I loved the funky stuff, even though there weren't many dancers. They took it down a bit too often for my taste, though. At 12:15 they did the slowest song of the night. Even though I knew they'd leave us funked up, I took it as a lullabye and made my exit.
For the high energy stuff they were a lot of fun. They had a lot of steps the front line would do together and it got me dancing harder. I don't know if I will ever get used to people staying seated just because there are seats.
