                                 Dance up to count 32 (stamps) then step fwd on R and pivot to front.    

          

 

This easy little dance feels good to do because the music is bright

and has a strong beat . Don’t let the restarts put you off because

they are obvious and easy. Brooks & Dunn are always a

pleasure to listen to …. Hope you agree with me.

There’s lots of room for improvising in the ‘Charleston’ type steps

so I’ll leave it up to you to do what you will!  Have a bit of fun!

 

See you on the floor sometime………  Jan
