Alt Music 1: “Parachute (Album Version) (3:40)” by Cheryl Cole (4 count intro, 116bpm)
CD Album: “3 Words” by Cheryl Cole
Alt Music 2: “Parachute (Radio Mix) (3:29)” by Cheryl Cole (4 count intro, 118bpm)
CD Single: “Parachute” by Cheryl Cole
The dance can also be danced to the original album version on Cheryl’s debut album “3 Words” and the radio mix on the “Parachute” cd single. It’s slightly slower and great to use as a practice track and as a floor split for any other dances out there :) If using this version there is a TAGLET needed on wall 3. On Wall 3 dance upto count “30”, replace counts “31&32” with the following:
7&8 Step back left, step right 1/4 turn right, step forward left.
Then add the 4 count tag and restart the dance.
