|"Line Dance Heaven exists..."|
|I read 2 different line dance
magazines published in Australia to learn the names of
the popular dances being done in OZ and to keep up with
what the choreographers are saying in the featured
articles and the opinions the dancers are expressing in
the letters to the editors.
Get In Line is the Queensland (Terry Hogan's home state) Line Dancing Magazine - Jeanette Cram, Editor
Country Goss is Australia's National Country Dance and Music News Publication - Gary Talbot, Managing Editor. This publication also prints World Dance News...(on the same page in the 98' Winter Edition...there was a story about dancin' in Paris, France right next to an article about dancin' in Lincoln, Illinois at one of my favorite little midwestern dance halls....Thunderfoot Junction!)
I also read Linedancermagazine, a line dance magazine published in the UK for the same reason...to keep informed of the popular dances being done on their dance floors and to read what other instructors and dancers are saying about their line dance community. This publication also prints World Dance News.
From reading my own email that comes to my site, from reading the opinions expressed in these overseas publications and from just being an active member of the San Francisco Bay Area Country Western Dance Community...I feel entitled to my opinion.
many of our instructors, including Michael, Neil, Evelyn,
Hedy and Charlotte - attend workshops and festivals here
in the States and Overseas to teach their own dances and
to bring back to their classes the latest dances. They
not only publish their dance schedules every month...but
they allow each other to put their schedules out on the
"information" table at lessons and socials!!
