Changed Your Style Of Dancing

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else found that their style of dancing has changed over the year's. I know mine has for sure, started out in late 70's spinning in full circle skirt's and sliding side to side in Mocassin shoe's smile.gif and of course stomping had fab time.

Changed again in 80's/90's and although now I sometime's dance in that style, unbeknown to myself - it's changed yet again in the past year or so. Still known to have the occasional stomp (only thing that remained unchanged throughout the years) :ohmy:

Yep definitely changed mine, used to be more side to side, punctuated with drops etc, but no longer do the 'drops' and have found over the years I've become more 'in a circular' style.

me and one of my mates whilst a bit pissed planned to go on a full on , no holes barred northern dancing night, we planned to wear baggy levis, shirts in the style of bowling shirts (could be a separate thread) and sensible dancing shoes, i lasted half of jimmy frazier, felt sick at the thought of eddie parker, and when the dj played ann perry i managed 30 seconds and could not speak for 30 minutes afterwards :yes: manifesto :yes:

I even danced in a dress at cleethorpes on the Saturday afternoon! That's a first!!

Yeh, do it sat on a chair now :yes: hand jive is about all i can manage.

Appreciate some clarification of something that cropped in Karen's reply. "Stomping"

Now we always called "stomping" the fast feet moving, bouncy dance done to records like 'Flaming Emeralds' e.t.c. Yet on reading some of the books attributed to N.Soul, others refer to it as "shuffling" Anyone ??

I blame Spanner, originator of the 'crop circling technique' loved by so many these days :shhh::lol:

Still shuffle occasionally but every 10 seconds have a puff on the inhaler to enable breathing :shhh:

Funny you should mention this, recently I decided to let my hair down. (so short, ain't got none to let down but you know what I mean) :lol: and have a little "Stomping" session. A friend commented later that they hadn't seen me "shuffle" before :thumbsup:

Shuffling=something to do with the seaside(seaside shuffle) maybe?,cleethorpes,blakcpool,etc;whereas Stomping=land lokced dancing venues,Wigan,Torch,Twisted wheel,Clifton hall.............just a theory :P not bothered,can do both anyhow ranting_1.gif .

6 of the best for rushing my posts laugh.gif I meant to say "cropped up" in Karen's post

But what is it ? Stomping or Shuffling ?

P.s.

Always had a thing about women with short hair laugh.gif Oooh Matron :ohmy:

Good theory - but "stomped" loads at "Wigan" and "Cleethorpes". :ohmy:

Come on Ken, don't keep us waiting - you've obviously got the answer - the difference between "Shuffle" and " Stomping". :ohmy:

HAVE GOT SLOWER ........
...Know where you're coming from - my only 'dancing' at do's these days seems primarily to involve the lifting of the right arm from beerglass to gob, and back again. Still, most people tell me that seems to be an improvement on my earlier style, which generally involved a lot of flailing aimlessly into anyone within a 50 yard radius...

Well as a very very,reguler at Cleggy you wouldnt catch me "stompin",likewise you wouldnt catch me "shuffling" at Clifton hall :ohmy: ,so the definative answer is they`re both the same :D anybody wanna` argue :ohmy:

PS,you cant stomp in "sandles;espodrills;plimsols;etc" seaside gear,and you cant shuffle in "brogues;cloggs;royles;and any shoe with seg`s plastered all over the bottom;etc",Wigan gear,just a theory?.

I always thought stomping and shuffling were two different styles - you would stomp to a 100 mile an hour records - fast feet, moving back and forth on the spot, changing direction with each stompoccassionally. A shuffle is more of your mecca style of dancing, smooth and floaty without stamping a la Carstairs type of music ------------------ or so it was in my day , have to admit stomping for one record would kill me these days

I've changed my style of shoes, which has in turn changed my style of dance. Not out of choice, sadly those trusty brogues that served me well at many a nighter have passed on.

Talking of shoe styles, anyone remember the fad for wearing ten pin bowling shoes for dancing ?

You could go to any Bowling Center & there would be row upon row of unclaimed mouldy holey pairs of Green Flash

Got a pair of Loakes I've had for about 9 years. They're starting to split, covered in talc stains, the soles have been replaced a few times, when they're gone.............will probably stop dancing.......they're sort of irreplacable whistling.gif

Now I couldnt mention this to normal people but.................I cried when me 15yr old dancing pair of light mouded to my feet/feels like I have no shoes on pair of brogues finally split and were not fixable :thumbsup: . After several new soles ............... they finally had to face the great dustbin in the sky. Had lots of versions since and none have ever felt the same - thus my dancing standards have changed since too :lol: or thats my excuse

Finally on the mend since my crash a few more months and I should hit that dancefloor soon - Karen be warned I'm reserving that space....................................
