Choreographers note:- In honour, to what is still THE greatest era for music and dance – the 1960’s.
‘Let’s go back ..wayyyy back … back into time
When the only thing that existed was THE sound..
THE MOTOWN SOUND.. MOTOWN MAGIC
Music and dance… ‘
Always remember – ‘The beat may reach your feet – but the rhythm should electrify your soul’.
Dance starts with the vocals

Style note: All Taps are performed with in a bouncy, laid back and relaxed way… 
Let your body ‘feel’ the music – it’s the ONLY way to do this dance Add your own styling –make it yours.
