The Breakup Song by Francesca Battistelli (Using a Rolling Count)
Music is 6/8 time, but the rolling count is used for this dance. - (No Tags/Restarts)
The Breakup song is a beautiful song about breaking up with the fear in our lives. The fear that holds us back from obtaining our full potential. The message is great, and the music is awesome. I hope you enjoy it. And never let fear control you!
Intro is about 16 counts: She is singing “sick and tired……”, you will hear a bold ‘Boom-Boom-Boom-Boom’, start on the fourth “boom”.

Note 1: If you love spinning you could do a double turn on counts 4&a5 (instead of a single turn). Remember to come out of the rotation with a sweep of the right foot to cross over the left foot in the cross rock on counts 6-7.
Note 2: Optional arm styling - In the chorus when she sings “I am brave, ,…..and I am free” hold arms in the air while turning for “free”.
