April - May round up

A catch up of what RED HOT & COUNTRY has been up to for the last few months..........

Lets have a look at how RED HOT & COUNTRY spent April and May 2014


Classes continued at both Austral and Penrith, with Kelvin and Kathryn teaching lots of new dances each week.

The Penrith Class on Wednesday night

Kathryn celebrated turning the big 5-0 with a cake at class, and then a country/rock and roll themed party where there was plenty of music and of course plenty of dancing


Congrats Kathryn !

For Easter RED HOT & COUNTRY was invited to dance for the St Marys Town Centre again, we put together a number of dances, including dancing Kathryn's dance 'Girls love to shake it' to an Easter song. We won the 'viewers choice' award for our performance.

Easter fun at St Marys

We had our monthly social with Kelvin's new flame DJ box cover - looked very cool

In April RED HOT also updated their Youtube Channel with some of Kathryn and Kelvin's latest choreography .... there was only a small 'blooper reel' this time around

Kathryn and Kelvin went to Southern Cross Linedancers 21st birthday social and joined dancers from all over in celebrating with Mark and Kate on this milestone

Kelvin was featured as the profile of the month in Oz in line magazine and they did a nice review of Kathryn and Kelvin's dance Mountain Girl

Kathryn and Kelvin love to visit other instructors socials when we can ... and it was no exception during April and May. As well as the Southern Cross birthday, they had a visit up the Mountain to Penny Kelly and the Bilby line dancers and went to Nepean Rowers and the Outback Bootscooters Golden Oldies social

good fun and good friends

RED HOT & COUNTRY also visited Linda Burgess's BOLLYWOOOD birthday social - everyone looked great

What a fun night



Early May saw some of the RED HOT gang head off to Mayworth, last minute plans saw Kathryn join them and thanks to the kindness of a team mate, was able to dance once in a team routine. There is so much that goes on in Mayworth .... workshops, choreography, socials, the amazing competition, great music and being able to catch up with dance friends from all over Australia is just so much fun.
Congrats to Belinda and Robyn who both got medals in their solo routines, and to Kathryn for a 3rd place in Choreography for one of her beginner dances (Don't think twice)

some Mayworth snaps !!

Kathryn took the classes for a week while Kelvin was away, and she and Belinda turned up 'matching' in their line dance shirts

We held our regular Monthly social - with lots of 'old' and 'new' faces joining us for a night of fun

RED HOT & COUNTRY has a "home" at Austral Bowling Club where they have been for many years, we get great support from the club and they created this cool video sign for us to promote our classes

In May, Kathryn choreographed a new dance called "donkey" to the Jerrod Neiman song of the same name, the class at Nepean really got into it and added sound effects to it when they dance, it has become a class favourite !!

We always get to 'celebrate' the State of Origin on our Wednesday nights at Nepean, which is a source of great joy for sports fan Kathryn (said very tongue in cheek) but every year, she manages to win a prize during the games for picking the winner in one of the games the club runs, this year she picked the first try AND winning team !!! (just a pity she was wearing the wrong colour on the night as Kelvin constantly reminded her !!)

Stay tuned for next months update coming soon !!!!
