I like it a lot. This little dance makes it easy to teach a rumba box and mambos--nice job!

Thank you❤️

Your dance is not 16 counts but 32 counts due to slowness of the music.
Section 1 - Your Rumba box is counts 1 -8
Section 2 - Side, Kick x2 and Side, Close, Side, Close (Chasse) is counts 1 -8
Section 3 Right and Left Mambo with holds is 1 -8
Section 4 Step right, Hold, Step left, hold, Walk around half R, L, R, Hold is counts 1-8.

If you watch other video's to this music that are also Beginner or Complete they are all mostly single counts. Your dance is fine but you have put in 1/2 beats that are simply not there.

Thank you for your feedback Karen Kennedy. I see what you meen and you are more than welcome to count it as a 32 count dance. Hope you enjoy the dance, however you chose to count it.

I am in agreement with Karen Kennedy.
Also an Absolute Beginner is someone who has no dance experience to maybe only 7-8 lesson - learning the very basics.
The dance itself flows nicely and cannot be faulted.

Thank you for the feedback metaltigger, you are ofcourse welcome to count to 8 and make it a 32 count if you want to. I found that it made it easier for my student to follow when i made it the way i count it. it then gets a "slower" count and some absolute beginners find that easier to follow. this dance was originally made for seniors and other walk in students, and it has been a hit. so dont worry about how you are counting my dance, count it however you want, just enjoy it <3 i hope you do!
