Western Dance Club
Dances Recently Taught
Hazard- Dave & Lesley Mather We heard this music and jut had to write a dance to it. We taught this at the Brymbo Partner Festival in North Wales.
Good At Waltzin'- Dave & Lesley Mather We were looking for a more up-tempo waltz and so we came up with this one. Can you cope with this one. We taught this at the Teme Valley Partner Festival.
Mayflowers - Dave & Lesley Mather Ever wanted to do a partner dance to a Two Step rhythm? Well try this one, it fits to any medium paced Two Step. Might need a bit of practise but you'll find it's worth the effort!!
Limelight Waltz - Diane Jackson Expertly choreograph for Brymbo. Many thanks to Diane Jackson for this one.
Angels & Alcohol - Carol & George Stayte It seems that everyone prefers the alternative track on this dance.
Paradise - Pat & Sue Griffiths This is an old dance that we taught as a request. We changed the music from the original as we found it went really well to 'Little Chapel' by Heather Myles from her 'Sweet Talk and Good Lies' album. Try it, you may like it!
In Front Of The Fire - Jeff & Thelma Mills
We've had a busy Easter holiday teaching 3 new dances at the Rockytops Brymbo Festival in North Wales. We taught the following dances and they all proved very popular.
Fire & Ice - Dan Albro & Genna Cookson (This was taught as a request dance. It must be at least 15 years old but is still a good dance)
Like A Rose Together - Lois Lightfoot & Andrea Glanvill (Another partner dance adapted from a linedance)
The Blue Grass Waltz- Diane Jackson (A golden oldie revised to a lovely track by Kenny Rogers called 'Somebody Feels like A Fool')
Honkytonk For Two - Carol & George Stayte (Our class preferred this dance to the alternative track by Donny Richmond called 'Next Times')
Spirit Of The Angel - Jeff & Thelma Mills (Another lovely dance from a few years ago that we were asked to revisit)
I Told You - Dave & Lesley Mather (This is one of our earlier dances that we were asked to revise at our club)
First Fool - Dave & Lesley Mather (This is our latest dance. We taught this at the Teme Valley Partner Festival last weekend and it proved very popular)
Island Time - Diane Jackson (This is an old dance from 2001, we did this as a 'Gold Oldie' request. The music is still often played in clubs as the linedancers do Lamtarra Rumba to it)
Just A Kiss - Ann Williams/Robert McGowan Hickie (This is an old dance from 2002, we did this as a 'Golden Oldie' request)
March/April 2014 (These 3 dances were the ones taught at the Brymbo Festival 2014)
During November we also revised a couple of older dances. We did:
Me Missing You - Ann Williams
Spanish Gentleman - Ann Williams (The class enjoyed this dance but asked that it could be done a little faster, so we have been looking at other tracks up to 134 bpm. It works well at this speed)
Tequila Sunset - Christine & Norman Parker (Another 'Golden Oldie')
The Trail of Tears - DJ Dan & Wynette Miler (This is a dance from 2008, taught as a request. It's choreographed to a great track. Well worth learning.)
Cherry Pie - Dave & Lesley Mather (A brilliant track called 'Little Yellow Blanket' by Dean Brodie. We taught this at the Brymbo Easter festival)
Nothing's Changed Here - Heather & Fred Staddon (We danced this one to 'The Wanderer' by Eddie Rabbit. It fits great!)
Even Closer - Eve Blay (This dance was revised as a 'Golden Oldie'. The track is still played for linedancers in many clubs. Why shouldn't we partners enjoy it too.)
She's Not You - Irene Lloyd (This little dance was revised form the year 2000. It can only be done to the Elvis track and is a little bit of fun!)
Knock Knock - Chris & Trev (This is done to the popular line dance track, 'Knock Knock' by Jack Savoretti)
We Danced On - Carol & George Stayte (We danced this to the Gord Bamford track, 'Disappearing Tail Lights'. This is a great sound, you just want to dance to it)
Stepping Out - Jeff & Thelma Mills (This dance is about nine years old but has recently been revised at a festival. You can have fun with this one.)
We All Bleed Red - Kalvin & Pat Finch (There was a mixed reception for the track that this dance is choreographed to, some loved it, some didn't. It's a track that has grown on me since I first heard it.)
Hudson Valley Cha - Dan Albro (This dance has gone down very well at Silverwings, although most people prefer it to a slower track than the one on the script. I have tried it to 'The Most Beautiful Girl' by Charlie Rich, this seems to meet with the club's approval.)
Goodbye Blues - Chris & Andy Malpass (This dance is from 2007 but is still worth doing. It goes well to any mid tempo Two Step rhythm)
LegLess - Jeff & Thelma Mills (If you want a bit of a work-out, try this dance to the Nappy Brown track! However my favourite track is 'Love Calls' by James Intveld)
One More Thing - Chris & Andy Malpass (Another of the dances taught at both Brymbo & Barnwell, Easter 2012)
Triple Tipple - Dave & Lesley Mather (This is the latest dance from Dave & Lesley. It was taught at both Brymbo and Barnwell festivals over the Easter weekend. The dance is meant to be done in a smooooth fashion, don't rush it. It can be done to most music in the range 85 to 100 beats per minute)
I Love You This Big - Chris & Trev (Danced to a lovely track that has really grown on me since I first heard it. This guy has a great 'Country' voice.)
El Dorado - Jim & Nen Godsall (This dance was recommended to us recently and was well received by the class)
PeterBlue - Dave & Lesley Mather (This dance was choreographed to a new track by Pete Redfern called 'I'm Gonna Be Blue'. If you
Never Forgotten - Jeff & Thelma Mills (A tricky little dance but well worth the effort of learning it)

Timeless - Carol & George Stayte. (A lovely new dance released last weekend quickly gaining popularity)
Don't Look Away - Diane Jackson. (A dance revived from 2005, choreographed to a lovely track by Gary Allan)
