Musique :                  That’s What I Like by Bruno Mars

Note: Phrasing AAB AAB AA-short B starting at count 33
There are many sections which repeat and many holds, so it’s not as difficult as it may seem looking at the numerous counts.

Teaching Tips :
★ You will dance on the lyrics often in Part B. Play the music during lessons (or sing it!) as the steps
match the lyrics. Some students will find the lyrics easier to learn with than the counts.
★ First B starts in music at :32 seconds, second B at 1:43, third B (shorter) starts at 2:55.

Please do not alter this step sheet in any way. If you would like to use it on your website, it must be used in
its original format. Contact the choreographer with your questions.
