QRCODE

(16 Count intro)
Phrasing: Tag after Wall 2, Tag/Restart on Wall 5 and an optional ending.

Note from Glynn: This dance was originally released around 18 years ago and has always been a favourite of mine. After a conversation with Teresa, she said that she always wished they had phrased it to the music, but at the time decided against it. I have rephrased the dance and, with T&V’s permission, re-released it for a new generation of dancers who may have missed it first time round. I have altered the way it is written (1-2& instead of 1-hold-3-4) but the main dance remains the same. The song is beautiful and I encourage everyone to give it a go – enjoy!
