Hideaway Cha
Choreographed by Joanne Brady, Jamie Davis, Jo Thompson

Description: 32 count, 4 wall, intermediate line dance
Music: Dance With Me by Debelah Morgan
Some Things Never Change by Tim McGraw
You Ain't Hurt Nothin' Yet by John Anderson

Note: The dance works best if you start after 8 counts on the word "dance". If not, you can wait 40 counts and then start. The song is not perfectly phrased, but the syncopated sailors will go with words "and dance the night away" almost every time. This song is based on the classic melody "Hernando's Hideaway", thus the name of the dance.
