18th Birthday Celebrations

RED HOT & COUNTRY 18th Birthday

OK - so we know  RED HOT & COUNTRY celebrated their 18th Birthday last year ..... but we were lying about our age !!!

A little mix up saw us celebrating a year earlier than we should have !!  But it didn't mean we didn't celebrate just as much this year !!!

About 100 people joined us at Austral Bowling Club to celebrate 18 years of linedancing. Kelvin kept the floor full of happy dancers all night with his mix of old and new dance tracks. We danced to some classic RED HOT & COUNTRY choreography with dances like "the ride" and new like "Mountain Girl" and "Catfish Dinner"

the floor was a sea of the  RED HOT & COUNTRY colours of red, yellow, orange and black - everyone looked great. There was some great decorations and the tables looked fantastic. Linda Burgess came along and did a special guest teach of her fun little dance 'Party Animals'

Wildfire did a demonstration that had the crowd cheering (you can see a video on our facebook page)

it was a great night and we thank everyone for coming along and being part of the FUN


June and July Round up

A catch up of what RED HOT & COUNTRY has been up to for the last few months..........

Lets have a look at how RED HOT & COUNTRY spent June and July 2014


Classes continued at both Austral and Penrith, with Kelvin and Kathryn teaching lots of new dances each week.

The long weekend saw a group of RED HOT dancers join Michelle and Michael Fong at their social at Campsie. It was a fun day with lots of dancing and lots of lovely food. Kathryn taught them 'donkey' which everyone enjoyed.

Our monthly social was another great night, we have people traveling from all over to join us, as word has got around about what a great time we have. Kelvin has the floor full all night with a great variety of music, old and new and everyone (except Kathryn !!!) gets lots of their requests all night long. Kathryn did a teach of one of her new dances

fun at our regular monthly social

Kathryn and Kelvin and some of the gang attended the Nepean Rowers Social, lots of laughs and good times

having fun on the dance floor

While not totally dance related ..... Kathryn and Kelvin were lucky enough to see Keith Urban in concert with their support act Sheppard. Both of these artists have current tracks we were dancing to by Linda Burgess (Somewhere in my car and Geronimo).

Kathryn caught up with McAlister Kemp in the foyer

With the World Cup underway, RED HOT & COUNTRY were invited to perform on the comedy show 'The Full Brazilian'. The idea was a dance off between two of the countries playing that night in a dance reflecting those counties - RED HOT danced as America against Portugal. Kathryn and Kelvin got to dress up in American colours and dance with special guest Ian 'Dicko' Dickenson - they danced 'mountain girl' and then Dicko joined in. Unfortunately Portugal was declared the winner.
It was such a fun night - check out the video on our facebook page

Fun at the SBS studio

We were invited back a second time, unfortunately Kathryn was on her way to Dubbo so wasn't available for the second episode, so Kristen joined Kelvin to dance with the wiggles !!!

lots of fun !!

Kathryn headed up to Dubbo ready for the weekend social, she joined class at the Dubbo RSLYC line dancers and taught them a couple of new dances and walked through a couple of RED HOT dances that they had been doing.

The annual workshop and social in Dubbo is always a fantastic event for RED HOT & COUNTRY and we love being part of it. The theme this year was PINK and Kathryn and Kelvin taught a number of PINK themed dances at the workshop. They taught a dance by Linda Pink (big dog daddy), a dance to a song by Pink (Just Give by Linda Burgess) and a song that was Pink - The Boss's Pink Cadillac which Kathryn and Kelvin choreographed especially for the event. They also workshopped some of their other dances - Donkey, My Kinda Girl, Drink Drink Drink and Happy Hour.

As always, the ladies outdid themselves with gorgeous decorations and set up of the hall for the annual social, 100 dancers from all over NSW came along for a night full of fun and dance (not to forget the amazing supper that is always put on !!)

RED HOT & COUNTRY had some guests join in at the class at the Nepean Rowers, a group of rowers from New Zealand were visiting the club, so Kelvin invited them in to be a part of the class. Kelvin taught them Kathryn's dance 'girls love to shake it' and they had such a fun time and they all joined in and loved it

the NZ rowing team 'shaking it'

Kathryn's dance 'donkey' to the Jerrod Neiman song of the same name quickly became a class favourite - it is a novelty dance that includes some great sound effects by the class !! Kelvin brought Kathryn some gifts to celebrate its success !!

Kathryn has her very own donkey outfit - and a new donkey mascot

you can see donkey HERE on youtube

We were lucky enough to have Josh Talbot join us at class to teach us his dance choreographed with Julie Talbot "Better to Love", it is such a beautiful dance and we really enjoyed having Josh with us to walk us through it

July also saw Kelvin, Kathryn and Erin doing lots of training for Leeton comp which is coming up in August, this will be the first time RED HOT & COUNTRY has visited this comp, and we they are looking forward to attending. Two of Kathryn and Kelvin's dances have been chosen for solo dances this year.

fun at training

RED HOT & COUNTRY has been teaching for the OUTBACK BOOTSCOOTERS at Penrith for many years, so we were very sad to hear that illness had caused our friends Ian and Jacky to retire. It was all quite sudden so we were able to get a few people together to come up to the last socials Ian was running at the rowing club. Kelvin is talking to the club and we hope to be able to continue some free socials running there each month (will keep you informed.)

RED HOT & COUNTRY wish Ian and Jacky all the best and thank them for their support

Kelvin and Ian

RED HOT & COUNTRY also celebrated their 18th birthday in July - check out the next update for details and photos of this fun night

Kathryn and Kelvin love to visit other instructors socials when we can ... and it was no exception during April and May. As well as the Southern Cross birthday, they had a visit up the Mountain to Penny Kelly and the Bilby line dancers and went to Nepean Rowers and the Outback Bootscooters Golden Oldies social

good fun and good friends

RED HOT & COUNTRY also visited Linda Burgess's BOLLYWOOOD birthday social - everyone looked great

What a fun night



Early May saw some of the RED HOT gang head off to Mayworth, last minute plans saw Kathryn join them and thanks to the kindness of a team mate, was able to dance once in a team routine. There is so much that goes on in Mayworth .... workshops, choreography, socials, the amazing competition, great music and being able to catch up with dance friends from all over Australia is just so much fun.
Congrats to Belinda and Robyn who both got medals in their solo routines, and to Kathryn for a 3rd place in Choreography for one of her beginner dances (Don't think twice)

some Mayworth snaps !!

Kathryn took the classes for a week while Kelvin was away, and she and Belinda turned up 'matching' in their line dance shirts

fab t-shirts from Rachael McEnany

We held our regular Monthly social - with lots of 'old' and 'new' faces joining us for a night of fun

Kelvin and Kathryn at the social

RED HOT & COUNTRY has a "home" at Austral Bowling Club where they have been for many years, we get great support from the club and they created this cool video sign for us to promote our classes

Club promotion

In May, Kathryn choreographed a new dance called "donkey" to the Jerrod Neiman song of the same name, the class at Nepean really got into it and added sound effects to it when they dance, it has become a class favourite !!

Kathryn leading "donkey"

We always get to 'celebrate' the State of Origin on our Wednesday nights at Nepean, which is a source of great joy for sports fan Kathryn (said very tongue in cheek) but every year, she manages to win a prize during the games for picking the winner in one of the games the club runs, this year she picked the first try AND winning team !!! (just a pity she was wearing the wrong colour on the night as Kelvin constantly reminded her !!)

dancing on State of Origin night and Kathryn's blues prize

Stay tuned for next months update coming soon !!!!

NSW Line Dance Ball

RED HOT & COUNTRY at the NSW linedance ball

RED HOT & COUNTRY had a fabulous time at the NSW ball held at the State Sports Centre in March!!!!

Around 800 people attended the ball and raised much needed funds for Ronald McDonald house. Every one got into the theme for 'hearts of of the world' and wore some great costumes from all around the world. Kelvin and Kathryn went "Aussie" for the evening.
