Greetings Dance Club! Lots of rain in the schedule for this week, so how about a hot and sweaty workout indoors? That sounds like a good thing to me at least. Hope to see you and your beautiful smiles in a class this week! A couple quick notes: Wednesday night class cancelled in Nanaimo for Halloween, and I will keep the newsletter on Monday after all after this week (instead of switching to Tuesdays), and note in each newsletter when new choreo will start during the week… for anyone keeping track 🙂

New songs (new warm-up starts Thursday)
It’s time for a new warm-up, Dance Club! I just finished mixing this warm-up that is almost exactly 10 minutes long, and combines four different songs. Expect the typical warm-up style where we practice common moves from class, a fitness section, and then full out cardio by the end. I am so, so excited to get this one going. Give them a listen – it helps pick up the moves a bit faster! Our new warm-up includes the following:
Sunlight by The Magician ft. Years & Years
Just Got Paid by Sigala, Ella Eyre, Meghan Trainor ft. French Montana
Grapevine by Tiesto – just came out on Friday, and it’ll get us sweating this week!
What a Bam Bam by Amara La Negra. Coombs class will dance just this song from the warm-up on Monday.
Coombs class on Monday will have Michael Jackson’s Thriller (the “Immortal” remix) to celebrate Halloween.
I’m bringing back an old choreo for our pre-stretch song. Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!) by Blu Cantrell.
And we will continue stretching to Without Me by Halsey, introduced last week.
Here are the playlists for this week’s classes in Coombs, Qualicum Beach and Errington. You can click the image for a larger version.
Get ALL the songs at the Song Catalog page here. Do you have a song from that list that you really want to dance to? Let me know by replying to this message! I can add the song to this week’s or next week’s playlist. You can also find my Spotify playlists on that page, subscribe to them if you’re on Spotify.
New! Choreo videos on YouTube
Going out of our comfort zone is a good thing, right? Haha. This is way out of that comfort zone for me, but there we go. I’m starting to video the choreo I’ve created for class, and decided to put it up on YouTube. If you want to practice some of the songs we do in class, or just workout at home, I’ll be building up the resource over time on my channel. Find the videos on the Videos page on my website, on YouTube, or subscribe using this button here:
