DANCE POWER - 2nd Printing
Note from Skippy - June 4, 2012 - Just off the press. If you don't have a copy of Dance Power, you are missing out on a fantastic resource. Recently, a visiting dancer read my only remaining copy of Dance Power and wanted to purchase it. It was my LAST copy and I said - "No Sale." He offered me $50 - Still NO - Then he offered me $100. Still "NO", but as soon as he left, I read the book. THAT is why we just ordered the 2nd printing. I was fascinated with finding some Articles that are not available anywhere else. Particularly great for anyone seriously interested in the Universal Unit System(R), and/or West Coast Swing. It's only $40 and you will love it. GENERIC MUSIC IN 3 TEMPOS CD
Note from Skippy - June 4, 2012 - Do you have trouble Counting Music? Are you a Teacher who has students who have trouble counting music? I had removed my Generic Music disc because the sound was a bit Country. I have since talked to many people who felt that this disc was the answer to a Level 1 learning tool. You'll find: COUNTING 8's - Phrasing - Learning the difference between a Theme and a Bridge - Rolling Count - And even words to "Western Electric" and to "Dance in a Line" - Along with uncomplicated music in 3 different tempos - And, YES, I did write the music - and, YES, the vocalist is ME! HA! It's only $15 and it's "One of a Kind". HA!
