If You Can Walk You Can Dance (SSA)

Instrumentation/Voicing: 
SSA, piano, claves

An optimistic Zimbabwean proverb sets the stage for this contagiously joyful Latin dance song. This best-selling piece is full of surprises, including a brief a cappella interlude, some finger snapping, and a five second "break" during which the chorus members all just talk!
