DANCE:  64 counts,    2 walls,    120 bpm,  Suitable for Easy Int. level
The first 32 counts of this dance is the original dance called Boat On The River.  It is a great little 4 wall Beginner level dance but the music goes for over 4 minutes and I was asked to put some more steps to it-so here is BIGGER Boat on the River!!  It works really well on a split floor and caters for all levels of dancer from Advanced Beginner onwards. Every 2nd wall all dancers will begin the dance together.

      Hope you enjoy BIGGER Boat On The River.  I am responsible only for the last 32 counts and had nothing  to do with the choice of music - which I happen to like... in spite of it's  non-country origin.  It's a catchy little piece isn't it?
             
    See you on the floor sometime.......  Jan
