    Best New Songs

    Here's an interesting song I heard on the radio lately. It has elements of Samba, Hustle, and maybe even WCS in as well: Alan Walker - "All Falls Down" (feat. Noah Cyrus with Digital Farm Animals) (2017)

    Samba Shadow (getting in and out)

    Spiral turn? Probably the easiest I would think. Maybe a variant of a botofogo as well. Does it have to be syllabus?

    Having a hard time counting music.

    See I always have trouble with "Open Arms" because the beat doesn't really go continuously throughout the song, but when it's there it's pretty easy to tell.

    exposing too much when dancing

    I dance International Latin... the costumes are incredibly skimpy. I wear dance briefs to avoid this if the dress is not a bodysuit. Maybe they were flesh toned? Camera effect on them can make things worse than they actually were. It's difficult to tell without seeing the video.

    I've reached the top education of the field I'm in, and there really isn't much further for me to go in it. What I do to maintain that is to dedicate at least a handful of hours to keep up on scientific & business journals to ensure I can provide my clients with the highest level of service -...
