Note: * 2024 is the 40th anniversary of “The Bird”. It is also my 40th danciversery. “The Bird” was the very first line dance I learned 40 years ago, so I felt it would be fun to pay homage to that dance and re-choreograph it with my own unique flavor. The vine is the only original part of the dance. Dan and I work together to come up with this quirky bit of choreography just having fun at practice.
