Dance sequence:- 70-20-70-16-Finale
Choreographers note:- The dance is performed 2/4 timing – HALF TEMPO or 101 bpm.
The music is heavily phrased – the dance is not. Go for the ‘styling options’ to add a little fun. ALSO.. at the very
start of the music (not the dance) you can ‘Hail The Taxi’ twice… just to get you in the mood…
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
