REPEAT

FINISH
After dancing 8 complete walls the music will come to a complete stop. You will be facing the home wall & here you will hold for a couple of seconds until the music kicks in again. Then do the 9th & final wall to finish (change the last triple ½ turn to a triple ¾ turn to ensure that you end facing front for a "nice" finish!)
