Ending: Dance ends at coaster step (4&a), you will be facing 9.00 - Simply turn that last 'a' count to the front
NOTE: This is a great way to get your beginners used to a rolling count dance. I am often asked what the &a refers too and I find this the easiest description. You will hear a Viennese waltz beat 1,2,3 4,5,6. Rolling count works with those same beats however replace with 1&a, 2&a.
Thank you Jan for the music and PLEASE NOTE this dance can also be used with the Calum Scott version as a split floor to any harder dance using that version.
THIS DANCE HAS VERY EASY STEPS AND NO TAGS OR RESTARTS SO RELAX AND ENJOY
