Roaring Camp Railroad - Wedding Venue Walkthrough


Roaring Camp Railroad in Felton, CA is a hidden gem in the Santa Cruz/Los Gatos mountains. They have a reception venue called Bret Harte Hall that can seat 250 people for dinner and it is quite charming. You can also get a Steam Train wedding package that includes a ceremony at the top of a hill. The bridal party and guests ride the train up to the ceremony site and come back down after the wedding for reception at the hall. How fun!

What Direction Do I Face For Line Dances?

What direction do i face?
What direction do i face?

People just starting off with line dancing have tons of questions. This is the first in a serious of dance floor etiquette posts. So what direction do I face for line dances? Well, the answer to that is not so easy. But, thankfully there are usually only three options and almost all dances face off facing the audience or side of the bar where most of those not dancing are sitting or standing. After the start there are those three options for how many walls the dance restarts facing.

  1. Four Wall Dance - This is the most common type and the dance usually restarts 1/4 turn and you end up facing each wall at least once, hence the 4 wall dance name.
  2. Two Wall Dance - This is the next common and you start facing the audience and then after finishing the sequence of steps, you end up facing away from the audience. Each start begins 180 degrees from the previous.
  3. One Wall Dance - There are very few line dances that only face one wall after each set of steps is finished.

Really, all the matters in line dancing is that you're having fun while respecting those around you. So, if you forget a turn, no worries! Just get facing the same way as everyone else and begin with the next step that you recognize. Happy dancing!

  1. What direction do I face for line dances?
  2. What if more than one dance is happening at the same time?
  3. What direction do we face for couples dances?
  4. Drinks on the dance floor.
  5. What line dance do we do to a particular song?

The Tim McGraw Shotgun Rider concerts tonight (September 18th) at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA and tomorrow (September 19th) at Irvine Meadows Amphitheater in Irvine, CA have been cancelled due to illness. Tim McGraw has been placed on vocal rest by his doctors.

"This is so disappointing to me. We've had such a great summer and I was looking forward to this final weekend with the fans in California. I appreciate the support and look forward to coming back soon. The word 'can't' is just not in my DNA, if there was any way I could sing, I would do it," said McGraw.

All tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.


Also, 95.3 KRTY will be hosting Chase Bryant at the Broken Spoke tonight 9/18.

Doors: open at 8p. $15 cover

Dance Floor Etiquette

Line Dancing Etiquette
Line Dancing Etiquette

When you go line dancing, you see all these people on the dance floor and everyone seems to know what dance to do, what direction to face and where to stand on the dance floor. How does that happen? Other than taking dance lessons for specific dances, there is actually a loose set of rules that helps prevent chaos, and to be honest sometimes fights, on the dance floor. In the next few weeks, I will go into some of the dance etiquette that makes country line dancing easy and fun to do wherever you go! We will talk about:

  1. What direction do I face for line dances?
  2. What if more than one dance is happening at the same time?
  3. What direction do we face for couples dances?
  4. Drinks on the dance floor.
  5. What line dance do we do to a particular song?

These are just a few parts of Country Dance Etiquette and I hope you stay with me to learn about each one.
