Dancing Queen breakdown: Part 4 of 8

Dynamos, it's time to shake those hips on a whole new level. Enter Part 4!


Review Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 prior to adding this without the context of the opening choreography. Once you're comfortable with Part 4 (below), turn on the music (Dancing Queen, version from the Mamma Mia! motion picture) and dance along.


I break all of this down, first, facing toward you. I have already inverted my movements so that you can follow on the appropriate lead, as we will perform it in the Flash Mob. That means, consider me your "mirror image." If I say right, I mean your actual right. When watching me face you, I'll be mimicking your movements just as if you are looking in a mirror. Don't overthink that-- "she's saying right, but it's really her left." (Leave the overthinking to me).

In the end, I'll turn around so that you can watch my backside and follow me, step-by-step, move-by-move, in tandem. We should be moving in synchrony.

This particular tutorial is a little tricky, because it includes parts where you are facing forward and backward, but, Dynamo, you have come this far- I trust you will catch on. It may help to remember that all of this leads right, and when you turn around (to the lyric "gone"), pedal your right foot around, waving with your right hand.





Next week, we'll add the real music- yeeee! Learn up to here, and next week's tutorial is just the chorus (which, you already learned in Week 3), and putting that much together with the real music! (I know you've been enjoying my nails-on-a-chalkboard singing voice, so don't worry, I'll serenade you with some of that, too).


By providing you with these short pieces, whether you can attend the next Zoom Live practice (on Wednesday, July 7 at 6pm CST) or not, you'll be totally prepared for the real deal Flash Mob, which will go down at 100 Blue Hole Park Georgetown, TX 78626 at 6pm CST on my 40th birthday, Wed, Aug. 11. {For those who can stay and play after the Flash Mob, we'll have drinks at El Monumento. El Mon is an interior Mexican restaurant with a contemporary twist, adjacent to Blue Hole Park}.


So, for the next 8 #ShakeYourBumDaySunday sessions, you'll progressively learn ALL the choreography (which no longer includes jumping in the San Gabriel River at the end).

If you can attend the next Zoom Live session, where we put it all together on Wed, July 7 at 6pm CST, please register at www.brookbenten.com/events-1.


If you don't plan on attending a practice, but will be at the "real deal" August 11 at 6pm CST, please email me at BB@BrookBenten.com so that I know to plan on your presence.
