How did you get involved in dancing?

Brandon Worrell:

My mother talked me into going to a class because of Garry's high energy and shenanigans; I chilled in the back the whole class in my own little corner. After beginners Donna Burns and Tammy Parker convinced me to stay for advanced and I've been hooked ever since.

 

 

Line Dance Connection:

What do you like most about line dancing?

Brandon Worrell:††††††††††

I loved to see all the different styles everyone dances with, its amazing how one dance can be interpreted so many different ways on one dance floor but it all comes together. I also love the diversity there are no restrictions, we all get it in, the dance floor doesn't discriminate.

 

 

Line Dance Connection:

If you could change one thing about dancing, what would it be?

Brandon Worrell:

I would stop all the line dance politics and closed mind people from turning their nose up at innovative moves and/or dances. It makes no sense for there to be any kind of hate or whatever you want to call it among fellow dancers, especially within the same state/city/county. We're all here to do the same thing; negativity only opens the door for drama and all the luggage that comes with it. Change is constant and line dancing is no exception especially when it comes to choreography, keep an open mind and a receptive attitude because creativity has no boundaries except the ones you set for yourself.

 

 

Line Dance Connection:

Tell me one thing about yourself that the dance community would find surprising.

Brandon Worrell:

Ummmmmmm......I got nothing, sorry guys. LOL

Is there a funny dance story you'd like to share in 3 sentences or less?  

Brandon Worrell:

The first time I met one of my line dance idols, Ziggie, at a TCH event about halfway through we both sat down and pulled out our identical inhalers and took two puffs, looked at each other and fell out laughing.
