July 13 Cul-de-Sac Dancing

      Comments Off on July 13 Cul-de-Sac Dancing

Let’s enjoy our Level 1 dances to some of the original music and some alternate music.
We will dance all of our Level 1 repertoire:
Ah Si
Cut a Rug
Simply Blue
Good Morning
Rockin’ the Wagon Wheel
Rita’s Waltz
Crash and Burn
My Blue Tree
Simply Mambo 
Stroll Along Cha
Plan:
We have danced our repertoire twice in the cul-de-sac.
We will just do one-wall walk-throughs.
Then we will turn on the music and enjoy.
Please remember the ground rules for our current virus situation:
– remain 2 meters apart — an arm extension on all sides is a perfect line dance space anyways
– remember that this is weather dependent — everyone will need to leave if the weather turns bad
– note that it is outdoors only — no washroom facilities
– wear masks please — although Faye will not be wearing a mask because it interferes with the microphone
Please remember:
– your water bottle
– good street shoes for an asphalt surface — probably solid runners or cowboy boots
Location:
In the cul-de-sac in front of 161/163 Morris
Please park above the cul-de-sac so that we have room to dance — up the hill from the garbage can
Date & Time:

Monday July 13
We will dance 6:30 until 7:30

Please let us know ASAP if you intend to come.  We can accommodate 20 dancers.
Priority will be given to Level 1 dancers, ….but we are inviting your other BVLD friends to join us.

…looking forward to dancing with you,
Faye (and Deb)

Let’s dance:

American Kids

Pocket of Hearts (not country, but fun)
