Dance Sequence 036 - Medium Boogie & Rockabilly

Dance sequences are useful in your Huddles EZ Animator as a way to dance to a complete song using different dances.


This is a dance to C'est La Vie in the style of the Uma Thurman and John Travolta dance in Pulp Fiction. It works real well for boogies and rockabilly for men and women. It was choreographed by Cheryl Nitely.

(LostDog) Boogie -LostDog
(LostDog) Swinging 60's -LostDog
S4D_Sanba_55A - Studio 4DS4D_Rock_52B - Studio 4D

I Love Dancing

Hi All xxxx

This is Nottoo Wise with the first post to the SL DANCE QUEEN blog.

When I started in SL, I did not know what to expect. I had never played any type of online "game" before. It didn't take long to get me hooked. One of the biggest hooks was dancing. I fell in love with it.

Over my 2 1/2 years in SL I have spent many hours dancing and thinking about dancing. It has given me great pleasure. The idea for the DANCE QUEEN group was to find a way to link with others who felt as I do about dancing. Creating dances with motion capture technology is beyond my capabilities, so I am not a dance maker. But, finding ways to extend the pleasure of dancing seems to have no limits. This blog is for those who love dancing. Anyone can contribute.

Cheryl Nitely is helping me set up the blog and the technical things that will make it useful for you. We want to do a lot of things here. Some of the ideas are to take the information that I send out to DANCE QUEEN members in Daily Notices and place it in an easily accessible location. This includes information about your Huddles HUD, how to choreograph, freebie dances, dance sequences, dance ratings, dance groups, dance equipment and more.

So turn up the music and let's boogie.

(As of 02/04/2010 - We will be starting Dance Ratings up again in the future. If you have any questions or comments about the process, contact, or Gaililla Sinatra.)

SL has over 1000 dances. With so many choices it is hard to know what to add to your collection and what to reject. Dance Ratings offer a way to identify those dances that experienced and dedicated dancers think are the best. The ratings in this list are based on the suitability of the dance for GENERAL USE rather than a special use like tango or country.

We use a scale of 1 to 10 because most people use this type of scale. 1 is low and 10 is high. Three things are considered in rating a dance:
1. technical quality (3 points)
2. utility (3 points)
3. how well the raters like it (4 points)

Ratings are determined by DANCE QUEEN group members in rating sessions. Here are the results so far. We meet about once per month in dance rating sessions.
