The Stella Cabeca Story Then and Now part 30

I loved teaching line dancing to all music genres and I took a lot of criticism over the years when I introduced these dances and played this music at the C/W venues as some of them did not approve of other music being played. I would always fight to play and teach such dances as ‘Wipe Out ” by Beach Boys and Fat Boys, Chocolat’e ,Mambo no.5 and such. I was always pushing to break through with some of this music and whenever I did the floor would fill up.

Backstreet Boys were so popular and we wanted to dance to current pop music. I received threatening letters in the mail from KKK because I was told I was bringing diversity of music and people in to the CW bars. I was quoted by newspaper and magazine interviews and the more well known I became; the more threats. I did go to some police officer dance students of mine with the letters and they told me to ignore them; not to respond. Though they did escort me out to my car at night if I was alone.

I learned a dance by Max Perry, choreographer, to a country song with an alternative song suggestion. I could not get the music so I asked my brother, Charles in UK, to see if he could get it for me which he did. We were doing the dance to the country song and then when I got the music; I asked the DJ to play it. He refused. I took the cd to other venues where we danced and they refused to play it. Then back in my club, I told the D j it was country techno and he played it finally. I always remember the feeling as we did “Swamp Thing ” to “swamp Thing for the first time. The dance floor was on fire and the rest is history.

To this day, it is one of the most popular dances being done in all the CW venues. When I go to places and see all the kids filling the floor for this dance; I can’t help smiling to myself. I went through the same thing with Chill Factor the night I taught the dance in a club the DJ told me will never play that music here after you leave. Needless to say biggest floor filling dance ever in all our bars clubs dance venues. I feel a great sense of satisfaction that I was a tiny part of bringing some of this music and amazing dances to South Florida.

Keep Dancing, stay tune for more from Stella

The Stella Cabeca Story Then and Now part 29

Part 29

We toured from London north to my hometown, Blackpoool and up to Scotland. We went on a ferry from London cliffs of Dover to France. Filled up Caneith wine and came back on ferry; no sleep that night LOL. We just made it to an event exhausted. Sandy said it was best I ever taught. It was a great success down south before we went up North.

I lived in England for first 27 years of my life but never went to Scotland till I went in this tour as an American teacher. I loved Scotland and the people welcomed me with open arms. I did a guest appearance at an event, I was not booked for, it was a more famous instructor event. Hillbilly Rick, who kindly gave up his room at hotel and a slot to teach at the event.

It was fantastic but in those days; I was dressed head to toe Country Cowboy boots, Stetson, dress shirts, bolo tie, denim jeans. They had a heat wave and the venue had no Air Conditioning, i never sweated so much. we went outside dancing at one point to cool off. I taught a dance that had just come out in the states called “Got To Be Funky “. It was a hit over there long after we left,

Unfortunately, it was on this trip that George’s knee gave in and he was unable to walk. I had to leave him at my brother’s home in Blackpool when we went on with our tour in Scotland. We did go back for him though before returning to States. That was the end of George’s 2 stepping although he could walk; he opted not to have knee replacement due to his diabetes and circulation issues Myopathy that he gave up dancing.

Stay tuned for more from Stella….

After several years of teaching in local CW bars, clubs, community centers and Florida weekend events; I started to be invited to other events out of state. Also CW line dance was starting to take off in the U.K. They were inviting instructors and choreographers from USA to teach at events. They wanted authentic Country dances and with their own choreography.

I had choreographed some dances that had been published and with the help of my friends and business partners “Dancing Boots” we put together a U.K. Tour. We started with just a few bookings with the hope we would get more as we toured.

We had a wonderful experience and I had the pleasure of teaching 2 step in Burnley close to my home town in the North of England. My dances were very well received and after a live radio interview and newspaper splash; I was able to do several more gigs for a successful tour.

Later, I went back and did another 1 month tour independently and it was an amazing trip. My dances “All Night Long ” and “Country As A Boy Can Be ” were hits. George and I went with my friends, Sandy and Larry and Doug and Lynn. The 6 of us toured for a month. WOW!

More to come so stay tune….

George and I enjoyed the best years together in our marriage and our dance life. We took dance lessons together in 2 step, waltz, EC swing, and Cha Cha. George did not line dance but supported and helped me with step sheets music, organizing classes, Class schedules and calendars. He was there to check people in at the door when I started teaching in community centers, making sure I got home safe from CW clubs and bars and later from gigs I was booked for such as private functions, birthday parties, company events and private club functions.

We also started Couples dance lessons at our community Center in NMB and George taught with me often remembering the sequences and really good helping the men to lead the women through the routines. When I look back it’s amazing to think how incredible he was and had never danced in his life till he was 50 years old.

Once I had made a name for myself locally, I started to be asked to teach at events and workshops throughout the state of Florida and this was a big step towards taking my career to a higher level. The workshops were held usually at a hotel with several ballrooms set aside with several dance instructors from Florida and from other states coming in to teach dances. Back then was usually 1 to 3 dance rooms and only a few instructors with dance lessons in the day and then review of dances and open dance in one ballroom at night.

We had a lot of instructors, who came to learn and bring back new dances to teach their classes at home. I met and worked with many dancers and teachers and choreographers at these events. Through these events, I developed a new following of dancers and my workshops became well attended and I was invited to go to other events outside the state of Florida.

Unfortunately, it was not possible for me to travel to these events then, because George was working and was the main breadwinner and had part time job besides his full time job. We could not go away and I did not want to go without him so I stayed local most of the time. Even weekend events in Florida were difficult because his 2nd job for Miami Herald was 7 days a week. But we managed to find someone to do it for him so we could attend some of them and then we met someone who gave us the opportunity to do European tour. Would be like dream come true to teach in England.

till next time. keep dancin’  Stella
