Virtual Line Dancing

 

Tonight I will need to cut the lesson a little short, as I have some business I need to do.  So, we will focus on the new dance that is taking the world by storm!  I am referring to Jerusalema (video), done to the song of the same name.  If you go to the Copperknob site, you will see what I am talking about.  Or go to YouTube.com and search Jerusalema.  According to the notes in the step description, "This song became viral with a tribal challenge dance originating from Zezuru Shona people living in eastern Zimbabwe and bordering Angola, especially in the Murewa, Kizomba na Rua and Uzumba-Maramba-Pfungwe districts."  There are a few varieties, some very simple, and some the full 64-count version.  I will teach the full version, but don't be alarmed.  There are patterns and repetition that make the dance very easy to learn.  

 

 

I look forward to seeing you at 7:30 this Sunday!

Virtual Line Dancing

 

Last week we were introduced to  Jerusalema (video), done to the song of the same name.  This song and dance have captivated the world!  If you go to the Copperknob site, you will see what I am talking about.  Or go to YouTube.com and search Jerusalema.  According to the notes in the step description, "This song became viral with a tribal challenge dance originating from Zezuru Shona people living in eastern Zimbabwe and bordering Angola, especially in the Murewa, Kizomba na Rua and Uzumba-Maramba-Pfungwe districts."  There are a few varieties, some very simple, and some the full 64-count version.  I will teach the full version, but don't be alarmed.  There are patterns and repetition that makes the dance very easy to learn.  Last week, because I needed to leave early we did Jerusalema EZ, which is the first 32 counts.  Tonight we will review that and add the second half which has a wonderfully fun "running" section. 

 

I look forward to seeing you at 7:30 this Sunday!

We are going to do Jerusalema (video), again.  This is such a great song.  This song and dance have captivated the world, so I want to be sure we learn it well!  If you go to the Copperknob site, and look up the version choreographed by Colin Ghys, Alison Johnstone, and The Zezura Shona People.  You will see what I am talking about by the number of videos there are!  Or go to YouTube.com and search Jerusalema.  According to the notes in the step description, "This song became viral with a tribal challenge dance originating from Zezuru Shona people living in eastern Zimbabwe and bordering Angola, especially in the Murewa, Kizomba na Rua and Uzumba-Maramba-Pfungwe districts."  There are a few varieties, some very simple, and some the full 64-count version.  I will teach the full version, but don't be alarmed.  There are patterns and repetition that makes the dance very easy to learn.  Last week, because I needed to leave early we did Jerusalema EZ, which is the first 32 counts.  Tonight we will review that and add the second half which has a wonderfully fun "running" section. 

 

After that, in honor of St. Patrick, we will do Irish Stew (video).  A very fun dance and a very energetic song called Irish Stew by ShamRock.  

 

I look forward to seeing you at 7:30 this Sunday!

Greetings, my Terpsichorean Friends!

 

We will start this week doing Jerusalema (video), again.  This is such a great song, and because of its worldwide appeal, I want to be sure we know this dance well, should we find ourselves dancing in public again.  If you go to the Copperknob site, and look up the version choreographed by Colin Ghys, Alison Johnstone, and The Zezura Shona People, you will see what I am talking about by the number of videos there are!  Or go to YouTube.com and search Jerusalema.  According to the notes in the step description, "This song became viral with a tribal challenge dance originating from Zezuru Shona people living in eastern Zimbabwe and bordering Angola, especially in the Murewa, Kizomba na Rua and Uzumba-Maramba-Pfungwe districts."  There are a few varieties, some very simple, and some the full 64-count version.  

 

After that, in anticipation of spring, we will do Feeling Hot (video).  Although this is a 48-count dance, the is a lot of symmetry and repetition, making it fairly simple to learn.  There are no tags nor restarts, which definitely helps!

 

I look forward to seeing you at 7:30 this Sunday!
