Oh Mama (Robbie McGowan Hickie)

How I decide what to teach to my classes besides listening to the MUSIC...
Emails ...thanks to Mel for Doors of Life and LaCreta for Oh Mama!
I see or hear what
new dances are filling our floors at the weekend socials.
I check Carol Craven's weekly international survey to see what's new on the list.
Every student can participate in this survey to vote for their 8 current favorite dances ...Carol has written exact directions on how to email her and vote. Voting takes place every SUNDAY. (On Mondays, I waddle home after eatin' that HUGE lunch with you all and I check my email and then her survey.) The more dancers who participate, the more accurate Carol's survey.

61 Monday Saratoga dancers were the first to learn Doors of Life this week. The music is the selling point. The original options were taught ...the syncopated vine was no worry, the ending paddle turn a bit fast for a dozen or so. I love how the music 'flurries'on a few of the paddle sequences an exclamation point on her lyrics! Listen for the "I feel it's nice to be 50!" I can paddle twice as long on that ending! MOST students didn't realize she was speaking English toward the end of the music week they will! The dance is so worth learning. I have never gotten so much advance email comments on the music as I have on this dance. 49 Thursday AM dancers gave applause this morning.

On FRIDAY JULY 6 Mike & Joyce will be the guest DJ's at BnB club at Swiss Park ...this is an ALL REQUEST evening social starting at 8pm ish. All Cupertino and Saratoga dancers are invited to be at the club that night. There will be NO 4th Saturday July dance in Cupertino ...The 4th Saturday Evening Social resumes August 25th at Hyde Middle School, Cupertino.
The BnB club is ~ 30 minutes from Cupertino if you drive 68ish ...the 880 now has 2 more lanes OPEN! (take 237 to 880 N to Mowry, turn L; turn R at the First corner gas station) really is just a conversation away if you carpool!
