DANCE:  36 counts, 2 walls, 114  bpm, Intermediate level,  20 count intro  Choreo June 09

Written by request of the  Country Line Dance Association Singapore, who are very adamant about the

preservation of country music for line dancing.  They wanted an intermediate level dance to this song.

It was my great pleasure to oblige and I’ll teach “Country Music Forever (In Singapore)” at my coming

Singapore workshops.                                         3 RESTARTS

This song has been around for a while, but the message is still just as relevant today as it was back then.  I guess all things have to change but still, I wonder why….??   Remember that old saying “if it’s not broke, why fix it?”  I guess that just about sums it up for me.

I am not against any form of music and have to say that I have an appreciation for

 most genres,  but I am against changing the style. 

Why can’t the reformists just start a new style and leave the tried and true styles alone???

Ok, I’ve had my say on that subject and I’m getting down off the butter box now!  (-:

 

Hope you enjoy the dance

See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
