Here are the list of the featured partner pattern dances and some thoughts for them:
Dirty Boots (Dance Albro, Intermediate Level)
Music: Jon Pardi – Dirt On My Boots
Thoughts: Any good form of Canadian Stomp style rhythms seem to work. We used it to Rascal Flatt’s “Prayin’ For Daylight” with success as well as attempted to use a slower polka/shuffle step rhythm like Colbie Caillat’s “Never Gonna Let You Down” with a big smile at the end. The soft, light-hearted tune gave the dance a bouncier feeling from the hard hits of Pardi’s track.
After The Dawn (BobbyJo Sargent, Beginner Level)
Music: Charlie Puth & Meghan Trainor – Marvin Gaye
Thoughts: Cool little dance for this level, well paced as well. Wanna have a hoot with this one? Pair it with Rudedog’s “I Got A Woman” (ft Ray Charles). Plenty of room to horse around!
