The Japan Club line dancers. Some were absent due to illness

We had our annual X'mas get-together cum line dance class today as we've always done for the past 5 years at Japan Club. Members brought food and drinks and decked themselves out in 'christmassy' attire. :)

Dressed to theme :)

Makan time!

Over the 2-hour party/class, we danced popular easy dances such as Come Dance With Me to songs like Winter Wonderland....etc.

I brought my 3 boys along to join in the party as well as to give them a glimpse into what Mummy does.

The party ended with members exchanging gifts and wishing each other Merry Christmas & Happy New Year.

See you all next year!

Workshop With Niels (JB) - 12-12-10

Finally am able to steal some time to quickly recount the past weekend's event.....Dance for Good Health, Peace & Joy 2010, an annual event organised by the Lim sisters in Johor Baru. The event is entirely free to line dancers and fully sponsored by Dr JP Lim and her sisters, also affectionately known as Bunga Raya on FB :)

This year, we were all treated to the presence of a tall cool I'm not referring to the Carlsberg beer...hahaha, but the dashing & affable choreographer from Denmark, Niels Poulsen :)

Last year I'd driven down to JB with my husband. This year, I decided to join the gang and went by coach.....all 39 of us. People with similar objectives and passion make for great travel companions. It was FUN & laughter all the way there and back! :)

Crazy bunch! Great fun! :)

Line dancers from around the region turned up......Singapore, Australia & Indonesia.

Wanda & Linda from Perth

So did notable choreographers such as Philip Sobrielo, John Ng and Amy Christian-Sohn.

and Amy Christian-Sohn

Everyone burned the dance floor from 10am to 6pm, with intermittent breaks for performances.

After wrapping up the event, we adjourned for dinner with Niels and the Lim sisters and finally bade goodbye to all our dear line dance friends at about 8pm. We reached KL a few minutes past midnight, tired.....but happy....and already looking forward to next year's event. :)
Thank You to the LIM SISTERS & NIELS for a great event & wonderful memories!

I am absolutely smitten with this dance Rilassamento by Anita Wittenberg.

The video below shows the dance but not using the music as stated in the stepsheet. The song used is IF WE HOLD ON TOGETHER, but I'm not sure if it's the one sung by Diana Ross as it doesn't sound like her. But no matter, it's still one of my all time favourite songs. And the gorgeous ball gowns plus beautiful dancing makes it even dreamier!
