QRCODE

32-count intro

Alternate music: any evenly-phrased track in the 100-110 BPM range.

The entire dance consists of stepping right, left, and teaches weight changes, a right rocking chair, 1/4 L step turns, and the "Vee" step.

NOTE TO INSTRUCTORS: Because Section 1 repeats at the back wall as Section 3, new dancers sometimes think the dance is starting over.
To make it easier, reverse the order of the second and third sections, repeating the first section at the front wall, then do Sections 2 and 4.
