And what we’re going to be doing here guys is replacing our basic side action with a running step forward. Run, run, run, rock, step, run, run, run, reversing it, two, three, cha-cha one, two, three, cha-cha one, two, three. Okay, so now let’s talk about how we are going to dance that with a partner.

Christina: For the ladies, we are going to start going side right, while the gentlemen start going side left.

Aaron: And one, two, three, lowering the handhold, changing to a two-hand hold, run, run, run, two, three, run, run, run, two, three. Or a no handhold, one, two, three. Leaving way for a little bit of interpretive arm styling two, three and just whatever feels good. One, two, three, cha-cha one.
