjoy C&W dance music, we enjoy working with Russ & Tina, we added line dance and we are keeping the dance affordable. Is there something we are missing or should C&W just go away outside of the clubs? We need your input please....

Come on out dancing this Sunday!! Long Sunday hours.... 6:30 - 11pm

In July:

Group Class Series - Every Wednesday for 4 weeks - $10.00 per class or $35.00 for the series

7-8pm - Bronze American Waltz
This is a syllabus class that is designed to teach Waltz to the beginner dancer. It is also a good tune up class for those who have moved beyond and wish to get back to basics. We encourage those signing up for this class to plan for the entire series.

We will be offering certain classes such as this Waltz class as a structured class that you can use as a "Foundation" for that dance. The class will be followed later in the year by an intermediate class. How soon depends on the attendance for the first series.

For these "Foundation Classes" we are offering something better than a guarantee. If you signup for the series and pay $35.00 you can attend the class every time it is offered within the next 12 months for nothing. Given our current schedule, this class will probably be offered 2 to 3 more times within a year. When we offer the Intermediate classes we will make the same offer to those who have taken the Bronze class. This is a very good deal for those who want to stay within a graduated dance instruction program. It will give those in the program a chance to keep taking the class each time it is offered. If this concept works for us we may extend the time period past a year. This is a new concept for us and we are hoping we can attract more dancers to the group classes.

The only catch is that we will ask you to rotate partners on your own to "assist" the new dancers just as you would during any social event.

Again...
1. Sign up this upcoming Bronze Waltz class for the full 4 weeks $35.00.
2. For the next 12 months you can repeat this class every time it is offered.
3. If you take the full Bronze or beginner class we will make the same offer to you for the Intermediate classes.
4. Pay once and take the same series over and over again for a year!

Also on Wednesday 8-9pm - $10.00 per class or $35.00 for the 4 weeks.

Advanced Hustle Moves class. Not much technique only some real cool Hustle moves. We will be teaching one Advanced pattern each week. We will finish each hour with practice time to slow and moderate tempo Hustle music. We teach Detroit style Hustle. (Three count, begins on the Slow or One beat, danced mostly in a slot)

We will not be reviewing the series at the last class and will only offer limited review each week. There will be four separate patterns taught during the series. Each is very cool and each can stand alone. These are not the same that we taught for the Intermediate series. Learn some or all four!
***********************************************
Social Dances for July - Sunday $5.00 & Friday $8.00 This Sunday 3rd - 6:30 - 11pm - Beginner Two-Step (Extra Hour!) More Line Dance during the last hour!

Hello Everyone,

They were opened this past weekend on Friday and Saturday night, but  haven't been opened since then. I'm excited.....to have a "New" dance club in town.

We will no longer be holding dances at our former location, A Time to Dance, Dance Studio.  We will be moving all activities to the Dancesport VA dance studio, which is much larger, and has an air conditioner which handles a larger crowd, more comfortably.
~~~~ About "DanceSport VA" - The DanceSport VA studio is located on Arrowhead Drive between Princess Anne and Newtown Rd. From the Expressway take an exit onto Newtown Road South, turn left on Princess Anne then Right onto Arrowhead just past Big Al's muffler. The parking lot is not large but there are plenty of nearby business with parking room at night and on Sundays.  One, very convenient parking area is in front of the small "strip mall" which fronts on Princess Anne, only a hundred feet or so from the studio, on Arrowhead.

The studio has a large (3000 sq ft) dance floor as well as a separate smaller (2000 sq ft) dance floor. It is a very clean, well maintained studio. They also have dance shoes and apparel for sale. They have a very good Air Conditioning system. The DanceSport staff has been very supportive of us and will make everyone feel welcome. We have been assured that we can have Sunday night without interruption throughout the year.  Note:  Two Step Tidewater Virginia is NOT affiliated with DanceSport VA, or with ANY dance studio.  We simply rent dance floor space for our dances.  We hope everyone who has enjoyed the social dance on Sunday will continue to attend. We will do everything we can to make this transition as smooth as possible.

You can check out the studio and find a photo.  Click on the link "DanceSport VA" or go to http://www.twosteptidewater.com/quick_links_page.htm

Judy and I are offering Private and Group lessons in most dances. Please contact us if interested.

We would also like to get something started in the Churchland, Western Branch area of Tidewater. If you know of an organization, club or church that may be interested in working with us please contact us.


Below is a sample of a weekly dance tip. More are posted at this link Dance Tips Menu

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

Dance tip of the week:

Are the Judges correct? (Referring to ABC-TV Dancing with the stars show on 6/29/05)

I'm sure many of you dancers have been watching the weekly live series on ABC called "Dancing with the Stars" As in any competition we all have our favorites but what about the judges. Were you like Judy and I and mostly agree with the Judges comments or do you feel they were wrong?  (Note:  Dance Judges are ALWAYS RIGHT, If you feel that the Judges are wrong, please re-read the previous statement.)

The dance tip of the week is for everyone who dances. Watch the show and look for what you need to look for if you were judging. We aren't judges but we do have our opinions and have listed below is what we would look for. Does anyone agree or disagree?

1. Does the dance look recognizable? Or, are there too much theatrics?  Remember one of the "Foxtrot's" was wonderful to watch, but the Judge chastised them - They were doing what would have probably won them a  medal, if the dance event was called "Cabaret," but their dance was NOT Foxtrot!

2. Was the Posture appropriate for the dance style?  Each dance has an appropriate mood and style, and, in particular, the "smooth" dances (Foxtrot, Waltz, Tango, and Paso-Doble) all have distinct requirements for appropriate posture.  Watch your favorite dancers, no matter what they are dancing -- now notice their posture.  Do you see something distinctive?

3. Timing, is it crisp or sloppy?  One of the easiest distinctions between "just dancing" and "gee-whiz" dancing is crisp moves by the dancers, in perfect time with the music and it's proper phrasing.

4. Selection of music? Is it good for the dance style or not?  If you watched the Paso-Doble's only one of the dancers selected an appropriate Paso-Doble music piece.  It's very hard to LOOK CHARACTERISTIC for the dance, when the music isn't characteristic.

5. Costume? Is the dancewear appropriate for the dance style. (except for one couple mostly not on this show) 6. Flexibility and smoothness of movement. Do the dancers flow across the floor and move cleanly together?  If you watched this show, most of the costumes would have been far more appropriate for "Latin" dances (Rumba, Bolero, Cha Cha, Mambo) than for the smooth dances that were being judged.

If you can recognized the above traits in the dancers performing you already know far more about dancing than you think. If you don't, try to practice next Wednesday. (Tape the show while you are attending our classes)

Song of the Week

Since the "Dancing with the Stars" (Wednesday nites at 9:00 PM on ABC-TV) was featuring the wonderful Foxtrot, the song of the week is also a great Foxtrot by Bobby Darin - "I Guess I'll Have To Change my Plan". My copy is off his Mack the Knife, The Best of Bobby Darin album. This song was written and released a long time before this Bobby Darin version from 1961. The others are good but I like this the best. Come hear this and other great Foxtrot music each Sunday night.

Web Site of the Week

http://www.census.gov/Press-Release/www/releases/archives/facts_for_features_special_editions/004772.html
Web Site of the week is one devoted to the numbers associated with the celebration of our Independence Day, July 4th. Lot's of trivia here!

**********************
http://abc.go.com/primetime/dancing/index.html

Dancing goes prime time on network TV!

ABC-TV has made a bold move putting this type of show in prime time. But, it's a neat concept. Professional dancers teamed up with celebrities. After watching too many actors trying to look like dancers this should be much more realistic (we hope). They will be competing in choreographed Cha-Cha & Waltz routines so we may not get to see too much of actual learning or practice. We just hope the camera sticks with the dancing long enough for us to pick up a new move or two!

Is the American Broadcasting Network and the local affiliate WVEC Channel 13 taking a chance? After the big sensation that the latest Shall We Dance movie stirred up it might not be a big of a chance after all.

In our opinion we think it's a good start toward moving this fantastic activity closer to public acceptance once again. But, like any activity, it's better when experienced in person so tape it for later while you come out for our Country Two-Step group series.

View or tape this show starting Wednesday June 1st at 9pm. Live in Hampton-Roads or Tidewater? Check your local Virginian-Pilot or Daily Press for up to date program listings. Live out of the area? The above ABC link can direct you to your local station.

~~Thursday July 13th - Sunday July 17th Virginia State Ballroom Dance Competition at Reston VA (in DC, near Dulles Airport).  If you have never been to attend one of these, you are missing a dance event of great benefit to any dancer.  Virginia State is one of the PREMIER competitions, and attracts the world-class competitors.  NOTE:  you will do much better to book through a local studio for a "package" deal including hotel etc.


~~Every Sunday - Dance at Two Step Tidewater Dance,  at "A Time to Dance" (The lighted neon sign on the front of the studio still says "Ballroom Dance Club.")   6:30pm to 10pm - Walter & Judy's social dance - Beginner dance lesson at 6:30. This Sunday we are having a Beginner Country Two-Step dance  lesson prior to our Sunday Social Dance beginning with a beginner class at 6:30. At 7:00, we begin the party with a mix of Ballroom, Swing, Latin and Country Western. Refreshments served $5.00/ per person Call 483-9410 for information.  Sunday June 26th - 6:30 - 10pm - Mixed Social dance with beginner Tango lesson. Come early, come late but come out and take advantage of extra long social dance. $5.00 includes all. We are going to try more line dance toward the end of the dance. Bring your favorite music 'cause all my line dance music is OLD!

Come on out dancing this Sunday!! Long Sunday hours.... 6:30 - 11pm

~~NOTE:  All Two Step Tidewater activities will be held at Dancesport VA dance studio.  (Remember this, if we miss some place and it still says "A Time to Dance.

~~ Every Sunday - Roberto is USUALLY (sometimes they cancel) at Langley AFB in Hampton for a Champagne-Brunch-dance.  Some fantastic deal!  You pay for the dancing, and they give you the brunch and champagne for free....  You can dance off the meal, and there will still be plenty of time to get from the buffet to our regular Sunday Two Step Tidewater Dance.  So, if you can get on the base, treat your lady once-in-a-while.
