Open Dance Recap Friday 6/15/18

On Friday, June 15th the Dance Hall featured local choreographer Ed Evangelista as the dance instructor for the night. He taught his own dance, “Barefootin” which is making its tour around New England as the chill dance for this summer.

The partner dance was choreographed by Aric & Sheryl Lemieux and called “Runaway Trains“. The concept for this dance is to give the traditional “follower” a chance to lead. The first 32 counts are pretty easy, but good because the song is faster. The last 8 start the switch sequence, then gives you 4 beats to react and get ready to play the opposite role.

“Cowboy” Ron Moon is scheduled as a featured DI for Friday, July 6th.
