CHOREOGRAPHER’S NOTES: At the end of the song "Million Dollar Cowboy 2000", you will be dancing the
heel jacks at &21&22&23. Slow down with the music. You will end with your R heel forward at count 23.
“Brush off the dust” by slapping right thigh with right hand on &24 - left to right or right to left - your choice.
Styling: For the coolest look of a Million Dollar Cowboy, have your hands grasping your belt buckle or near the
front of your waist. As a fun option in the first 8-count, when you hear the words "He's A Million Dollar
Cowboy", try holding your thumbs near your chest as if holding out suspenders. (Also, later in the song.)
