Note: For Baby Girl song – For cool pose, you’ll finish the dance with slowing it slightly down on the last 8 counts (25-32) at 3 O’clock, Walk forward, R & L, Step R forward again & do a slow pivot ¼ Turn L & pose. For ‘Girl On Fire’ song-you will just need to hold when she breaks, then start the top dance again, EZ. Feel free to do my dance to other music, country/non country! Have FUN with my “Don’t Make Me Cry“ dance! “GOTTA DANCE”!!
