Thank you so much to all of your lovely demo & teach videos of our little beginner party dance. And of course to all instructors teaching it in their classes. Much appreciated. (The artist/singers are from Sweden and the lyrics are in Swedish but "Living La Dolce Vita" is an Italian expression. In Italian, la dolce vita literally translates as “the sweet life”, or “the good life”. La dolce vita in Italy means a life of pleasure and simple luxury; it’s about enjoying the good things in life and about really indulging in the things you love.) Hope you all enjoy the dance and have a lot of fun with it. / Jessica 🇸🇪 & Niels 🇩🇰.
