Love Repeats

Count: 32                     Wall: 4                         Level: Beginner

Choreographer: Michele Burton

Music: Love You Like A Love Song by Selena Gomez & The Scene (BPM: 114

Intro: 8 counts.

[1 – 8] STEP TOUCHES TO RIGHT AND LEFT DIAGONALS
1 – 4                      Step R to forward right diagonal; Touch L beside R; Step L to forward left diagonal; Touch R beside L
5 – 8                      Step R to forward right diagonal; Touch L beside R; Step L to forward left diagonal; Touch R beside L
Styling option: see below

[9 – 16] ROCKING CHAIR ~ JAZZ BOX 1/4 TURN
1 – 4                      Rock R forward; Return weight to L; Rock R back; Return weight L
5 – 8                      Step R over L; Step L back; Turn 1/4 R stepping R to right; Step L slightly in front of R (3:00)
Styling option: see below

[17 – 24] VINE RIGHT ~ STEP TOUCH STEP TOUCH
1 – 4                      Step R to right; Step L behind R; Step R to right; Touch L beside R
5 – 8                      Step L to left; Touch R beside L; Step R to right; Touch L beside R
Styling option: see below

[25–32] WEAVE LEFT ~ BUMP AND BUMP AND BUMP, HOLD
1 – 4                      Step L to left; Step R behind L; Step L to left; Cross R over L
5&6&7-8                               Step L to left bumping hips left; Bump hips R; Bump hips L; Bump hips R; Bump hips L (wt on L); Hold
Styling for bumps: With each bump, lean a little farther over the left foot. By ct. 7, wt. has settled into L hip. Both knees stay bent throughout bumping action.
The bumps hit the musical accent at the end of the choruses– (Re)-peat- peat- peat- peat-peat

BEGIN AGAIN

Ready to add a little styling and variations? For those teaching experienced beginners, here are a few ideas:
• Give the step touches a funky look:
Step to the diagonals, leading with the hip and shoulder, using a larger than normal step
Take the arms away from body to low V on the ‘step.’ Bring the arms in on the ‘touch.’
These steps are now on right and left diagonals rather that straight forward (cool)
• Finish the stylized step touches on the left diagonal and do the rocking chair facing 10:00
• Replace the weave with a 3 step turn.
