Looking to learn the Bossa Nova 66, but don’t have the space, or want to practice at home? Check out our sequence for small spaces series of videos.

Sequence dancing is where you repeat the same 16 or 32 bar routine throughout a song, dancing around the room, and in sync with everyone else.

Now that’s great when you have the space! What we’re going to show you today is how to practice the basic movements in your front room.

The Dance – Bossa Nova 66

Bossa Nova is another Brazilian dance with similarities to the Samba. The Bossa Nova 66 sequence dance also features a few Samba steps which should be familiar too.

The routine comprises a left foot box/reverse basic; opening up away from your partner, and back in again around on the spot; whisks, promenade and counter promenade bota fogos and finally an underarm spin for the follower.

To convert this into the full routine you would only need to do the open outs down the room, rather than around on the spot.

The Music

We’ve used two tracks for this Bossa Nova 66 lesson. The first is How About That! by the Chalalatas

and then our faster piece (a Samba) is Summer Lilac by Bonsaye
