We have moved all activities to the Dancesport VA dance studio, which is much larger, and has an air conditioner which handles a larger crowd, more comfortably. (Note:  We are NOT DanceSport VA, we simply have an agreement with them to hold our dances there.)

~~~~ 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 Fridays.  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 Friday 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

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

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

Dance tip of the week:

Dancing is...Moving Your Feet - or - Moving Your Body?

Remember seeing those foot steps painted on the floor in "Learn to Dance" illustrations?  That kind of stuff makes people think that learning to dance means putting your feet in exactly the right spot is all that's needed.

For this dance tip let's see what looks more like dancing; someone stepping from spot to spot on a floor or someone standing still and moving their body to music. Try to picture both and you'll see the point. As usual, this illustration is overkill designed to make a point. I think the point needs making.

If we now think moving your body means something let's see how that works:

When dancing, our feet hit the floor more or less in time with music, but our bodies are almost always moving.

Stand in one spot, put on some slow music, and sway to the beat. You will find that you are in constant motion. If all movements are fluid and smooth it will be much more like dancing (moving) to music.

Body movement is a very important component to better dancers. When dancing you should keep this in mind but, also realize that it is not just randomly moving to music. In dancing, our body is moving in predetermined directions. We move forward & back, sideways, rotation in both directions, rise & fall, turning into contra position, sway from side to side & a combination of two or more together. There are rules for each. As a rule we seldom break forward or backward from the waist. "Although side to side sway looks like breaking at the waist it should only accentuated by stretching the one side without collapsing the opposite side."

The very good dancers realize not only what it take to move their body but also that the arms, legs, feet & hands are an extension of their body.
Every movement should begin with the body. Even a simple Latin walking step should begin with the body settling into the opposite hip. Once we take that step we realize our feet are not just moving from spot to spot. But, that's another story & another dance tip.

The next time you see those painted feet made to teach dancing we hope you get a chuckle out of it.

Song of the Week

The "Song of the Week", is a Bolero. (We are teaching Bolero in October) Dinah Washington's moderate hit, "Love Walked In" from the 1960 album with Brook Benton titled "The Two of Us" I have never heard it played as a Bolero but I like it. Hope you do also.
