A LINE-dancing choreographer from Godmanchester has devised his own World Cup dance to accompany a new tournament song.

Alan Haywood, 57, who has been teaching line-dancing for more than eight years, has created a dance to accompany the song Watching England Win Again by Gaylord Vincent & The Sweet FA Choir.

Mr Haywood, who takes his teaching around the country and has been teaching his new dance in Portsmouth, told The Hunts Post: "I am proud to have written this dance as my contribution to try and get the country dancing and supporting England.

"It's a catchy singalong song that people can dance to and get fit during the World Cup."

Mr Haywood has recently returned from World Cup host country Germany where he taught a series of dance workshops.

"I didn't teach them my new World Cup dance as I didn't think the song Watching England Win Again would go down very well. But, where I have taught it, it has been very popular and everyone has picked it up really quickly."

The dance, which took only a couple of hours to create, is described as a modern take on an old classic.

"Everyone thinks line-dancing is old-fashioned country dancing but it isn't - it has moved forward and is now used in pop and even dance music," said Mr Haywood.
