QRCODE

We have given a lot of thought to the start of this dance and we think the best way to accomplish a smooth transition is to have your weight already placed on your left foot (count 1). Approx. 7- 8 seconds into song you will hear like a ‘ping’ in the music and you will start the dance on count 2 (rock R back) on the word ‘IT’S’ & recover on ‘BEEN’ when she sings ‘it’s been 7 hours and 13 days’.
It’s quite an intricate start point, you just have to listen a few times and you will understand better
