This is an easy little dance, which is a bit pacey towards the end.

If you find the 1/2 shuffles too fast then just shuffle straight ahead.

Let the momentum of the 1/2 turn pivot at the end of the dance

take your body into the first 1/4 turn, at the start of the dance.

That  was the reason for putting it there.

 

If you can’t turn your body just touch toe fwd at counts 1 and 9,

that makes it really easy.

 

Whatever, I hope you enjoy Mexican Shuffle.

         See you on the floor sometime…. Jan
