Is Dancing Rock n Roll Heaven Or Hell?

Posted by: Gareth   on:  24/10/2013   Category: general

Winston Churchill wrote that after he died and arrived in Heaven he would like to spend a good deal of his first million years painting. I'm no artist, except with the BS perhaps, so after I die I think I would like to spend a good deal of my first million years dancing Rock 'n' Roll. But just what will Rock 'n' Roll be like in Heaven? Perfect, of course.

Is "You Lead" a fair call?

Posted by: Gareth   on:  24/10/2013   Category: general

You lead!

What we are concerned with here is the classic and very common cry of a man during dancing of "You led!" (How dare you?)

I am convinced that there's more to this than meets the eye!

Relax And Shine

Posted by: Gareth   on:  22/10/2013   Category: advice-tips

relax while dancing.The single most common mistake made by novice Rock n Roll dancers is being too tense when they dance. This results in stiffness and rigidity as opposed to flexibility. When we dance, we move our bodies in unusual ways. To do this effectively, especially in time to music, we must be flexible. That means we must ease up. Relax and shine.

Finesse, Not Force with Rock 'n' Roll Dance

Posted by: Gareth   on:  19/10/2013   Category: advice-tips

Wildly flinging your weight around in a neatly controlled fashion is a contradiction in terms. Doing it in in time to music is a forlorn hope for most people. Every expert in every form of physical pursuit from origami through to heavyweight wrestling will tell you that it is how you use your body that counts, not simply how much force you apply.

June and Rose love Rock n Roll danceDancing Rock n Roll is a great family activity. Children love music just as much as adults and they enjoy dancing if they're given the opportunity to learn. Dance can help them to appreciate the benefits of structured activity. Since it's also very much a visual art, it can help them to develop self esteem as well as learning constructive social skills within a defined community.

Roll Over, Roy Orbison

Posted by: Gareth   on:  17/10/2013   Category: general

Oh, Boy! Did Roy Orbison get it wrong? Buddy Holly would have rolled over in his grave while Beethoven, contrary to the lyrics of Chuck Berry’s classic song, rests peacefully in his, secure in the knowledge that his music has withstood the test of time. Rock ‘n’ Roll die? That’ll be the day!
