Long Live Love
Description: 1 Wall Line Dance, 32 Counts, Intermediate Level
Signature Song: “Live, Laugh, Love” by Clay Walker (103 bpm) on CD “Live, Laugh, Love”.
Start with the words. There is a perfect place to cut the music at 3:09 (this is
preferred) ...or dance through the 4-count phrase break with little difficulty.
Alternate Faster: “Lola, Lola” by Ricky Martin (110 bpm) on CD “Vuelve”
SIDE-ROCK-FORWARD 4 TIMES (“L” shaped pattern - look for more!)
&1-2 Step ball of R to right side, Rock sideways onto L, Step R forward
&3-4 Step ball of L to left side, Rock sideways onto R, Step L forward
&5-6, &7-8 Repeat &1-2, &3-4
FORWARD, ROCK/TURN, SHUFFLE, TOPS TURN 360o (2 modified Montereys)
9 Step R forward
10 Rock back onto L turning 1/2 right - or finish the 1/2 turn on the next step ( 6:00)
11&12 Shuffle forward on R-L-R. On the last step of the shuffle, bend the R knee (prep)
Preliminary notes for 13-16: A “Tops Turn” is like 2 Half Monterey Turns, but we add
toe sweeps, creating a unique effect resembling a (slowly) spinning top! Start each
toe sweep with one leg bent and the other leg fully extended. Do not lean the upper body.
13 With your R knee bent strongly: Sweep L toe from left side in a half circle clockwise
in front turning 1/2 right (12:00)
14 Step L beside R straightening up. (“Down” at 13, straighten “up” at 14.)
15 Bend L knee strongly and Sweep R toe from right side in a half circle clockwise
behind turning 1/2 right ( 6:00)
16 Step R beside L or slightly back straightening up. (“Down” at 15, “up” at 16.)

End of pattern. Begin again...
Note: This is a one-wall dance so the pattern should return us to the same spot at which we started. The
pattern has been designed to do that without effort, but some will need to adjust the size of their steps.
Thanks to Fay Son-Hing for the idea for the dance name.
