Posted his letter and finished his Valentine (present? card?)

Well from the activity up there Valentines Day is almost upon us again. You never know what is around the corner and where you will be whisked away to.
To that end it would be remiss of me not to share with you all some essential dance steps should your amour take you dancing.... these steps won't fail but to impress!!!!



Do you feel shy when you go to a party or disco because you think you can't dance?
Well worry no more!
Your problems are solved with our step-by- step guide to disco dancing.

This first dance is the 'Jackie'.... quite simple to start you off
1. feet apart
2. Step right, touch left foot behind right (with a bounce)
3. feet apart
4. Step left, touch right foot behind left (with a bounce)

Repeat over and over again, turn around when you want, keep your elbows up like the dancer .... its that simple
Suggested song to dance to like this?? Soul, Stylistics (fab songs and if dancing like a chicken to such a classic as this doesn't impress him then nothing will lol)




If you are feeling more adventurous then the Twist is for you.... the pictures tell it all!
Suggested song ... Twist & Shout ~ the Beatles (Good Luck girls)


Over to America with this one ... the 'L.A. Stomp'. 'A good ice breaker at any party is this dance that everyone can do together in a long line'. Looks like the 'Wigan Slosh' to me (a quaint old Lancashire line dance move!!! Mostly done by women over 60 with polyester dresses and set hair!)
Suggested music 'Art for Art's sake' ~ 10 cc


And finally the 'Bump' ..... guilty as charged, 70s has been known to do this dance on many occasion as she has grown up... so good for aerobic intake (it's a killer done with 'bounce')

Suggested sounds 'Kenny' or the Bay City Rollers


I hope you are all prepared and practiced now and don't forget the 'bounce' with every step you take :-)
