TAG: 4 Counts:- Freestyle Shimmy, Shake or Gyrate in place for 4 counts. Have fun with it!

Song ends while you’re on the 10th wall (at 9 o’clock), dance until count 1&2 of third section to end on front wall.

*Choreographer’s notes & styling tips: In the first section during the Cumbia Rocks forward, you can appear to be grinding your R heel. Also lift your L during the rocks to allow movement to the right.
In the third section the 3 brushes are very subtle, don’t extend the foot forward. In Salsa dancing it’s called “Shine”.
In the fourth section, the Paddle Turns are intended to be smooth, so while turning, the L knee technically hitches, but don’t exaggerate the hitch but rather focus on pressing the L foot and move your hips counter clockwise to make the half turn!
Although there are no “HOLDS” in this dance, don’t rush from step 8 into step 1. Imagine there’s a “&” hold to help you keep the timing of this song. *** Special thanx to my honey Bruno for his musical expertise ***

LOVE this, Rosie! Plan to teach this soon, and I'm betting it will be a hit with my students.
