Thanks once again for the support we are getting each Sunday and during our Group Classes.

We want to wish everyone "Good Luck" who will be dancing at Virginia State Competition this weekend. We wish everyone a safe trip and great dancing!!!!

This Sunday we are hosting another Social dance and teaching Mambo from 6:30 - 7pm. Afterward the dance will continue until at least 10pm.

We are also giving everyone an early reminder about our July 22nd Swing dance. As in the past, this dance is co-hosted by Walter & Judy - Brad & Janene. Same time and cost. Same great music.

The Foundation Series Bronze Waltz class has been so successful we are adding another series in August as well as continuing the Waltz with the next Bronze level.

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!

In August...
Wednesdays 7-8pm
Bronze Two Waltz - If you signed up for the Bronze Beginner Waltz Series and sign up for this August Series we are offering the same package as in July. Sign up for this Series and take it again free every time it repeats within the next year.

Wednesdays 8-9pm
Beginner Two-Step - We have put together the same package for this dance as we have for the Waltz. If you sign up for the entire 4 week series you can repeat the class each time it is offered within the next year for free.

***********************************************
Social Dances for July - Sunday $5.00 & Friday $8.00   Sunday 24th - 6:30 - 10pm - Beginner Hustle: Sunday 31st - 6:30 - 10pm - Beginner American Tango

There will be another Country-Western dance on a Saturday date & time TBA.
*************************************************************************************
Hello Everyone,

The "New" Saddle Ridge has had their "Grand Opening" this past Thursday  night.  It's located in Hampton..... in Power Plant Center..it's in the same parking lot as "Joe's Crab House" and the "Pro Bass Shop". You can see it from Interstate 64 on your left coming from Virginia Beach.  The doors open @ 5:00pm. The cover change is $5.00. Mike & I will be there. 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. Coming soon.....Cindy, of Country Bootlegger fame, will be teaching line dance & partner lesson there. She has been talking with the Manager and Event Director about the arrangements. I will keep you posted on when the classes will start and which nights.  Hope to see you there on Thursday night.

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

************************************
Social Dance with group lesson every Sunday at "DanceSport VA"  http://www.dancesportva.com/  Come at 6pm to warm up - Stay and practice while we clean up. Dance & lesson gives you over 4 hours for $5.00. Refreshments are included.
**************
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:

You like potato and I like potahto
You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto.
Let's call the whole thing off

Remember the song?

It brings to mind the discussions on dancing. Is Hustle &123 or 12&3? I watch "&1" Hustle instructors demonstrate moves by stopping after the "&1"
and starting the pattern on the "2". Although I can't reconcile myself to do that, and feel the music and dance starts on the "one", once we get moving it all works out until we stop. I enjoy dancing one way and others prefer something different.

In Salsa do you can break on the "1" or on the "2" or on the "5" or "6"? I dance Salsa/Mambo on the "Two" and use my body to accent the "Four-One".

Most Salsa dancers use their feet to accent the music. I don't but I watch, admire and listen to them and even switch when the need arises.

I spent several hours researching the Mambo/Salsa/Hustle comments and discussions on the internet tonight and have only concluded that good dancers should dance the way they and their partner feel comfortable. That doesn't make some "right" and others "wrong". Dancers feel and interpret the music differently and the music varies from song to song and style to style. We also dance the way we were taught. We also stopped telling "Left Handed" students they were wrong years ago. The social dancer is only "wrong" when making their partner uncomfortable or causing chaos on the dance floor.

The dance tip part is this. When taking a class listen to the instructor and try it the way it's being taught. That doesn't mean you have to dance that way later but is does mean you can add another viewpoint to you knowledge base. More knowledge means you know more about a particular subject.

I think flexible dancers are better than rigid ones.

Thought for a day..

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. ~~ Thomas Jefferson ~~

PONDER THIS!

"Life is not a journey to the grave

with the intention of arriving safely

in a pretty and well-preserved body,

but rather to skid in broadside,

thoroughly used up,

totally worn out,

and loudly proclaiming:

WOW!! What a Ride!"
(Let's Dance!!!)

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

Song of the Week

The song of the week is a Mambo. Caterina Valente & Edmundo Ross - "La Bamba" It's lots faster than the music we will be teaching with but gives you and accurate feeling of the Mambo. Very, very similar to Salsa but not entirely.

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!

Did you catch it?  It's over, but the results are still posted on their web site.

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.

11:00 - 12:15 Lead/Follow Technique (for all lead and follow partner dances) - Tips on techniques for leaders and followers.  12:30 - 1:45 Spins & Turns plus Floor, Body, & Partner Connections:  3:00 - 4:00 Available for TSDC "Private" lesson - this could be for as few as 2 people. Ken will cover whatever we want and you'll get more personal attention than in a usual workshop. He's charging a flat fee ($75) that would be divided between the participants.  8:00 - 9:00 Pre-dance workshop - Hustle.  9:00 - 12:00 Open Dancing - West Coast Swing plus about 10-20% mix.  The regular workshops are $12 for early registration and $15 at the door. (If you go, ask Ken if he'll let our group pay just $12 a the door.) The night dance (including lesson) is $10.  All lessons and the night dance will take place at the Municipal Arts Center in Charlottesville VA. You can find more info and contact information at http://www.dancebuddies.com/Jul30.htm  If you're interested in going up for some or all of this, you can email the club and we'll help get people together for car pools and room sharing.  Charlottesville VA is a fun place to visit and they have a very friendly dance community. If you don't get up there this time, keep it in mind for future dance get-aways!

~~ 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.
