Enjoy this easy Rumba to many dances, including: Besame Mucho (any),
Sway, Rhythm of the Rain, Save the Last Dance for Me, or any others of
course that you like!

I chose the Trini Lopez “The Album Version” over all of his and others – it is perkier,
a touch quicker without losing the attitude of the song or the dance :-)

Please do not alter this step sheet in any way. If you would like to use on your
website please make sure it is in its original format and include all contact
details on this script. [ ]

S 1: 3&4 I find its more comfortable on these two QQ steps to step L a little back from R on the diagonal and then replace weight to R. Either way is fine - as long as you are dancing!
