My Heart Tonight
Choreographed by:- William Sevone. August 31st 2008
Choreographed to:- "If I give my heart" (93 bpm/31 mpm)... Eva Cassidy ("Somewhere")
Four Wall Waltz:- 48 count - Intermediate
Choreographers note:- Ideally suited for the experienced Advanced Beginner dancer who has just moved into the Intermediate level.
This is a soft waltz - not a military two step. Soften the edges let your mind and not just your body, feel the music.
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
Dance starts after the 24 count intro on the word give as in If I GIVE my heart to you tonight
