Angel In My Room (Ängeln I Rummet)
Easy Intermediate NC2
Jessica Boström (SWE) - March 2018
Ängeln I Rummet - Eva Dahlgren : (Album: För minnenas skull - iTunes)
Choreographers note: This dance is choreographed to the original Swedish version of the song but there is also an English version called ”Angel In My Room” if you would like to use that one instead.
I still do prefer that you use the original version. The phrasing is the same.

(These last runsteps on counts 8 & should be executed more like an arc shaped tight half turn rather than two sharp quarter turns.)
To start the dance over again you need to make another 1/4 L squaring up to the back wall (6:00) stepping R big step to Right side on count 1 as you do your first R Basic.
On the second wall, starts facing 6:00. After 16 counts restart facing 9:00
On the fourth wall, starts facing 3:00. After 16 counts restart facing 6:00
Due to the first restart on the second wall you will start the third wall facing 9:00 and the fourth wall starts facing 3:00.
All the other walls start facing either the front or the back wall. Which makes it a two wall dance that starts at all four walls.
