All I know is its like foxtrot but is all quicks and no slows? or thats what I have gathered by the few descriptions of it...never actually seen it done myself. am looking forward to seeing it (if they can find music for it to be danced too).
Hey, wooh..what about the lady that dances it, or her teacher. Maybe as a last resort try getting with him and seeing if he can suggest anything? That would be better than getting there with music that doesnt fit...
We have done this dance a our past 2 comps. At the studio we only have one Peabody ("Mr. Sandman"). This is a little slow. You can practice it to a Quickstep but it's much faster than the fastest Quickstep.
The other problem I have seen Peabody is that most of what you see done in Comps is not really Peabody. We had you get a Former US Smooth Champion from the 1980's to teach me and Sunshine how to do it properly.
Watched the video that bjp posted (wooh, I couldnt see anything but a white box on your post) and peabody is very interesting! Not exactly what I envisioned, but still pretty cool. Cant wait to see this danced at the comp (end of the month)!
So the answer to the music question is to look for Charleston-like songs. One that comes to mind is "Bonny and Clyde" off the Casa Musica Ballroom Classics 4 CD. Speed it up by 20% or a little less and you'll be there.
The instructions say to dance peapbody only in a well ventilated room ;-)
