It's really good to know that other clubs and classes are doing my dances, and especially when it appears in a club's top 10 dances as printed in various magazines, reviewed on-line, or included in a teaching survey.
This page will mention YOUR name or club as and when I hear about it...

John Sharman 13mar19 - Decided not to chase the latest dances for my teach last night. I chose Diana Dawson's, Except Monday as it's a "no messing" improver dance to a great track by Lorrie Morgan. (try it as a floor split for Down On your Uppers)

Sue Linedancerweb review 18/08/2018 - My improver class love this little dance .love the music to..try it

Kathy Lucas - 15aug18 - Hi Diana, I said I would let you have feedback on teaching the above so here goes. I taught it to my Improver class this afternoon and they loved it! They paid you the biggest compliment ever by saying that in their opinion this was a REAL line dance. I know what they are saying as, being a class of mainly older folks, many of whom have been dancing for a long time they remember dancing as it was before all the extraordinary music, funky steps and tags and restarts became fashionable. I do hope it is a great success for you - it deserves to be! Thank you so much for sending it to me. Best wishes Kathy
