Need a challenge!?! Look at this ABCTag phrased advanced dance. Frequently the "advanced" dances have not been anywhere reflective of the tagged script status. Fire On Up is advanced and then some.... but with some practice, oxygen and defibrillator you'll tame this beast. Really interesting step sequences, some arms that really stretch my abilities, clever musicality and rhythmic nods. Wow! Wow! WOW!
