This week with Richard Powers - September 29

Tonight is the last Supermoon of the year, and we have a super lineup tonight!

Lots of new music:
   The cross-step waltz from Miyazaki's final film, The Boy and the Heron (2023), not yet released here.
   Several new epic and fantasy waltzes.
   New Lindy from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, just released this past week, and a new OMD cross-step waltz.
   The cross-step waltz from Wes Anderson's Asteroid City (2023).
   Carmina Burana. Yes, it's a waltz!
   And many more. 36 of tonight's 46 tunes are FNW premieres for Richard.

Richard Powers teaches all-levels classes in pivots, partnered by Rocky Aikens.
Side benefits of perfecting pivots will be learning both waltz and polka, if you don't already know them.
This class will prepare you for Richard's Bohemian National Polka class in three weeks.
This is an ALL-LEVELS CLASS, no previous experience required.

7:15 - Odd but easy Zwiefachers, and waltz canter pivots.
8:00 - The pivoting version of the schottische, and polka pivots.
9:00 - Dance Party with new music, selected and edited for danceability.
          Cool weather for dancing tonight. Forecast to be 58° by 9pm.
