This is an AWESOME dance. I seem to have 2 left feet and struggle to remember steps. You must have rehearsed a lot to get this good. The best thing is-- it looks like you are really enjoying yourself!

Well the students culture is very important and in Katrina's case her parents taught her the dance. Her facial expressions are an important part of the dance, dancers have to look happy when performing!
