Come learn “Can’t Stop Dancing (EZ)” – danced to a fun Justin Timberlake song!


Check out this awesome new song from Justin Timberlake

I really REALLY REALLY like the song from Justin Timberlake called “Can’t Stop the Feeling

I double dog dare ya to listen to this song and not tap your foot or “chair dance” or wiggle your booty, or bust some kind of move!

It is a fun upbeat bouncy bit of cotton candy awesomeness that just demands that you dance to it!  Woot

Check out the music video:

Want the song?  Get it here…

Ooodles and Ooodles of dances from which to choose…

I spotted the video for the song (up above) on my Facebook feed and thought it was awesome.  So, I hopped over to Copperknob and checked to see if anyone had created a line dance for it and… [drum roll please] …there are, as I type this TWENTY-TWO LINE DANCES FOR THIS SONG!!!  OH-EM-GEE!

About a dozen of those are in the Absolute Beginner through Improver range.  Of them, the one that I think is the best is one that is choreographed by a lady who lives locally here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, in Richardson, named Juliet Lam.

I chose her dance because (1) it was the best of the AB through Imp dances and (2) since she is local, if you should hear this song at a club or party and there are other line dancers there, this line dance is the one that is most likely that will be danced in the DFW area.

Here is a demo of the dance:
