Samba rhythm consists of a series of "medium, short, long" beats. The following text uses the convention of showing these short beats as "a" beats. They always correspond to short steps.VARIATION 1: LINE DANCE WITH SAMBA WALKS Instead of the hip bump sequence during the last 6 counts of the dance, try a "progressive samba walk". You can add any degree of Latin body styling as you wish.25Left foot forward26Pivot ½ turn to your right (weight ends on right)27Smallish step forward on left with half weight (bend both knees slightly)aBounce up slightly and drag right foot back very slightly28Drag left foot back slightly29a30Repeat above on opposite feet31a32Repeat 27a28 (end with full weight over left)VARIATION 2: LINE DANCE FOR COUPLES Except for the last 8 counts, this is the original line dance with a sweetheart hold, and the man just changing sides (and arms) with the turns. The objective of the last 8 counts is to get the man back on the lady's left side, ready to start the next wall. The method shown here is three over the head turns (no cheating!). Start in sweetheart position with the man to the left of the lady and slightly back ROCK DIAGONAL SHUFFLE ¼ TURN SHUFFLE1Rock back on your right (to right diagonal 4:00)2Replace weight onto left (facing left diagonal 10:00)3&4Right lock (right, left, right) (facing left diagonal 10:00)5Lean left to left side6Making ¼ turn to your right step the right foot forward Man moves to right of lady on 5-67&8Left lock forward (left, right, left)CUBAN HIP STEPS ROCK & COASTER9Step right to the right side10Bring left into right11&12Side ways shuffle right, left, right.
