Level: 
Intermediate Fun Partner Progressive
Choreographer: 
Rachael McEnaney (UK) & Ryan Lindsey (USA) Sept 2010
Music: 
"We No Speak Americano (I Like That)" (UK Radio Edit) – Yolando B Cool, D Cup & Nabildon (approx 125bpm)
Partner Dance: This dance is a rotating circle partner dance. It is not necessarily male/female as there isn’t a predominant leader – almost ALL the steps are exactly the same on the same foot so people can learn either version and hopefully be able to adapt to either one with ease. On the parts that are slightly different it has been detailed as person A and person B so find a partner – if there is a male dancer it is probably better they do part B.
Where I have typed the clock signs for direction to face bear the following in mind: 12.00 is outside of circle – 6.00 is inside circle.
Tag: At the end of the 2nd rotation there is a tag – see notes below.

Count In: 16 counts from start of track.

Person A will be slightly in front of B and slightly to the left – everyone is facing the outside of the circle. When EVERYONE stands side by side you should all be close enough together to hold hands.
Person B has both arms by side with palms facing up – Person A has both arms by side with palms ontop of Person B’s.
