Red Hot Round Up - August /Sept 2014

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 August and September 2014

AUGUST

Kathryn, Kelvin and Erin were doing lots of training for their first visit to Leeton for the annual Eisteddfod

Perfecting our hat tricks

Kathryn and Kelvin visited with Southern Cross to join Dee Musk for her workshop and we had a fun night at the black and bling social that followed

RED HOT always create videos of their dances to share on their youtube channel, and sometimes the ‘blooper’ reels are just as much fun as the dance – and the filming of Kathryn’s dance Wild Card was no exception !

Always lots of laughs !

As mentioned in the last update, due to illness Ian Lyle was not able to continue with the regular free socials at Nepean Rowing Club, but the club asked Kelvin to take over and we now have RED HOT FRIDAY NIGHTS every Friday night – a free all request social. Numbers have been growing each week and everyone is enjoying Kelvin’s mix of two old and two new requests !!

Friday night fun - Helen drove over an hour to  join us

We had our regular social at Austral and had a floor full of people all night

Kelvin shows off his best side

Then RED HOT & COUNTRY were Leeton bound as we headed to compete in the eisteddfod. Erin did her first solo’s and received gold in both of them. Kathryn also received a gold for her solo. Between the three of them they cleaned up with a swag of medals and trophies. Special mention to our friend Taylor Fardell from Dubbo who took out the encouragement award for dancing her first ever solo. We had a great weekend and were made to feel very welcome by the gang there and hope to go back next year.

Some happy snaps from the weekend

The end of the month saw Kelvin head to Maitland for the LDAA workshop and social, Kathryn was supposed to make the trip to present a workshop, but due to illness Kelvin had to fill in for her.

SEPTEMBER

Kathryn was still unwell and missed a few classes at the beginning of the month, but took the time to wear in her new boots while catching up on Nashville !

You recover faster wearing cowboy boots !

The RED HOT gang were invited to take part in the St Marys Spring Festival again this year, and this time did two demonstrations, one in the rain !!  Then they took part in the parade, dancing behind the van.

A little bit of rain wouldn't stop our junior girls

It was followed that night by the regular RED HOT social, which left Kathryn and Kelvin feeling rather exhausted !!

It was a loooonnnng day

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

Kelvin and Kathryn were invited to host the boots and diamonds social at Ryde X club - and what a fun time they had - including a late night supper with Michael and Michelle Fong and gang !!

Fun at Ryde X

Late night super has become a bit of a tradition

During September we also did a lot of training for the NSW comp

(Kelvin has some questionable taste in clothing for training day !!)
