We Are Blessed

This dance was choreographed by Ann Kruit and Jeremy Sherer to fit the song "Anachnu M'vorachim". It fits music that has a 16-beat chorus with 24-beat verses.

Each numbered step takes eight beats of music. The entire dance is done facing inward (except for the turn). Part A is done holding hands, Part B is not.

Part A

  1. Mayim L (starting with R foot crossing in front of left foot), and repeat
  2. Tcherkessia, and repeat

Part B

  1. {hands sway} Catch your weight by crossing R foot in front of left foot and then rocking back onto your L foot (also called a coupé L). Then return your R foot to a neutral standing position. Then catch your weight by crossing L foot in front of right foot and then rocking back onto your R foot (also called a coupé R). Then return your L foot to a neutral standing position. Then once more catch your weight by crossing R foot in front of left foot and then rocking back onto your L foot (also called a coupé L).

Then return your L foot to a neutral standing position. Then once more catch your weight by crossing R foot in front of left foot and then rocking back onto your L foot (also called a coupé L).
