*1st Tag: At the beginning of the 6th repetition (1:35), you will be facing the 9:00 wall. Insert the 8-count Tag here, then begin dance with A1.

**2nd Tag: At the beginning of the 10th repetition (2:41), you will be facing the 9:00 wall. Insert the 8-count Tag here, then begin dance with A1. Note that music slows with the 2nd Tag from 126 bpm to 112 bpm.
Note about speed: the 10th and 11th repetitions, which begin on walls 9:00 and 6:00, respectively, should be executed in harmony with the slow, reverent feel of music, i.e., with extra strength, smoothness, and precision.

***3rd Tag: At the beginning of the 12th repetition (3:19), you will be facing the 3:00 wall. Insert the 8-count tag here, then begin the 12th repetition, beginning with A1.

FINALE:
Repetition 13, which begins on original wall [12:00]: instead of turning ¼ left to 9:00 wall on count 7, remain on 12:00 wall, and execute A1, with a big step to the right, then draw L to R for count A2
D7,8 (Slow) Slide L back, Touch R beside L
