Our second track was a bit of a departure for us music wise (as you may have anticipated if you read our blog post the other week). We performed to a contemporary track, 'Dog Days Are Over' by Florence and the Machine, and what fun we had (apologies to all the non-dancing audience who were startled by Cayte's loud and over-excited 'Yip!' as the first fast bit kicked in!). If you don't know it, there are a lot of tempo changes in this song - it goes from slow to steady to fast to slow to fast to chonky (sorry - words fail me but you know what I mean!) to fast to slow ---- phew!!! But yes folks, apart from the slow opening sequence it WAS all improv. Basically we knew the track inside out and upside down musically (Sarah did threaten to sing along at one point!) and it just seemed to work so well with our tribal moves - and more importantly, feeling. We're certainly not moving away from dancing to more traditional tracks, but this was a great change of pace for us and certainly kept us on our toes (particularly at the point where Cayte's dance sandal got stuck in her pantaloons during a Turkish Shimmy Combo. Ooops!) And of course it contrasted beautifully with our early more traditional slow dance. Lots of fun!
