For styling when music claps here raise your chin up one inch with clap sound. No more. Gotta take care of precious neck.
A musicality option: if you wanna hit the break on fifth rotation right after flick facing 12:00 the lyric says,” Stop. Wait a minute.” That is a four count break. The choreography already holds for 2 counts of it.
Simply leave the next two counts out. In other words leave the step triple step off then after music starts step touch as if you had never left them out. Also, when singer says “Wait a minute “you can look up and point a finger up during your 4 count hold.
This was fun. I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I did.
