Nita Metcalfe email June 13, 2013 ;Hi Diana, I taught beautiful noise last week and this week and we did it at a social we had on Tuesday. I would not be surprised if it reaches no 1 as it was requested over and over again. There were quite a few teachers at the social so i bet they go home and look it up as well.

Diana Lowery - 20/05/2013 - Sorry Speno ... I LOVE this track ! My favourite song by Neil Diamond. Have taught this dance to my Mixed Ability class as well as my Intermediates, and it's gone down very well indeed with everyone. Mixed Ability class struggled slightly with Section 6 (after the Figure of 8 weave) but I'm sure they'll get there in the end. Lots of singing along and that's a good sign they like the dance - from one Diana to another .. Well done !

Pauline 17 may 13 - I taught A Beautiful noise last night- It was lovely to be able to learn a dance so easily and then teach it. I love the music and your choroegraphy just flows so well. it ws a good teach. Thanks so much. x


Pauline Bell - 16/05/2013 - Review in Linedancer Magazine website - I love this dance. The track is fabulous -it builds slowly and has a great chorus. The dance flows so well and I learnt it really quickly, but it is challenging enough for itermediates. There are 3 easy restarts-all in the same place. Give it a go and your dancers will love it and soon be singing along!


Pauline Vell I taught A Beautiful noise last night- It was lovely to be able to learn a dance so easily and then teach it. I love the music and your choroegraphy just flows so well. it ws a good teach. Thanks so much. x

Jeanette Robson 30 april13 - I have been teaching these dances at Jarrow = four classes a week = all levels A BEAUTIFUL NOISE by Diana Dawson

David Spencer - 01/05/2013 - LD Review - Personally I'm not a tremendous fan of this particular track but the steps flow well and the restarts are simple to spot. After a couple of weeks its one you can get up and just dance without too much thought.

Lois Lightfoot - 30/04/2013 - LD Review - A well put together dance from Diana that fits a treat to this classic Neil Diamond song each section flows well into the next, and it although it has 3 restarts they are always after the chorus so work well with the flow of the dance. Well worth taking a look it’s got a really feel good factor.

Ken Adams, Bishopdale Linedancers New Zealand - My class has just learnt “Beautiful Noise” and wanted to let you know what a great dance it is.We danced it 3 times the first night it was just so popular. We have made it our number 1 dance We are just a small group of 22 dancers here in Christchurch , New Zealand
