Choreographer’s Note:
The music starts to slow at approx 2 mins 20 secs. The dance slows with the music.

Ending:
The song will finish during wall 5. Dance as far as count “2&” of section 2 then make a ¼ turn left to face the front, stepping right to right side.

My Thanks to Mike & Brenda for preparing the sheet.
