(you can opt to to a locking tipble on counts 5&6 if that feels natural to you)
Styling with optional 7a8 count: A few times in the song the lyrics say “come on” creating counts 7a8. A few options to add in the “a” count: Shoulder pop; Head nod to right; or simply lift you foot a little on the “a” before stepping down on 8; Or create your own styling. I recommend teaching the entire dance without discussing the styling and then bring their attention to the lyrics after dancing it once or twice.
SECTION 4: R KICK/STEP, L STEP BEHIND, R STEP ¼ TURN TO LEFT, L STEP FORWARD, DRAG R AND TOUCH, SYNCOPATED KICK AND POINT AND POINT, ½ HINGE TURN TO RIGHT WITH SOFT STOMP R NEXT TO L
1&2&3,4Kick R forward (1), Step down on R (&), Step L behind R (2), ¼ turn to left stepping R to right (&) (12:00), Big step L forward (3), Drag R next to L and touch (4)
Styling; The drag of RF on count 8 should emphasized as if it looks like you are centering weight on 8, but be sure to keep your weight on L. See video.
5&6&7,8Kick R forward (5), Replace R next to L (&), Point L to left (6), Replace L next to R (&),Point R to right (7), Make ½ hinge turn to right over R shoulder by lifting your R and stomping it next to L (8) (6:00)
Count 8 here should match the music. On count 8 there is often an “uh” sound in the lyrics. Emphasize those with a stomp. But other times in the song, it’s more of a soft stomp/placing your foot there with emphasis but without making sound. See video.
Dance will end facing 12:00 on count 32.
