Restart Dance- I hope you enjoy!
Step Change and Restart: On Wall 5 there is a change of Steps and a Restart. You will be facing 12:00 starting Wall 5. Dance the first 14 counts of the dance making the 1/2 turn then you will be facing 3:00 then just Step R with R Foot and Step L Foot next to R Foot. Restart the dance.
Ending: At the end of the dance, the music slows down, just keep dancing. You will have made the 1/2 turn to 6:00 when the music slows, I found it easier to just keep dancing and continue through both lock steps, then Step Fwd on the L Foot and Pivot 1/2 turn Right to face 12:00. Tada
