Choreographer: 
Daniel Chen. (Australia) Feb 2014
Music: 
Vostochnie Skazkie – Arash & Blestyaschie. The Ultimate Latin Album 8, from WRD. 2-CD set, Ref. [WR2CD5050] www.wrdmusic.com
This particular ballroom version of the music is recommended because it has a tempo of 50 BPM, which is right for Samba dancing. Other versions of this music, whether in Russian or in English (Temptation) need to be slowed down to this tempo if used.

Start dancing the Tag on the drum beat, right after the first 16 counts of singing. Then complete the 4 walls with the step instructions below. On the 5th wall, just dance the Tag again to finish the dance.
Stop the music right after the “crash" sound at the end of this Tag, or trim the music file with an audio software tool.
