William Sevone – September 2018

"December '63 (Oh What A Night) " (104 bpm)... The Four Seasons

Choreographers note:- Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Choreographing ‘Line’ Dances, from 1968 and ‘30 Something’ to 2018 with ‘Samba Made Easy’. The dance uses ‘a’ steps – these are NOT the same as ‘&’ in both looks and timing.
If unsure, there are many videos available with which to learn the trademark ‘bounce’ as well as the timing of the Samba
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
