"Moving on up" (110 bpm)...M People ("Elegant Slumbing" / many compilations)Four Wall Line Dance:-
32 count - BeginnerChoreographers note:- A Push (Step) is similar to a Rock (Step) – except that the dancer is leaning ‘backward’.
The dance should present no problems to established Beginners or above within the new levels.
As steps are short there is plenty of room for Latino hip movements for extra flavour.
