How to Samba Line dance for Little Mermaid on Stranger Tides

How to Samba Line dance for Little Mermaid on Stranger Tides- Ursula sirens Samba ps web
A Historically Accurate Princess Dance 

Do you wonder how they dance under the sea? I did. Mermaids are nautical beings living under the sea. Ariel and the mermaids from pirates of the Caribbean on stranger tides need to get out and dance occasionally. The Caribbean dance samba would be a mermaid hit.

I paired pirates of the Caribbean with the Kraken queen of the deep Ursula. This unlikely crew demonstrates for land lubbers how to dance the samba line dance to the song “Under the Sea” by the Klaus Hallen ballroom orchestra. So grab your shoes, add a yo ho ho, and get dancing!

Where we filmed the Samba Line Dance:Lit trees Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding

We would like to thank Spruce Mountain Ranch for letting us film on their location. The 1,000 acres were originally known as the “Ben Lomond Ranch” in 1871.  In 1885 it was branded as the “Famous Daniels Ranch.” Tom and Lois Ames purchased the property In March 1999. They allocated 100 acres to a housing development “Spruce Mountain Estates”. The remaining acreage was creatively and uniquely renovated to sustain a purebred Angus seed stock operation, as well as create a distinct landscape and resort-like atmosphere for family, guests, and potential customers to enjoy.
