3rd November 2010, Wed. 8pm - Intermediate Line Dance (RCS).
A couple of ladies were not present today but we welcomes back Katrina who's been missing for a while. The class decided they'd like to learn CUBAN YEAH today which was choreographed by Jennifer Choo. Its a brisk cha cha number based on the popular tune Yeah by Usher and given a delightful latin tweak. Its a 64 count dance based on some basic cha cha patterns. Some of the bars didn't seem to flow very well as they were obviously created for the general line dancer to cope with so I changed a couple of steps in the 3/8 & 5/8 to more authentic international cha cha steps which were 'approved' of by the class. I'm glad to see everyone has learnt enough about the latin genre to 'feel' when something is not quite right. Well done everyone!!!
