Message from Guyton Mundy :
Have you ever had that one friend, that friend that helped you be the person that
you knew you could be, that friend that said, share this with others, that friend that
would let you be yourself and share a part of you with the world, that friend that
you have loved for so long but knew one day that you would have to say goodbye
to? Well I have!!! Dance has been my friend, my confidant, my expression, my
words, my drive and my love for over 28 years. It has given me more joy and more
experiences than anyone could ever imagine. I have danced for 20 people and
50,000 people, and I will never forget the feeling that I get when I share my friend
“dance” with them….But there comes a time when you have to say goodbye.
Even though it hurts and you know that you will miss your friend, you have to have
the strength to say “Thank you for what you have given me”. But now it is time to
say goodbye my friend…..
I want to thank everyone who has ever taken a class from me or been touched by
a piece that I have choreographed. I know that I will miss everyone but I know it is
time to take a break. I will be finishing out my contracts that I have though 2016
and just a few that I have already been booked for in 2017, but that will be it for me.
I want to say thank you for letting me share this part of my life with you all. Thank you
to all my hard core dancers that let me push you to your limits…I have always tried to
raise the bar and sometimes I have even had to one up myself. I thank you for
allowing me to push and challenge not only you the dancers but myself as a choreographer.
I hope that you will never stop pushing your limits and continue to do so, any way you can.
I have so many people to thank for letting me share my dance life with, that I know if I thank
everyone it will be a very long letter… Well that’s the way it’s going to be..
Pedro Machado…. I blame you for this.. LOL.. You brought me to my first event in the UK in
Stoke Upon Trent in 2000, and if it were not for you brining me there I would not be the person
I am today… So thank you Pedro… You will always have a friend to bail you out of jail, unless
I’m sitting beside you.
Scott Blevins, my true friend. Thank you for letting me see that I wasn’t too crazy for pushing
the limits of people. You started pushing the limits of line dance before I was even around.
You are a true friend and I thank you for letting me know that it’s ok to push the limits. And I
will see you and party with you when you hit the BIG 50….
Will Craig… What can I say… or what everyone else says…. We are the Bro-mance…
LOL…We have created some really cool dances together and I hope people will be dancing
them way after I’m gone. You are another one of my best friends. We have had good times
and bad, but we will always have each others backs… Love ya bro.
Rachael McEnaney-White…... You have been like a little sister to me. I have seen you grow in
so many ways and finally get married. You are an incredible dancer and choreographer and a
wonderful person. We fight like brothers and sisters do, but I know I can always count on you
when I need you. We have had so many fun times and memories. We have shared our homes
with each other and have had to share our pain also. We have had to fight so many battles
with loved ones, friends and family. We have shared so much together and know each other
so well. I will always keep you in my heart as my little sister… So if you need a place to stay…
you know where we are, and the boat is yours… don’t worry there’s Wi-Fi on the boat. Love you…
Louie St George…..Man We fight like brothers. But I know you always have my back. I know I
will see you when you pass through and stay at the compound like always. Some things will
never change… See you soon.
Sue Weston and Big Dave…You are 2 of my favorite people. We have done so many events
together and had so much fun. Each event has had its unique and memorable times. I can
remember staying up to the late hours with Little Rob, Carey, Jordan, JP, Maria, and Fred
trying to finish up a new dances to bring to the people the next day. I know you were always a
little worried if I would finish it up, but I don’t think we ever let you down… Thank you for
trusting me and allowing me to be creative and just be myself. I have done events with you for
over 12 years and I will miss them and the people who share our good times. Thank you so
much for everything. I love you with all of me.
Jean Garr. You gave me my first shot at a workshop with you and brought me to The
Marathon the very next year. You have always pushed me and my name. Thank you for
always being there for me. I will always be your discovery…
Carol Baker. You have picked me up for over 15 years, driven me all over the UK, shared your
home with me more times than I can count. I have loved helping you with your patio and
putting up wall paper. It is always been so much fun staying with you. You have always been
there for me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you.
I could sit here all day and thank everyone that has given me inspiration and encouragement
throughout the years but then this letter would go on and on forever. But I know it can’t. But I
have to say just a few more things. Roy Hadisubroto. Man, your skills are unparalleled. I could
sit and watch you dance all night long man. Keep entertaining the world and they will keep
loving you for it. Fred Whitehouse… You are another that I truly look up to as a dancer. You
feel the music more than most people can understand. You leave your heart and soul on the
dance floor and the feelings you express can’t be explained with words.
Thank you to all of the event Directors that have given me the opportunity to teach at their
events and share my love of dance with everyone. I know there are so many people out there
that I want to thank but if I go on and on you might get bored with this letter. But since I am
only going to say it once. Here it is. Thank you Jean, Eve, Mark, Glen, Jen, Jason, Sue, Dave,
Diane, Sandy, Marcus, Goran, Annette, Bill, Patrick, Melissa, Show-Ming, Grant, Will, Scott,
Tudi, Robin, Doug, Jackie, Judy, Sandra, Barbra, Madeline, Laura, Kurt, Conney, Lissi,
Monica, Tony, Jeff, and any others that I may have forgotten…
I guess that’s it… All I have to say now is Goodbye… I know I will see a lot of you before I
finish out my contracts. But to those of you that I will not, thank you from the bottom of my
heart. Keep dancing!!!!
