Many beginners have danced or are familiar with “Cha Cha Step” (easier to learn than coaster or sailor step even for ultra beginners). S4, S5, S8 have options (both below & in video) for dancers that are brand new to the dance floor and/or have limited range of motion. Chose to ignore Restart for beginner ease—worked well, (see video).
Country song suggestions:-
“One Night At A Time” George Strait (Google Play • iTunes • AmazonMP3)
“I Should Have Been True” Mavericks (slower tempo) (Google Play • iTunes • AmazonMP3)
“All you Do Is Bring Me Down” Mavericks (peppy) (Google Play • iTunes • AmazonMP3)
“Sparks Fly” Taylor Swift (Google Play • iTunes • AmazonMP3)
