° News Of Note:
There are now thousands of step descriptions and
instructional videos for hundreds of line dances in the Archives!
Gloria has her own website now at
www.gloriajohnson.us . Check
it out when you get a chance. You will find step sheets for all of her
dances, and a video clip for many of them. We will be adding more video
clips as we film them.
That's right... Gloria and Dusty are now available for workshops
& seminars, and they want to come to YOUR club or dance hall! No longer are
they tied down to a nightclub four or five nights a week! They're ready to do
It was this
interaction between the two of them that earned them the title "DJ/Dance Instructor
Team Of The Year" at the Country Dance Music Seminar & Awards in Nashville in
April of 1996! Now they're bringing it to your club!
||What do you get for your money?
(After all, it's not
"free"!) You get Gloria Johnson, one of America's top line-dance
choreographers doing the dance instruction and her husband Dusty Miller doing the DJ work
for an intense four to six hour workshop. They bring their own wireless microphones and
plug into your house sound system. They even bring the music they need to teach with
all on a laptop computer.
YOU can be
the first in your area to book this dynamic duo of country dance! Gloria teaches the
dances... Dusty does the DJ bit... and they quip back and forth constantly! Everyone in
the audience is fair-game for their fun! EVEN YOU! You never know what they're going to
say or do next! It's not JUST a work-shop, they make it FUN!
|What's the cost, you
say? Not all that bad... Let's compare
traveling instructors and choreographers to recording artists. Like a recording artist
some instructors are just trying to "break in" and will work for peanuts
or even "free" just to get
the exposure, while others are well established and command top dollar. The more
"hits" an artist has had, the more money they charge to do a concert.
they get an award, their price edges up. The same holds true for a traveling choreographer
or instructor. We've seen instructors work literally for free, and we know of several that
reportedly get anywhere from $600 to $1,000, plus transportation, plus accommodations.
Gloria and Dusty are somewhere in the middle. It depends on what day of the week you want
to do the workshop, and how far away it is. There is also a discount if you can help them
find a second club to do a second workshop in on the same trip. On the average, it will
cost $250 to $300 for the 4 to 6 hour workshop, plus a motel room, and mileage from Daytona
Beach at 27.5¢ per mile. Gloria and Dusty would rather drive. It gives them a chance to
do a little sightseeing and it's cheaper than trying to fly two people, even in business
If you should need a
sound system too...
And, if you are not in a nightclub, they can even supply the sound system!
Dusty uses a large 100 watt boom box on board
cruise ships which works great in smaller venues. Of
course, if Dusty brings his "portable" DJ system, there's an added
|A "Sunshine Sunday" SPECIAL!
If you are within 300 miles of Daytona Beach, we've got a
"Sunshine Sunday" special for you. A "flat rate" of $300 for a
hour workshop plus a motel room. No mileage charge. This rate is good for a workshop on
Saturday or Sunday within 300 miles of Daytona Beach (roughly Miami to the south,
Tampa/St. Petersburg and Tallahassee to the west, and from Hilton Head, SC
across southern Georgia to Columbus to the north).
