 Cruisin' Copperhead Road    

32 counts, Easy Intermediate, Song by Steve Earle

                                        Written for my Urban workshops in May

This song gets inside you and it is easy to dance to in spite of the fact that it needs several tags to keep the dance in time to the music.  They are an

integral part of the dance  and it wouldn’t feel the same without the tags.

So, don’t let them put you off – it is really not a hard dance at all.

                                        The waltz is slow, which makes it much harder to do because you can’t

                                        fudge any of the steps and you balance and timing is much more critical.

Thanks for the song and I hope you enjoy the dance.

64 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate level. Song by Kurt Darren

Looks harder on paper than it really is… it’s a good fun dance that

is easy to learn. Don’t forget to shimmy while you do the paddle turns - 

and the prissy steps on the spot need attitude too!

This is the same singer who sings Af en Af (Happy Dance) and once

 again you can’t understand a word he sings. 

The English translation is ridiculous…..  perhaps it’s better in Africaans?

My grandma and your grandma sitting and gossiping very
My grandma said to your grandma "That drawer walk again turns"
He looked like a rooster, Aunty
Kitten of course, he picks the moon, and he is not even ashamed ...

And I say "Hey now, hey now aiko aiko auntie"
My heart is full I'm in the spot
And nothing will get me by.
And I say "Hey now, hey now aiko aiko auntie"
I'm a mighty mouse, I walk through the house
And the cat will not find me.

My grandfather and your grandfather sitting here at the fire
They talk about the days, the good old days
For the old lady is not here
Stovepipe broke a Brylcreem kuf, aiko aiko auntie
Kitten of course, he picks the moon. Yes!
Nothing has changed.

Choir

And nothing will get me by
And the cat will not find me.

Rodeo's Rose                  48 counts, 4 walls, Intermediate Level Waltz, Song by Brendon Walmsley

                                        It's a little tricky until you get the timing right, but gee, the song is

                                        so nice to dance to that it is worth the effort. It's truly an Australian

                                        creation because Brendon is a fellow Aussie!  Hope you like the dance.

Mi Amore                       32 counts, 2 walls, Upper Beginner, Song by Frank Galan

                                        This is a lovely song that Ilse has sent to me.  She requested a beginner dance 

                                        so I hope that is what this dance is -  although with 2x 12 count tags I doubt it!

                                        That’s why I called it Upper Beginner which is probably more appropriate.

                                        These days it is hard to recognise exactly what a ‘beginner’dance is supposed to be.

                                        Whatever… I hope you enjoy the dance as well as the song!  I know I did!

Tiger By The Tail            32 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate Level, Song by Buck Owen

I’ve never had a tiger by the tail …. Well, not literally anyhow. But I am  familiar  with the feeling of holding onto

something that is pulling me  forward faster then I really want to go and being  too scared to let go in case it turns

around and bites me.  I guess that’s what it feels like to have a tiger by the tail… my line dance career has been a          bit like that at times!  (-:   AND I BET THAT’S NOW TIGER WOODSFEELS LATELY!! Hehehe

This dance is easy but it’s not for new beginners.  It feels a bit familiar to me at the end and I think it is

Pick A Pocket that it’s reminding me of….  Do you  remember the bit where we used to run fwd and be silly?

Hope you can still remember how to skip  -  it’s been a long time!

Mexican Shuffle             32 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate. Song by Tony Christie

first 1/4 turn, at the start of the dance. That  was the reason for putting it there.

No Difference                 32 counts, 2 walls, Intermediate Level, Song by Rickie Pangkerago

                                        I wrote this dance in response to the following request by Muriel.Gravemaker from Amsterdam.

‘May I ask you to write a dance for me and my friends. We are a group of men and women

with their roots in  former Nederlands Indie, now known as Indonesie.  I have a wonderful song,

 from an Indonesian country singer.  He sings about all the people of the world, white, black,

 rich, poor, who are in God’s eyes, all the same.   Could you please name the dance, “No Difference”.’

It’s not a hard dance in spite of the intermediate level grading, so give it a go.

It’s slow and emotive and I hope you enjoy it!  Our dancers love it.

Mexican Snow                64 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate level, Song by Reba McEntire

                                        This dance was written by request for an easier dance to this lovely song.

We still do Rosalie Mackay’s terrific dance, Til It Snows In Mexico, but many dancers have to sit it out…..

So here is a dance that I hope you will all manage.  It’s not a beginner dance by any means, But if you

have been dancing for a year or so, you will manage it, no problems!

Hope you enjoy Mexican Snow…. Bet the Mexicans would  - if they could only get some! (-:

Memory Loss                 32 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate level, Song by Leanne Womack

Terry Hogan wrote a lovely dance to this music some years ago  -  and we still do it in our classes. 

However, it is too hard for some of our people and this little dance should ensure that everyone is able to

get on the floor when the music comes on.  I hope there are others out there who will also appreciate the

simplicity of the dance because the music really feels lovely to dance to.

Waltz With You                   48 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate, 108 bpm, Song by Teddy Thompson

                                                  I wrote this dance as an easy alternative to Terry Hogan’s ‘All I Want’.

                                      Although easy, this dance still has a bit of a challenge about it and is not intended

                                                  as a  beginner dance.  I have typed the lyrics of the song on the step sheet so you can

                                                  sing along as you dance.. Just sing ‘all I want to do is waltz with you’ instead of

                                                  singing  all I want to do is live with you’.  It’s such a beautiful song!

                                                  people out there…. Hope  you enjoy them both!

Half A Nip Of Baileys             WATCH ON YOU TUBE  http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=C-owUa_cShY   

                                      32 counts, 2 walls, Easy Intermediate, Song by David King

                                      An easier alternative to Maggies dance Irish Spirit (aka Baileys)

                                                  I love Maggies dance but unfortunately, there are lots of people out there

who just can’t manage such a challenging dance.  They’d like to, I know,

because they love the feel of the music, but their bodies won’t keep up

with their minds……. and this dance is for those people. (I’m one of them!)

Hope it does the trick for you!

No offence to Maggie at all as I hold her in the highest esteem .

She’s incredible to watch, -  a legend in her own time!
