Sweet Caroline CopperKnob - Linedance Stepsheets

Count: 56Wall: 2Level: Phrased Improver

Choreographer: Darren Bailey – November 2017

Music: Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond



Intro: 28 Counts
Sequence: A, A, A, +, B, B, A, A, A, +, B, B, A- (Restart/Tag), B, B

Notes: A is danced facing front and back walls. You will dance 3 A, and then need to dance “+” which is 8 counts to turn you back to the front wall. B is only danced facing the front and you will always dance B twice in a row. The last time you dance A you only dance 24 counts of it and then add a 4 count tag which brings you back to the front wall to dance B two more times.
