Hits all accents of the song and requires a repeat phrase on 1st and 2nd chorus.
Because of the feel of the song I gave you the option of using fast hip bumps on the chorus of the song and even through the rest of the song. During the 1st and 2nd verse - the song is kind of mellow so I gave you the easier hip bumps to use there.

REPEAT
During 1st verse use easy hip movement and do hip sway with out lowering too much. Also do easy shimmy. During chorus on "Shake it to the Left, Shake it to the Right' - use fast hip bumps. Also use a "funky" shimmy and 'low' hip sway. Use side body rolls on side shimmy during steps 57 - 64 as an option during chorus and add an extra side shimmy and claps on 1st and 2nd chorus only. This is important to maintain phrasing for the song. When teaching this, just tell them that during the chorus part (Shake it to the Left, Shake it to the Right) simply repeat the side shimmy and clap a 2nd time. You will also make the direction change so there will be 2 direction changes during the chorus. At the end of the song, during the part calling out the cities, I like to add excitement by adding a clap on count 4 & 8 of running man. also add a clap on 2,4,6,8, during side step hip rolls. At the end of the next full cycle of the dance add an extra set of side step hip rolls and shimmy claps before finishing last time through dance. This is not really necessary but it phrases better. This may seem like a lot but it really isn't. I have taught this dance about 40 times and it is easy enough even for beginners. Intermediate Advanced dancers pick it up in a snap. You will have to call out the phrase changes and extra patterns for the first few times and then they will get it. Enjoy.
