Same Thing Happened To Me: Diana Dawson: taught in Arizona USA

Linedancer Magazine Reviews - February 2014
David Honer - Another catchy dance to an established number by many of the bands. It looks like Diana is on to another success with this format. Easy to learn and fun to dance. It had me humming the tune for a long time. Should do really well.
E McIlver - Been doing this little gem for a couple of weeks. Went down well with my class. No tags or restarts - who could ask for more? I couldn't help singing along....Moonlight shining on the back of my hand....
Sue Bain - Needed a little dance without tags, restarts etc and this one just fitted the bill. A catchy song, easy to learn and fun to dance, it went down well with my class and can see this being popular with the live bands. After learning many dances with complicated steps anf timing issues this dance is just one to relax and enjoy!

B.W.D.A. Magazine - Member Review Feb 2014 - I use quite a lot of Diana's dances for my improver class and the occasional one for the intermediates - "A Beautiful Noise" is still going strong in both. One class member says he did a dance to this track a long time ago. I don't remember it so it may have been before he came to us. A good exercise in shuffles in all directions. A nice one to do without having to think too hard but it is definately improver level and I don't think I will be doing it with the intermediates. It fits the track well.

B.W.D.A. Magazine - Roving Reporter Review - omg another tag free dance. Is this the latest trend, do they actually listen to us?! I like this dance, the music is good and the dance fits nicely to it and the bands are starting to sing it.

Caroline Dancer Cooper 31 January 09:59 - Still teaching and recapping Same thing happened to me, great dances you're choreographing, thank you diana xxx

Kay Kemp 31 January 06:50 - Same Thing Happened to Me is my favourite dance at the moment, love it.

Margaret Ford - 13/01/2014 - Linedancer review -Nice to have a dance to a track that I've had in my collection for many years - and that many bands have continued to include in their sets. Easy dance that flows well and the class remembered it after only one teaching! Beware - many of the older 'country' bands (as opposed to 'line dance' artists start after only a short intro!

Gaye Teather 3/12/13 SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME - Diana Dawson. Lovely laid back track by John Prine. This song is such a classic that it's surprising that we haven't had a specific dance til now but Diana has done a fab job and our classes love this chilled out dance with no tags or restarts.

Gaye Teather -SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME - Diana Dawson. Very easy teach and a classic song with a chill out feel. Bands have been playing this song for a long time so it's great to now have one particular dance to it. Diana has done a wonderful job with the choreography and it fits and feels great. - LDUK 21Nov13

Gaye Teather - SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME - Diana Dawson. Week 1 and looks like being a stayer. Quick and easy teach as the dance just flows so well and was easy for our dancers to learn and remember. The music is a great classic country song often performed at clubs and festivals so it's good to have a dance specifically for this track. Another big hit for Diana we think! - LDUK 14Nov13

Karen Sturmey - SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME DIANE DAWSON - WEEK 1 taught this to my country music classes, again it went down well. a track a lot of the live bands play. LDUK 14Nov13

James Miller - 08/11/2013 - Linedancer review - "a brilliant dance which should suit most dancers and music available freely, I think the music track is catchy and heard on the grapevine that some bands are playing the music.

Jackie 3/11/13 - congratulations on getting the recognition you deserve for your dance 'Same thing happened to me'. It's a lovely little dance with easy steps and the lyrics make me smile. Hope the teachers round here take it on board.

Good luck with this new dance which I am sure will be another big success for you.
