BEGIN AGAIN!

Please note: My goal, when choreographing Cowboy Rhythm in 1992, was to create a dance that makes sounds which have a rhythm. I had no particular song in mind but hoped it would be danced to many different songs. I’m thrilled and thankful that it is still being enjoyed today in many countries around the world. You might notice regional variations. For instance, in Virginia (where they like to dance Cowboy Rhythm to the song “One Too Many” by Luke Combs) they do a stomp on count 4 and 8 of the first set of 8.
