Alternative Music

 

 

When using the Alternative song, there are 2 restarts.

On wall 3, dance section 1, then restart the dance. (facing 6:00)

On wall 6, dance section 1, then restart the dance. (facing 12:00)

 

Its an easy style dance which will fit most waltz music, so feel free to upgrade the music choice to one of your preference, in keeping to your skill level of students. I picked a really slow song to enable beginners a chance to cope with the rolling turns.

 

Have fun.  J
