REPEAT
On counts 17 and 25 make sure to step well forward on the stomp with weight. Using the arm motions will help you get the forward-back-back-forward motion. Also if you push off forward with on the ball of the foot on 19 and 27, it will help push you onto the next forward step. There is a nice rocking motion to this move when done correctly.
