HEART of the COUNTRY ball ~ round up

March 24th 2012 saw RED HOT and COUNTRY at the NSW state line dance ball, this years theme was Heart of the Country.

The organising committee, of which Kelvin is part of, did a great job with the decorations and organisation of this fun event with almost 800 dancers in attendance.
Kathryn and Kelvin were able to organise country singer Benn Gunn to come along and perform for the event.
Have a look at his awesome film clip of the night

The team from RED HOT and COUNTRY - Sam, Kelvin and Kathryn,  led the floor for a bracket of songs.

It was great to see everyone in their country gear helping to raise money for Ronald McDonald House, this year we raised $18,500.
What a wonderful effort from the line dance community.




Can't wait till next year ..... what will the theme be ???????????????

Red Hot & Country - Country Proud


Kathryn and Kelvin's new dance COUNTRY PROUD can now be seen
on RED HOT and COUNTRY's youtube page
A 32 count, intermediate dance to the new McAlister Kemp song - all of us at RED HOT are big fans of these guys. The track is off their album which will be released at "rocks the hunter" in March, the single can be purchased from itunes.
 The dance can be modified to make it even easier (alternate steps are on the dance sheet and shown in the video), there are quite a few tags and 2 easy restarts.
Check out Aussie Dance sheets, or Kick it for the sheet 
Hope you enjoy - do let us know if you learn it at your classes.

Kelvin hosted a fundraising social for Red Hot dancer Sally to assist in her trip to
'space camp' in the USA.
It was a fancy dress night - with dancers dressing up in their space themed outfits, we had Astronauts, A Galaxy Goddess, Mars, Aliens, lots of shimmery silver .... and Moons, Stars and Planets galore.

Thank you to everyone who came along and supported the night - As well as providing raffle prizes and free class passes, Kelvin donated part of the takings for the night, plus the money raised from the raffles to Sally, giving her a few hundred dollars towards her trip.
