for same nite
Tonite's dance was another perfect nite for a Splash Party Dance @JFK Pool.This was another dance motivated group with the dancing starting early at 7:45pm with the 3rd teaching of the Cupid Shuffle.
The big surprise of the evening was the large number of students participating in the Cupid Shuffle which was played a 2nd time at 9:00pm. This was one of largest groups that I have seen participating in a line dance. I started teaching line dancing in 1993 in Reading,Pa @Sheraton in Wyomissing,followed by Rumors Nite Club and Pine View Acres in Pottsville,Pa and have never seen this many people taking to a new dance.I also introduced the Macarena & Cha Cha Slide to Schuylkill back in the 90s.
This dance is expected to be the new #1 dance in place of the Cha Cha Slide.
There was also lots of requests for Techno Dance tunes which has a very upbeat tempo of 120-140 beats per minute as oppossed to Hip Hop which has a tempo of 90-120 beats per minute.
Hope to see you all next Tuesday 7/24/07.
For your peace of mind your children are safe at JFK Pool Splash Party Dances.These dance feature 3-5 uniform policeman along with a large staff patroling the pool. These people are not in the office sitting around.
This dance is highly supervised by life guards,manager,assistant manager,JFK Staff,& 3-6 Policeman in uniform.There is no smoking allowed by anyone on the premises,there is an age limit which is 12th grade and the parking lot is watched after the dance is ended.Anyone congregating in the parking lot will be asked by the Police to leave.No one can leave the dance and return.Anyone passing items thru the fence may be asked to leave.Plus anyone with alcohol on their breath will be breath-a-lized and taken to City Hall.All parents are welcome to preview the dance while your child is here.In my opinion these students are well behaved and and as a parent/grandparent I can say,"these kids are the best"!!
Anytime there is lighting along with the showers,the dance will be immediately canceled due to the dangers of Lighting.Some of the students were waiting at 10:15pm and still had not been picked up by their parents.
PS: Students throwing thrash in the pool area. Do Not Do this!!!!!Use the Garbage Cans please. Plus you must wear a swim suit when entering the pool.
