Words are far insufficient to express our enjoyment when doing this Rio De Amor.
Thanks a lot for choreographing this beautiful line dance.

Taught this dance tonight to my Monday class and even a few of the complete beginners managed most of the dance. I put the dance on again at the end of the night without walking it through and everyone remembered it pretty well considering we were tired. Lovely music and dance steps which fit the music really well and a few loved how the hitch goes into the weave.
