The translation of "Ou Est Ma Tete?" is not "Where is my heart?" It's "Where is my head?"

The song is very nice and the dance has charm and fits the music. Regarding your stepsheet ... proofread first, post second.

Nice dance. Step sheet needs correcting. Have to agree with Tom. Proof read before posting.

Love the music and love the dance, but step sheet does not coincide with the dance you are doing. Please fix.
