|"Bad Things" Routine:The Most Requested (and controversial)WCS Routine Evah!|
I'm holding off my new 4-Part series until I'm back from a nice long and well deserved two week cruise. I learn so much from so many people when we go, that the sites and monuments we see feel like mere icing on the best cake ever.
But cruises are not lounging and luxurious like they all say they are. Nope - they are jam-packed mega-tours of some of the best this earth has to offer... and somehow they fit in twenty of those things in five days. So, as you cruise lovers now, we are resting for our cruise. Yes, I said resting. For a cruise. Try one, my curious friends, and you shall understand.
That's not to say I'm not releasing any new videos. I AM!
|Josh & Katherine - Grand Nationals |
Bad Things/Last Dance
THE MOST REQUESTED VIDEO!
Today I'm releasing the most requested video in the history of my writing: my fourth routine with my partner, Josh Clark!
We only performed it twice, once at Grand Nationals and once at the CA Swing Dance Hall of Fame Gala, where it was received with such honor and praise that we stayed up until well into the next morning celebrating and enjoying one another. It was such a wonderful way to wrap up a phenomenal partnership.
Today I only have the Grand Nationals performance, even though the Hall of Fame Gala was 700% better, for many reasons. But we are all our own worst critics. And in the end, Charlie & Jackie gave us a standing ovation... what in the world else could we have ever asked for???
So I hope you enjoy....
OH WAIT! That's right!
There is HUGE controversy around this routine!!!
That's right - it was in the famous Weekly Note #30: Independence Day, when I told you about my conversation with Gary Jobst regarding the swing content in my routine. That's right - this is the routine where Josh and I did straight up swing and Gary said we were doing Hustle.
Well, my friends. Now you can see for yourselves. Push Breaks and Over-rotating whips, as well as patterns straight out of WCS routines back in the 80's... were labeled as Hustle. All because, well, we were dancing to a Hustle song.
So have fun you guys. Enjoy the end of summer, and enjoy this last routine in which we tried to give you guys some good home-cooked West Coast Swing... right from our hearts, to yours.
