...and just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water.... along came this surfer dude trying hard not to do a wipeout with SURFS UP.
Now, its not going to be everyones 'cup of tea' - so you will have to try and explain to those who refuse to do the dance just WHY you are smiling... this IS a fun dance - in the truest sense of the word.
I have also included a piccy of the Surfer Position - in case you are scratching your head.SURFS UPChoreographed by:-
William ‘The Silver Surfer’ Sevone. July 31st 2007 Choreographed to:-
"Surfin USA" (158 bpm)... The Beach Boys (many compilations)Four Wall Line Dance:-
32 count – Advanced BeginnerChoreographers note:-
If you take this dance seriously – chill out… there isn’t anything serious about
this dance other than trying to complete it without falling off your board???.
The dance starts with the Intro, the dancer then takes up the Surfer position at the same time starting the
main dance – sounds complicated ?…. Noooooo way.. there are more words on this script than moves.
In this case the tempo and some of the more …err.. unusual moves dictated the actual level of the dance.
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
Dance starts with the very quick guitar intro… main dance start on the vocals:-INTRO:
(vision – small stretch of sand.. board under your arm - the blue water beyond.. )
As the guitar comes in, take 6 very small running steps forward – and ‘jump’ (step forward) onto your board
Assume the SURFER POSITION:
Stepping forward onto left foot with knees slightly bent, Head, left foot and
arm forward, right foot and upper body toward 3:00, right arm pointing backward.
The dancer will assume this position at the start of EVERY new wall (on count 1). It doesn’t matter if it
runs into the start of the dance – that’s all part of the fun.THE SURFER POSITION – WIGGLE HIPS. ALL CHANGE. THE SURFER POSITION – WIGGLE HIPS (12:00)
