Berta is actually 64 beats per minute. It's a common mistake to count Latin music in half time, which is apparently what Marianna did here. That doesn't change the fact, however, that this is a great dance. Thanks Marianna.

I stand corrected. I was thinking of this as a Salsa rhythm, but it's really a samba, which does have fewer beats per phrase. Marianna is correct.
