Extra!
Tag 2+1 option On count &8 in Tag 2 Pitbull says ‘Now Stop’, so… on the &-count you bring your R arm up (R fist at R shoulder), on count 8 you extend R arm fwd making a STOP sign with the palm of R hand. Begin Tag 1 by HOLDING for 3 counts. On count &4 you continue Tag 1 by jumping etc. 9:00

Note: Okay, I know the phrasing is a bit crazy! I believe it’s easier to understand when listed like this:
• Tag 1, A, B, B with restart
• Tag 1, A, B, B with restart
• Tag 1, A, Tag 2
• Tag 1, A, A, A

Below I’ve listed which wall you’re facing when you start a new section
• Tag 1 (12:00), A (12:00), B (9:00), B with restart (6:00)
• Tag 1 (12:00), A (12:00), B (9:00), B with restart (6:00)
• Tag 1 (12:00), A (12:00), Tag 2 (9:00)
• Tag 1 (9:00), A (9:00), A (6:00), A (3:00) – Finish facing 12:00! Yay…
