What's Your Favorite Dance?

#61
I've done line dancing only once since youth orchestra camp. Last year I went to a ballroom social in Hawaii and was surprised that the social seemed to be ending 1.5 hours early. Then someone told me that the second half of the social was reserved for line dancing. :shock:

Hey, I just noticed something. Yesterday I was "new in town" and today I'm a "commoner".........Joe Blow is "Upper Class", so I'm wondering.... what will I be tomorrow and when will I be dubbed as "upper class" ??? Is that a competition thing? Just curious.......I want to be Upper Class !!!! Teehee.
explain the titles under the avators

Upper Class is 700 posts, so you've got 688 to go. Keep movin'! ;)

My favorites are the Electric Slide, the Tush Push, and the Watermelon Crawl........there are so many, and different ones across the board. They are all fun and easy to learn (except one here in La that I can NOT get !) It's done to "Pink Cadillac" and is very complicated and long. If it's more work than "fun", I just watch.
Maybe after you've been doing the same dances for years (and years), and have run out of variations to try to make them interesting, you'll start looking for more complicated stuff.
They were doing "Chill Factor" at Stoney's in Vegas when I was there in June. Not real easy, but I loved the challenge. And when I go down there again next year....

Ever see "Cherokee Boogie"/"Hey Ho Alena"?
I've been known to drop an "Apache Death Drop" at the end of the vine, and am working on a Native American sort of skipping thing inspired by Michael Jackson who was inspired by Natvie American dancers...

So, anyhow, you are by no means the only one who loves line dancing!

Nightclub two-step. Why? Because it has elements of both rhythm and smooth, it's very romantic, and it's just a super cool dance.
So very well put! And you see this in many of the patterns, such as Waltz-like Flip-Flops, Rumba-like moves, and Cortes. A very versatile dance that you can dance to a lot of your favorite pop songs to. I found that it was the perfect dance for a song that I love, "Somewhere in the Night" by Barry Manilow from the 70's...

If I'm just cutting loose at social dancing, I "love, love, love" to dance East Coast with a good friend. He's always showing me new steps and we just have a totally fun time doing this. But of all the dances, the foxtrot is my favorite. I love the music, the clothes, and the dance itself. It was my first showcase dance so it also holds a very dear place in my heart. :)

ah ray, I began dancing because of the waltz...but until I leatr to dance it better, it has lost it's place at the top...but I suspect that, in my soul, it never will be unseated

Yes, fascination. I know how that goes! I started off as an East Coast Swing / Lindy dancer. But once I branched out, I really fell hard for the Waltz. And took a liking for the other American Smooth and Rhythm dances as well. I also became fond of the Samba...

Am I the only one that LOVES line dancing??

Do you'll do the Drifter and the Cowboy Cha Cha and the Horseshoe partner dances where you live or is it just a Northern California thing??
I too, love line dancing.

It's not big in South Australia, but I could probably attend 2 or 3 classes within a 20Km radius of where I live in rural SA.

Love partner line dances -as a bloke theres plenty partners available, but I understand why it's not popular with the women.

Welcome to DF, allenr!

I dunno, I never "got" line dancing, but that's because I suppose I don't do well in formations where you HAVE to know EXACTLY what the next step/move/pattern is--it's not like in lead-and-follow partner dancing that if you miss one move, you can adapt and "save" the day... :)
