Count In: 8 counts from start of track, dance begins on vocals. Approx 124 bpm

Sequence: A-B-C, A-B-C, TAG, B-B-C-C
(Note: the easiest way to describe Tag/Bridges/Restarts in the step sheet was to write as ABC)

Notes: The first 28 counts of the dance are sections of 7 (not the usual 8).
The step description includes some arm styling. However, please note that the arms ARE optional to add styling only, the dance doesn’t require them. The movement of the arms should be soft & follow the rotation of the torso.

PHRASE
As explained in the notes the dance should feel like one long dance – ABC, ABC, then add the TAG, you will then be facing the back to do part B which ends facing 10.30 transfer the weight to L on count 8 and do part B again facing the front. You will then be facing 3.00 and do part C twice (when you do the first part C, don’t make ¼ turn R on the last ‘&’ count, just step R to right side and then do part C again facing 3.00).
GOOD LUCK
