Hello Everyone,

Last Sunday was unusually quiet for us with about 30% less dancers. Those who braved the change of
weather were rewarded with more room to dance. This coming Sunday night Judy & I will be teaching
the Tango.

The web site of the week was sent to me by one of my brothers from Florida. He attended a birthday
party at this shop last week & thought I would like the web site. It's a real time machine for some
of us. http://www.chopitkustom.com/
------------------------------------------
The song of the week is a nice, Tango, Argentine flavored, "Yira-Yira" I do not know the identity
of the Artist of Performers. Just watch it and enjoy.

----------------------------
Our tip of the week is a few condensed repeats from past newsletters.

~~ A tip for the guys... Lead then follow.
How do we do that?
1 - Our frame moves to lead the lady. (Lead)
2 - The lady reacts to us and begins the movement. (Follow)
3 - The lead & follow is switched off until needed again. (Partnering)

~~ The levels of learning
1. Beginning dancer. Knows nothing.
2. Intermediate dancer. Knows everything. Too good to dance with beginners.
3. Hotshot dancer. Too good to dance with anyone.
4. Advanced dancer. Dances with everyone. Especially with beginners.

~~ How to treat a lady while dancing
1. Keep it simple
2. Keep it pleasant
3. If she goes the wrong way, let her.
4. If she doesn't get the easy move try once more with a BETTER LEAD then move on.
5. If she asks "is that right" Tell her "It worked for me"
6. Thank her for the dance.
7. Encourage her to join the next "before the dance" group class.
8. Ask her to dance at least once more during the night and repeat the above.

~~ Are we ever good enough?
Not everyone can be the best dancer in the world. But, each of us can be better than we are with a
little thought & practice.

~~ A perfect dance is when
The music is felt in both your heart and feet.
Your partner is reading your mind and you move as one.
Those around you have faded into the background.
Every pattern works without a flaw
You wish it could go on forever

OUR POLICY:   Webmasters; You are granted permission to copy any content from our web site, provided that you provide a link to http://www.twosteptidewater.com (Contact us by email if you would like a reciprocal link). We are always looking for ways to make Two Step Tidewater Virginia THE PLACE for dance information in the Tidewater area (Norfolk VA, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake VA, Suffolk VA, Portsmouth VA, Newport News VA, Hampton VA, Hampton Roads VA, Yorktown VA, Gloucester VA, Jamestown VA, and Williamsburg VA) - and for other dance events or dance locations which are of interest to Tidewater (Southside and Peninsula) area Hampton Roads 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 (Suffolk Virginia, Chesapeake VA, West Norfolk Virginia, South Norfolk VA, Norfolk VA, Virginia Beach VA, Newport News Virginia, Hampton VA, Grafton Virginia, Yorktown VA, James City Virginia, Williamsburg VA, and the entire Southside and Peninsula of Tidewater) 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 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.
