Start again

Ending: To finish at 12:00 do the following: Do the first 32 counts of wall 7. You’re now facing 6:00.
Do the last 16 counts BUT turn ¼ R on the &-count of your L side rock cross (counts 43&44).
You’re now facing 9:00. Repeat the last 16 counts again and repeat the ¼ R on the L side rock cross.
You’re now facing 12:00. After your last knee pop step R to R side ... [12:00]

Fun Option
Once you feel comfortable with the dance you can play with the high lights in the music:
leave out the second knee pop (&8) from counts 33-40 on wall 2 and 4 (facing 12:00) and
on wall 7 (facing 6:00) and wall 8 (facing 9:00). Just an option, but it makes sense…
