"Sevillanas touch"- when starting Sevillana dance we shoud do an starting beat:

First: complete beat like TA-RRI-TA-PAM-PAM (steps 1-5) and later and incomplet one with TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA sounds (steps 6 to 10).

Later we continue with the traditional: RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA-RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA (steps 11-16).



After that, we play: RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA-RRI-TA-RRI-TA-PI-TA (steps 11 to 16).
