Big Boy Dance

Is the Big Boy going to stay big?

I’m on a mission to trim down and look better than I already do. LOL I am going to keep everyone posted on my progress. I started in early January ’06 and will give monthly updates.

1st year — Well, after my first year I lost a total of 40 lbs. It’s about half way to my goal. A new year and time to re-commit to my goal.

UPDATE: I have decided not to continue my Yahoo screen name since most of my contacts come through AOL-IM or e-mails. Thank you though to those I had contact with on Yahoo.

Look around and learn a new dance or two (or all of them !!!) Please feel free to contact me anytime. I am always here for my family, friends and fellow dancers.

Enjoy :)

UPDATE!!!!!! 2.0

I want thank everyone who supported me a few weeks ago in Washington DC during the IAGLCWDC event and all the positive feedback on my new dances. I would also like to thank them for choosing my dance “Cowgirls Don’t Cry” for one of their intermediate linedances for competition.

I do plan on re-doing my videos for my last few dances and my new dances in the next week or two. I will keep you posted when that happens.

I have a new e-mail address. Please remove my old e-mail of from your address books and contact info. Thank you.

I have just changed my website name to instead of BigBoyDanceGroove. If you used the “groove” to get to this site, you were re-directed to this page. I will keep the “groove” name for a year before releasing it, so please make the necessary changes on your lists for this website.


Mission Statement

My promise to all linedancers is to put fun and quality dances on the floor that not only appeal to the dancers, but fit the music as it dictates.

How I Started Hip Hop Line Dancing

Hip Hop Line Dancing

Originally from Rochester, New York (yes, I’m a cheese head), I started my dancing when I was 17 in regular hip hop clubs in New York City. I learned hip hop, funk, and street style dancing from the areas best dancers. At the age of 23, I was introduced to the hip hop scene. My old stomping grounds became a hip hop bar. I was quite intrigued by this. Before long, I was line dancing up a storm. Wherever I could go out to dance, I was there. I went all over the state and the NYC area. In October 1998, I moved to Camden in New Jersey where I now reside. I met a person who introduced me different dance events in 2000. I had never known of this until she took me to one and was floored. It renew all the passion I had in dancing. So Lisa, thank you very much. Since then, I have enjoyed choreographing dances and competing in line dance competitions. In my first competition for choreography, I placed 1st on one of my first dances I did, “Dig It”. Since then, many of my dances have placed in the top 3.

In the last couple years, I have started to teach at different hip hop clubs and events and finding it very fulfilling to spread the joy of what dance clubs NYC has to offer. My line dance competitions has come to a temporary halt so I can focus on couples dancing and to be eventually a judge. I am finding out that it is also helping with my line dancing also. Though I am doing this, line dancing will still be a primary focus and take precedent over couples dancing. Line dancing will always be my first love and if I can bring that same joy and enthusiasm to others, I know I will be satisfied.


Here is a listing of all my dances I have choreographed from the beginning.

* indicates Choreography Winner

There is both step sheets and video clips for all these dances. Videos are wmv.files (Windows Media) and are one wall demos of the dance and are as best as I can get it quality wise. If you should have a problem getting either step sheets or videos, please contact me so I can fix the problem.

Note to AOL users: It is possible that you may not get a connection for the videos due to the server from my web host. The best bet is to try and get it through Internet Explorer. Sorry for this inconvenience.
