Absolute Beginner Contra Fun
"Sherry" by The Jersey Boys Cast, 130 BPM
Alternatively the original version by Frankie Valli & Four Seasons - 118 BPM
Start on vocals.
NB : Can be danced as a normal line dance but is more fun to do in contra line! Just make sure you are standing opposite a space, not directly opposite a person, so when you walk forward you can pat hands with 2 people, one on each side; and when you shuffle forward you can pass through the gap, smile and say hi!
