QRCODE

4 count intro unless you get the extended version. 
Note: Yes, it?s an AB dance but B can be taught in 1 minute. It is just 8 counts repeated 4 times. It is easy but looks good on the floor in mass. The rhythm of the Chorus versus the Verse really called for an AB dance. 
Sequence: A, A, B, A, A*, B, A, A, B, A,(Part B will only start when you face the front wall) 
* on the 4th A you can replace counts 13&14 (side shuffle) with a hop, hop, hop - but make sure to take weight on R on the last hop. This hits when he sings Ha, Ha, Ha.
