Loved this one at The Flurry, thank you for a GREAT workshop! Can you remind me what song you used, if you remember? Might have been Play That Funky Music?

Quite likely it was; I know I used that for one of the dances that day. Have you seen the video done at the end of the session of some of the attendees repeating the Line Hustle without calls?

It's on YouTube here.

Another dance of interest. Like most 'line' dances from the 1960's and 1970's they followed/copy cat style, the dance routines performed by the singers/groups on stage...and all but a very few were only ONE WALL type.. ie they kept facing the audience at all times. If you listen to the song Doing the bus stop by the fatback back you will hear the calls... and nothing about doing a turn 1/4 or other wise. It was this version that appeared most popular even through to the late 1990's.
