Here We Go, La Copa de la Vida
Kari McHugh Kyriakos (USA) - June 2021
La Copa De La Vida - Ricky Martin
Count In: Don't start counting till after he says, "Do you really want it?" three times.
Thereafter, when the music starts, count to 16 then start dancing on, "Go, go, go, ..."
*Tag: Do after Wall 4 and before starting pattern on Wall 5 (i.e. when facing 12:00 for the second time)
*8-Counts Total: Double Hip Bumps R (1&2), Double Hips L (3&4); Single Hip Bumps R(5),L(6),R(7),L(8)
Optional Finish for Ending, So That You Will End Facing the Starting Wall Instead of 3:00:
The last pattern will start facing 12:00. Dance the pattern fully except don't turn the last move which is the quarter-right-turning triple step. Instead, just do that triple moving forward while opening both arms fully to the sides and parallel with the floor i.e. shuffle forward with outstretched arms - ta da!
The ending is very noticeable as the music will be fading.
