A NEW DANCE FROM LISA!
Ocala instructor and choreographer Sandi Larkins and I have written a new dance to the popular track All About The Bass by Meghan Trainor. I've been teaching Gail Dawson's beginner version at Eisenhower and Pimlico, but wanted a more challenging dance for more experienced students. The level is intermediate or low intermediate, depending on whether or not the dancer includes styling (you know what I always say: "Styling is optional!") Our dance is phrased ABC, which means it has three different parts. Click HERE to see the video (and look for some familiar faces).
Note that about half the dancers did the plain version, and the rest added some or all of the styling.
We think the dance with styling is intermediate level, and the plain version is easy intermediate only because there's more to remember than some dancers are used to. The music is upbeat and has what we consider to be a very positive overall message, which is that "every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top." The two words that might offend some people have been deleted from the version we used.
I taught the multi-level group in the video the whole dance in about 45 minutes. The steps are very familiar and include lots of repetition and mirroring. After only a few times dancing it, the phrasing is easy to hear.
If you work with groups that perform at retirement homes or other events and activities, this would be a great team demo dance. It's short but has lots of interest for an audience.
