This dance is dedicated to our dear friend, Rita and others who are walking miracles after surviving severe cases of Covid and other serious illnesses. Miracles do happen like that!

Note: This music is Samba which is counted 1 a2 (for the most part). This dance is choreographed as a one wall dance using simple Samba patterns to keep it easy. Samba has a "Pulse" action, where the knees bend and straighten. Samba Walks and Botofogos use a slightly different action where the knees bend with hips slightly forward (under the body) on count 1, straighten knees via a "pull back" of the hips on count 2. NOTE: Section 2 is repeated every time you face 6:00. (Counts 9-16 & 25-32).
