FALLIN' IN LOVE CopperKnob - Linedance Stepsheets

Count: 32Wall: 2Level: intermediate/advanced

Choreographer: Jo Thompson

Music: Fallin' by Alicia Keys



The music has a timing that feels like a very fast waltz (6/8 timing). However, the dance is not a waltz. I am counting it using "rolling triples" as in 1&a, 2&a, 3&a, 4&a, 5&a, 6&a, 7&a, 8&a, etc. The a is pronounced "ah"

SIDE, SIDE DRAG, CROSS, ½ TURN RIGHT, CROSS ROCK, SIDE, CROSS, ½ TURN RIGHT
1-2Step right to right side, large step left to left side allowing right foot to drag
3a4Step right across front of left, turn ¼ right on right foot, step back on left, turn ¼ right on left foot, step right to right side
5a6Rock left across in front of right, recover weight back to right foot, step left foot to left side
7a8Step right across front of left, turn ¼ right on right foot, step back on left, turn ¼ right on left foot, step right to right side
Option: there is an optional extra turn on 8&a. It will be very quick, so keep the steps very small. On count 8, turn an extra ¼ right to step forward on right foot instead of side with right foot. On the &, turn ½ right, step back on left. On the a, turn ¼ right step right to right side. Whether you do the extra turn or not, you should still end facing the front.

REPEAT
When using the song "Fallin'" by Alicia Keys, start counting on the word "out", wait a 16 count intro, then start the dance on the word "good". Remember: because of the rolling triple rhythm, the count of 5, 6, 7, 8 will be very slow. At the end of the song, you will finish facing the front. Do a large step to the right and drag for a finish. Good luck!
