Line Dance Fun ©2002 Doris Volz CA,USA Crush Country Line Dance Festival Report - History of line dance
The 2001 Las Vegas Country Western Dance Finale, primarily known only has a couples event, Rhonda Shotts - line dance coordinator, kicked off for ~ 125 line dancers on Thursday evening at 8pm with a welcome 'early bird dance' (which turned into a sometimes oldies marathon ...how fun to try and remember the hits of yester years!). Friday noon began the line dance workshops (~36 different ones) ...with workshops ending Sunday at ~ 4pm. Most hourly time slots had either one or two linedance workshop choices going back to back with couples two step, night club two step, cha cha, west coast swing, and/or waltz given by top couple instructors (including MR. Hold Your Horses - AT Kinson). The line dance instructors included Max Perry, Kathy Hunyadi, Doug Miranda and Jackie Snyder, Michael Barr and Michele Burton, Michele Perron, Mark Cosenza, John Robinson, and Donna Caudill who also taught 'technique'. Use the google toolbar to search for all dance sheets mentioned.
Flling the social dance floor: Jo Thompson's Splish Splash, Dizzy and brand new No Bridges, Max Perry and Michele Perron's Sorrento, Do Your Thing (Max Perry w/others), Now or Never and Weak In The Knees (Kathy Hunyadi), City Limits and Some Girls (Yvonne Anderson), Chomping at the Bit, Checker 'er Out, Rhumba Ride, Kick n' Drag and Hootchie Dance (Larry Bass), American Pop (Michele Burton), Mony Mony (Maggie Gallagher), I Said I Love You (Teresa Lawrence & Vera Fisher) Paradise Cha (Michelle and Mandy Bain), Simon Ward's A New Day Has Come and Larger Than Life, Michael Barr and Michele Burton's Midnight Rendezvous , S.X.E. (Rob Fowler), Cowboys and Switches and Swing Time Boogie (Scott Blevins), All My Heart (Bill Bader), Hold Your Horses (Kinson/Mickers), Mambo #5 (Machado/Lee), Too Funky For Me (Mark Cosenza w/others).

AND We wanted Joni Harms singin' Two-Steppin' Texas Blue when we danced John Robinson's BackTo Bein' Blue ...his C'mon, C'mon, Jive Walkin', Feel The Rush and Honey What?! filled the floor. AND John's Shame On You went over big time but we wanted him to play the slower music ...Shame On Us!

Doug and Jackie Miranda led us in their Circle Of Life, Tiggeriffic, Queen of my Heart, Sugar, Sugar, Dreams to Share, Jacaranda and their brand new energetic Seal Our Fate. Their dances can be found at DJDancing.com

JP Potter, our weekend all request DJ (his purple & black hat was a fashion hit) danced his Deja Vu & Candlelight with us. His website: JP-Potter.com

Dynamite packed into a small package ...Canadian Michele Perron lead the jam packed floor with her brand new Morning, Noon, and Night (reminds me of her SMASH hit Madly Off In All Directions), Sorrento (co-created with Max Perry) and MJ Moves & TGIF (co-created & even danced on Saturday nite with Jo Thompson) AND we all did sing along with her while doing her Singalongmysong! Michele publishes all her dances at MichelePerron.com. My highlight ...watching her duo dance S.X.E. with John Robinson (he had to reach down more then she ever reached up!) ...and WCS 'ing with Tim Szymanski ...He did bring Jo along to surprise us and we Splish Splashed with her til we were all dizzy! The energy on the dance floor was so high at 11pm ...most dancers were pulsing in the darkness ...yeah, John brought those blinky lites to his table again!

Bottom Line: Event Directors Jame Strough & Lynn Martinez selected a great line dance coordinator. The huge floors were wood, the workshops instructors were fabulous and the Vegas weather was perfect. This event happens every first weekend in December ...google the event for 2003 information.
