***************************************************
NORCROSS:

This is a free dance I have at Nemoe's in Norcross on Wednesday nights 6:30-10:00+ about every 3 or 4 weeks.  Everyone is invited and there is no cover. The next one will be January 24th.
We play a great mix of just about everything!   We may play maybe two WCS songs, but they will generally be something you can also ECS or freestyle to, like "Cake By The Ocean".

This event is a REAL mix of music. I play a bit of everything and no one type of dance music overshadows everything else. 50% of the music is from requests (If it is reasonable and it is something the crowd would like). About 75% is "Couples Dance" dance music, but of course much of it can be done freestyle.

I play music for:
East Coast Swing
Free Style
Slow Dances
Country 2 Step
Night Club 2 Step
Oldies
Line Dances
Waltz
West Coast Swing
Shag
Salsa
Merengue
Bachata
Rumba
Fox Trot
Tango
