Elton John & Britney Spears' New Song in a Line Dance and Saying Goodbye to Summer!

Goodbye Summer!

Awe! Once again we are saying goodbye to summer. I'm always sad to see summer wind up. But at least for some of us it is still plenty warm!

To wrap up summer I've got a couple new things on the blog...

September's Topics:

YESSS!! National Dance Convention & Competition
Copperknob Top 10 & Top 99 Line Dances

In the last email I sent out, I mentioned I went to the YESSS!! National Dance Convention & Competition in Scottsdale AZ!

I hadn't yet put anything together about that, but now I have! Check out the details and my experience of YESSS!!

The YESSS!! Dance Convention – For All Dancers, Beginner to Advanced. A Better Dancer In One Weekend!

This was a very big and full convention with so much to offer. I didn't want to just leave it with just the small footnote in my last email.

So check out the post and put both YESSS!! (coming up in July, 2023) And also The Edge (coming up in March, 2023) on you calendar!
Information here:

The Edge (March 10-12, 2023)
YESSS!! (July, 2023)

For my 2nd article this month for you, I have another LINE DANCE LIST! But this one is a little different. I am always fascinated with the Copperknob Top 10. I like to see what is trending and hot. So, in keeping with this I took a deep dive into what was showing there at the end of summer in the top 99. I say "was" because even in the time it took me to put the article together, things had shifted!

Current Top 10 & Top 99 Line Dances on Copperknob, Summer 2022!

One hot one on the list was a new dance from Gary O'Reilly & Maggie Gallagher to the new Elton John & Britney Spears song. Another great song meets great choreography!

Check out my article and let me know what you think of the Copperknob Top 10, actually top 99.

And if you have some favorite line dances and choreographers you think should be in that top 99 or top 10, I would love to hear about it!


WRITERS NEEDED! Also, for my country dancing blog, I am also on the lookout to hire writers to help me put out some good, helpful content for the dance community!

So, looking for writers and even suggestions for the blog in general!

Thanks for reading!

Hi, I’m Brian and I love country dancing! I am a single dad to 4 amazing adult kids and live in Fullerton, California. In 2016 I went through a divorce, and like many going through something like that, I was pretty devastated. In my journey toward recovering and moving on, a recurring theme I heard was that there’s hope! People talked about finding silver linings in things like this. Maybe you’ll do things and discover things you never would have before! Well, in 2017 some friends of mine invited me to go to a country bar where there was dancing. But this wasn’t just any country bar, this was the Ranch in Anaheim California! A very nice premier place for live music and country dancing. I joined them and had a really good time. And over time, even without my friends, I kept going just to sit, have a beer, and hang out. (better than being all alone at home). I wasn’t dancing immediately at all–that terrified me! But what I found was that just sitting and watching people dance was nice, even therapeutic. Something about just watching people dance was very cool. But you can’t be at a place like that too long before you try it out yourself. So began my journey into country dance. At first, it was line dancing, but then after a few lessons, I actually tried the two-step as well. There were some rather terrifying moments to that of course! But now, here 6 years later I have enjoyed many many nights of dancing. In that time I learned the basic Two Step, learned several partner dances, and now know close to 50 line dances and tried out hundreds. It has really become a very fun outlet and activity. A place for meeting new friends and enjoying some great nights of live music and dancing. Looking back, I would never have guessed I'd be so caught up with, of all things, dancing! But here I am, and I'm happy to have found it and all the things and people that surround it. And now to write about the discoveries and hopefully put out some interesting and helpful information about it is a bonus!
