                                 *Feel free to use your arms for expression if you feel so inclined!

 

 

Tags and restarts are an integral part of line dances these days, so incorporating a simple four count tag in a beginner level dance is, in my opinion, quite appropriate.

Hope you think so too and that you enjoy Hometown Earthquake.

 

  See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
