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

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!
