Restart: in wall 3 you dance up to count 9, and this will be count 1 of your new wall facing 12:00,
So add your arm movement and lean on count 9 to start wall 4 facing the front, so don’t start a bodyroll.

Tag/Restart: after wall 6, you’ll be facing 3:00, do the first 2 counts of the dance as a little Tag/Restart before starting the 7th wall to 3:00.
