Is this the biggest dance floor ever?

Hello Country Dancers!

First of all thank you to all the new subscribers!

I'm excited for this great warmer weather we're getting and for what the summer will bring! Especially all the dancing ahead.

I hope everyone is getting out now to dance every chance you get. I've been exploring a new place myself... Montana's Country Night Club in San Dimas, CA. I have really been enjoying the Partner Dance Lessons there every Friday Night from Lyndee & Marlene. So good!

For this month's email I have a couple new things to share!

May's Topics:
Country Dancing at the Stagecoach Festival & The Honky Tonk Dancehall
24 Classic Line Dances – The Timeless Ones We Still Love!

First of all about my "biggest dance floor" question above...

At the end of April I was at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival and besides the great country music, there was a lot of country dancing going on as well. Check out my brief recap of my weekend in Coachella at Stagecoach. And the photos, because I think the Honky Tonk Dance Hall might house the largest dance floor in recorded history!

Also, I have created yet another Line Dance Roundup! My latest list is all about The Classic Line Dances. Check it out! I'm curious if you agree!

Besides that I do have a couple other things going on with the blog!

Write ups on two great country dancing venues in Hanover, MD & none other than Nashville, TN!

The Original Cancun Cantina & The Nashville Palace. Check 'em out!

And look back at the home page from time to time. Many more write ups on great country dancing venues all over the country, coming soon!

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!
