Start again

Restart + Tag - There are 2 Restarts + 1 Tag with a Restart afterwards. The good thing about the Restarts and the Tag is that you execute them in exactly the same way doing a spiral turn each time:

Restart no. 1: The 1st Restart happens after 48 counts on wall 2, facing 12:00 (wall 2 starts at the back wall). After 48 counts you will normally be facing 3:00 having just completed a twinkle ½ L. To Restart facing the front you change your twinkle ½ L (counts 46-48) into: cross L over R, turn ¼ L stepping back on R, do a spiral ½ L on R. Now Restart facing the front 12:00

Restart no. 2: The 2nd Restart happens after 24 counts on wall 5, facing 6:00 (wall 5 starts at the front wall). After 24 counts you will be facing 6:00 but with the weight on your L. To restart you must have the weight on your R foot. To do this you change your twinkle ¾ L (counts 22-24) to: cross L over R, turn ¼ L stepping back on R, do a spiral ½ L on R. Now Restart facing 6:00

Tag + Restart no. 3: The Tag + 3rd Restart happens after 48 counts on wall 6, facing 12:00 (wall 6 starts at the back wall). Do the same as with your 1st Restart on counts 46-48: cross L over R, turn ¼ L stepping back on R, do a spiral ½ L on R. Then add this 6 count Tag (L basic fwd, R back drag): step L fwd (1), step R next to L (2), change weight to L (3), step R back (4), start dragging L towards R (5), touch L next to R having opened turned body slightly R to be ready to turn L into your Restart (6). Now Restart facing the front 12:00
