I know we've discussed wireless mics before, but I'm not sure how to search through the archives.
I love my shure pg wireless headset system, but am wondering what other makes models folks prefer. Thanks.
I'm curious what others do in the case of 16 bar dances.
If one has a dance like the Canadian Barn Dance, the similar La
Chapelloise/Cdn Gay Gordons, or Nottingham Swing, and so on, that repeat
after 16 bars of music do you:
Ask the musicians to play a tune AB
Generally allow or expect a two part/32 bar AABB tune and (try to) keep
track of when one is in the B zone, ask for once more and expect two
more repetitions of the dance? (or plan _further_ ahead, four dance
repetitions out, for twice more the music.)
Do you feel there a best practise? Does it depend on whether you
regularly work with a band/group of musos? How confident they are, if
_they_ can track that. Should it all be on the caller? Or do you simply
avoid this situation?
I have some 3 to 5 dances of this nature I regularly have handy and have
been taking it all on myself.
I have several bands I regularly work with where I might choose these
dances and it was suggested by one group recently they might provide
AB/16 bars. This would actually be a tracking relief for me and I think
provide a more (logical?) musical framework for the dancing of it.

Can somebody explain the "left diagonal slice" move? It looks like a slide
left but it needs to take 8 beats to work.

This is what I have
JOY TO THE WORLD
Published in Dream Dances
Circle left 3/4, N swing
Ladies chain, 1/2 hey (ladies start right)
P balance & swing
Promenade over, left diagonal slice
I'm looking for a dance that I danced last night Unfortunately all i
remember is the name of the dance, "Joy to the World" and the Author, Don
Flaherty. It may include a half hey to a partner balance and swing.
I liked the dance and with that much information, i can usually find a
dance online. But not this time. Can anyone share that dance with me? i'd
like to call it this week, if I can find it.
Thank you for any help you can provide!
