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….

Reasons Why You Should Consider Joining An Adult Dance Class – By Sharon Louise Johnston

1. Dance Improves Flexibility

Don’t worry about already being flexible when thinking about should you or shouldn’t you join a dance class. The movement that you take on during the lesson will gently increase your own flexibility through suitable stretching exercises set by the teacher. “Warm ups” and “Cool downs” both involve gentle stretching exercises and combinations which improve your range of movement, so taking part in a dance class within time will enable you to improve your flexibility.

2. Dancing Builds Strength

Strength is built in dance by forcing the muscles to resist against your own body weight. Hip hop, jazz, contemporary and ballet all involve jumping high into the air. To be able to do these movements, it requires a lot of strength in the leg muscles.

3. Dance Increases Endurance

Physical exercise like dance increases our endurance levels. When our muscles are required to work hard for long periods of time our endurance levels improve and we are able to work longer and harder without feeling tired or fatigue. Dancing is great for improving endurance, especially the allegro steps (jumps) in ballet, the continuous combinations danced in tap and the fast paced routines danced in hip hop and street styles. When we increase our heart rate we increase our stamina level. Regular dancing will build your endurance levels.

4. A Sense of Well-Being

By joining a dance class you can challenge and build on your social skills increasing your self-confidence. Dance is also a way to reduce stress and tension levels. When we do an activity like dancing we feel an improved sense of well-being, not only does your overall fitness improve but you also get your metabolism working better for you too. With most things at the touch of a button today it is very easy to become lazy and the less exercise we do, the less involved we feel we want to be in other areas of our lives. Through dance and music you’ll feel generally more uplifted in both body and mind which in turn gives us more energy.

Whether you’re pirouetting across the floor to a classical masterpiece written by Tchaikovsky or doing “body rolls” in all directions possible to Rihanna, you’re getting exercise and probably having a lot of fun at the same time. Dancing offers us so many benefits as discussed in this article, but not forgetting the additional cardiovascular conditioning, stronger bones and good posture benefits also. Least important possibly, but still a pro to consider is that you don’t need to “feel the fear” of dancing at parties anymore. In fact you might find the performer in you yet!

The Stella Cabeca Story Then and Now Part 26

part 26

Many of my friends talked about wanting to plan a trip together so through friends we rented a bus from the church. Side of bus said (Christians In Action) and we filled the bus with 40 dancers/friends. We drove from Miami Beach to Nashville visiting Grand Old Opry. We saw the last performance of Grandpa Jones and were invited to line dance in the isles of the theatre never done before. We were on live TV performing my choreography at Wild Horse Saloon, dance was called East Coastin. I met many nationally known C/W artist and another live TV show. River boat cruises and tour Opry land hotel was amazing trip we never forgot was my first and only road trip.

Filled every day with dance and tours and performances. Now I decided we should go on a cruise and try to arrange line dance group, and figure out how to arrange for our dancers to have lessons in ship. Just so happened one of my friends who danced was also a travel agent and so we put together a Dance Cruise. The ship was huge(LOL) Dolphin cruise line “The Seabreeze ” there was one small open deck at back of ship that the entire guests and crew came out on to at night to dance.

The Stella Cabeca Story Then and Now Part 25

I met many young dance teachers and choreographers at these events. I remember one young man in particular. At an event, I was just visiting;I had heard about him but never seen him in person. He walked in the room; people were digging and poking me whispering “that’s Guyton ” all excited and a little crazy.

He was quiet seemed a little sad-faced, sitting looking down at the floor; I was thinking what are they making such a fuss about? Well, I took his workshop and learned some amazing dances and thought wow this guy is going to be big someday.

Another time, I went to an event called Boot Camp right in my neighborhood. It was awesome, I saw local dance team Rockin Renegades perform. It was one of the best performances I had ever seen. The leader and choreographer of this team was a young lady named Jennifer Toolen. Jennifer later danced with me for many years in fact, she used to dance at my classes in Tamarac. She eventually married and became pregnant with her son. I watched that baby growing as she danced through her pregnancy.

She went in to become a well-known instructor, choreographer, winning dance competitions as a solo competitor and with her team. She is the director of several of the biggest line dance events in the USA. Including The Tampa Bay Line dance.
