Dance Like You Love It
( 6 Votes)
Dance Like Yo Daddy by Meghan Trainor; 130* bpm
#48 count intro; start weight on L
NOTE: This is meant to be a line dancer-friendly interpretation of the National Dance Day 2016 routine.
Because of repetitions there are only 32 actual line dance steps in Part A and 16 in Part B, so even with the phrasing and Tag, I believe it is still a beginner level dance.
*Recommend slowing the music per the National Dance Day demo video.
