Great way to Start the New Year!

What a great way to kick off the 2013 dance season!
It may have been cold outside last Friday but the Chicopee AMVETS was on fire with the joint hopping till closing!

We started off the night at 6:30 with a full floor of dancers for the lessons. It was great to see the new folks and make a bunch of new friends as well as seeing a few of the Circa 1997 Lighthouse Line Dance crowd. For the Partners  we reviewed Sassy Shanay and taught a favorite of ours from a few years back, Hick Lake Lick to the Song Hickory lake by Bekka & Billy. Great song, fun dance.

Later in the evening Radio Ranch did a great rendition of Party Crowd that had half the place on their feet singing  and doing all the animation that go with that song., (BTW That chair dance has been around since at least 1996)  Check out the video at a Club Vance venue.

The Ranch did as they always do and made sure a good time was had by all, 1st band of the month, Every Month. We'll see them back in February.

This Friday, Brian and the Troubadours will be back playing that 4/4 foot stompin' two steppin', house rockin', diesel truckin', beer drinkin' music in true Honkytonk style. They'll get the place moving and we'll be reviewing Hick Lake Lick and teaching a brand new Circle Partner dance (Same footwork) to a song the you will love and be singing on the way home!
