Change + Ending
After wall 8 (which ends facing 6:00) The Elgins finish off their song by repeating the chorus twice. Therefore, rather than starting wall 9 from the top (facing 6:00) you finish your dance by doing counts 17-32 twice. However, the second time you repeat counts 17-32 you change the bounce ½ turn to a bounce full turn to finish at 12:00 (you will end with R hooked over L).

Note: To make the transition from count 32 to count 17 easier: finish off the bounces during wall 8 and 9 stepping R to R side on count 32 - 12:00
