Introduction

Ideal occupation would be teaching Zydeco on Bourban Street. Otherwise, would like to spend 8 hours a day in the dance studio and on the floor.

Are you interested in learning how to do partner dances or line dancing?

If it involves moving my feet and not sitting in a chair, I'm all for it.

What style of dancing would you like to learn?

I find social dancing most challenging and love the way it brings people together. But line dancing is great too! I have a hard time deciding if I like West Coast Swing or Texas-2-Step better.

What kind of music do you like?

The only think I don't like is self-indulgent musicians who get into riffs that never end and lose musicality. I used to play guitars. I don't think musicians should be doing practice riffs when they are performing for an audience.

What are your 3 favorite songs you would like hear at a dance?

This is a hard question. I love all music and want to be able to celebrate it by putting it together with dance. My favorite changes with mood. Waltz (Already Gone by Sugarland), Texas 2 Step (White Liar - Miranda Lambert), East Coast (Ding Dang Darn by Ken Domash is a hoot). Here is a "shout out" to Fine Young Cannibals (Good Thing), Matt Natheson (Come on, Get Higher), Sugarland, Bonnie Raitt, Keb Mo, and the list goes on. I haven't even started with Louisiana music (Beau Jocque, Wayne Toups, Cedric Watson, Rosie Ledet, Clifton Chenier, Curley Taylor, Steve Riley). And, in remembrance, I LOVE YOU STEVIE RAY VAUGHN!!!

    Jean, I got your message. :) Thank you for the carpooling notice, but I live in Monroe so would be backtracking to go to Athens. Alison and I are planning to ride together though. And I have your number. Can't wait to see you tonight on the dance floor!!!

    No relation. At least as far as I know.
    I will be at the office Thursday to see how it goes. Is the OFFICE the place the club intends to meet regularly? Or just your favorite hang out place?
