Choreographer: 
Lisa McCammon, June 2015
Music: 
Fire Under My Feet* by Leona Lewis (single, approximately 3:47), 100 bpm.
Start after 16 counts, about 11 seconds in when you hear the piano chord the second time she sings "I got fire under my feet." NOTE: the music goes off phrase but returns, so Restarts are not necessary.
Counterclockwise rotation; start with weight on L - No Tags Or Restarts

Thanks to Judy McDonald for her feedback and suggestions, and to my students for their patience as this dance evolved.

[1-8] HEEL, HEEL, R MAMBO, HEEL, HEEL, L MAMBO
1-2Touch R heel slightly forward twice
3&4Rock R to side, recover weight to L, step R home
5-6Touch L heel slightly forward twice
7&8Rock L to side, recover weight to R, step L home
(Harder option: heel switches for 1&2& and 5&6&)

[9-16] STOMP, CLAP, STOMP, CLAP, STOMP-&-STEP,STOMP-&-STEP
1-2Turning slightly to right diagonal, stomp R, clap
3-4Turning slightly to left diagonal, stomp L, clap
(Harder option syncopated stomp-claps R&L&R&L& for 1&2&3&4&
5&6Turning R toes in, stomp R next to L, step onto L, step R to side (you're stepping RLR)
7&8Turning L toes in, stomp L next to R, step onto R, step L to side (you're stepping LRL)
(Hint: for counts 5&6, 7&8, think cha-cha-cha, cha-cha-cha. Keep steps small and close together; I cue "stomp that bug, stomp that bug")

[17-24] CROSS ROCK, RECOVER, CHASSE RIGHT, CROSS ROCK, RECOVER, CHASSE LEFT TURNING 1/4
1-2Cross rock R over L, recover weight L

OPTIONAL ENDING: The last repetition starts at [6:00] with 16 counts left. The music fades a little so keep counting.
Dance through the first set, then substitute the following second set:
1-2Step forward R, clap
3-4Turn left ½ [12:00] taking weight onto L, clap
5&6&7Stomp R to side, clap, stomp L to side, clap, stomp R to side (this hits the lyrics "Can't put out these flames")
