|Subject: SOUL BOSSA: 48/4 Advanced (music by Quincy Jones) Mon 15 Dec 2008, 05:47|| |
Ready for the Christmas festivities...... ????
Some might say I have 'overcooked the Turkey' or 'stuffed the Chicken before it was dead'... but the 48 count SOUL BOSSA has..... 5 restarts....Arghhhhhhhhh.
I know, I know.... but for those who know the music by Quincy Jones ('Soul Bossa Nova') will know EXACTLY where those restarts will come in.. those who haven't heard the music before (I don't think there will be THAT many dancers) it will become obvious after a very VERY short period.
... oh, the dance is levelled at Absolute Beginners....
only joking (though have you seen some of those AB dances)... its levelled at ADVANCED.
Choreographed by:- William Sevone. December 9th 2008 Choreographed to:- "Soul Bossa Nova" (152 bpm)... Quincy Jones (many compilations / iTunes)Four Wall Line Dance:- 48count AdvancedDance sequence:- 48-48-32-48-32-32-32-48-32-f16Choreographers note:- The steps may look simple.. its the multiple restarts that will get you thinking.Faster and funkier than the original laid back syncopated Bossa Nova style, but full use of the hips and arms will go some way in recapturing the original flavour.
