AIR

CHOREOGRAPHER: William Sevone (October 9th 2003) email: williamsevone@yahoo.com
COUNT: 32
TYPE: 1 Wall Line Dance
LEVEL: Advanced Beginner
MUSIC: The Air That I Breathe by Hollies-84 bpm (Greatest Hits / many compilations)
	The Air That I Breathe by The Mavericks-84 bpm (The Mavericks)

Choreographer's note: Even though The Mavericks do an excellent version of this
song... it has to be said it DOES belong to The Hollies. That said, whichever
version you choose I hope you not only enjoy the dance but you wrap yourself in
the words. The music is phrased but the dance is not... a straight 32 count that
will allow the dancer some artistic flair.

Dance starts on the vocals with feet together and weight on the left
