(As the main track is fast I have given a slower option for practice)
It will fit with lots of other waltz tracks as it is a standard 48 count dance. Have fun choosing.

Dedicated to: Juliet Lam (USA)
Start: On the lyrics

10-11-12 Stomp Right slightly to side, Clap, Clap (weight Right)

Choreographer note: As the dance is Viennese Waltz beat you will note that this is choreographed with a normal size step but then the wording “towards” on the drags and not “into”.
Take nice small steps on the basics.

Finish: Dance finishes after lunge so simply recover on Left to front and stomp Right into Left

Juliet requested I choreograph a dance to this track. Juliet helped with arranging the sets of 12 with me
until we were both happy. It was choreographed on Juliet’s husbands birthday.

Juliet is an inspiration to all who enjoy her dance videos and clear teaching techniques.
I hope you like it …….Enjoy!
