We got to the dance a little late yesterday, so I don’t have all of the dances on video, however I did bring two camcorders to see if having more than one shot would turn out or not. With two different angles I was able to cut around some mistakes, add some camera movement and show off the particular highlights of each dance.
Let me know your thoughts about these new videos or and if you found the cutting back and forth between shots distracting

This was my family’s first time doing this dance and it ended up being a pretty fast moving dance that kept you on your toes (or if you want to be technical the balls of your feet.) There is only just enough time to do the moves and no more, so you have to think ahead about your next move. Speaking of ahead….you’ve got to love how on-beat we all are when we clap! I’ll have to count out the beats next time to make sure that I clap at the right time.
This is now officially one of-if not my most-favorite dance IF you are a #1 couple. The moves are fairly unique to this dance (I mean of the dances in my limited repertoire) and it’s very fast moving with no time for a break. Very, very unfortunately I was not a #1 couple so I almost fell asleep this dance, but it was fun to watch others do it.
Jeremy did mess up one time when he skipped the do-se-do, so a few of the groups are one step ahead of the others.
