A FEW BIOS OF OUR DANCERS AND INSTRUCTORS
PREMIER ENTERTAINMENT DANCE TEAM WAS FEATURED ON SKY TV IN LIVE LAUGH LINEDANCE Live Laugh Linedance is a half hour TV show airing on Sky 212 from 3rd December 2014. It aims to show line dance as a social outlet that is fun and suitable for all age groups, dispelling the myth that it's all hay bales and check shirts. Country music still plays a role but the music today is from every conceivable genre. Through the show we aim to offer a more accurate insight to what modern line dance and modern country music is really all about - both topics that are frequently and, in our opinion, deliberately mis represented by the the mainstream media.
Premier Entertainment Dance Team specializes in country line dancing.
We are currently comprised of 3 DJ's and 43 dancers ages ranging from 19 to 30.
My wife Lika Kohn, affectionately known as “Momma”, and myself put this wonderful team together. Under our leadership this super energetic and fun group with a keen sense of harmony and rhythm has been teaching as well as dancing in various clubs and also at Premier Entertainment’s private functions in CT and NY States. Almost everyone in this group has a music or dance major as well as acting background ranging from a NYC Rockette to dance and music teachers in schools and performances in theatre and musicals. The future of Country Line Dancing is in good hands! Each one of them came upon line dancing in a different way, none of them expecting to find not only an entertaining, fun, activity, but also a family. They all hold also regular jobs.
Various venues from all over the Northeast have contacted us. We have danced at Goshen Stampede and Goshen Fair. We will soon be dancing at Newtown Arts Festival with Whiskey and Rye. Weekly, three times a week we dance at Coyote Maverick in Danbury, Ct, Johnny Utah’s in South Norwalk, CT, Bull & Barrel, Brewster, and Bar Q in Stamford, CT, Angry Bull Hartford as well as every Wednesday and Saturday at Mustang Sally's Saloon, Ansonia, CT. Monthly we dance at McGrath’s in Pawling, NY as well as South Side Inn Mahopac, NY . We have danced in Massachusetts and for various fundraisers such as Breast Cancer and rescued Thoroughbreds. Just recently, we started filming a monthly television show for Public Access Citizens TV in Hamden, CT and New Haven area and which will also be aired in Danbury area. The show is called THE COWBOY BEAT and it is aired weekly. Every month we shoot a different segment with various line dances.
We love Country Music and Country line dancing and we would love the spread this wonderful activity among your viewers.
