BEGIN AGAIN

*THE ONE AND ONLY TAG:
On the 7th repetition you begin facing the 12:00 wall. This repetition has 36 counts, rather than 32.
Insert the 4-count tag after part C; you will be facing the 3:00 wall at this point. Tag lyrics are “taking it slow.”
T1 Rock R across L (maintain angle left through count T4)
T2 Recover weight L
T3 Step R to right
T4 Step L beside R
D1 Begin part D, with cross shuffle (R over L).

FINALE:
Dance ends “on a dime” at the end of the eighth repetition which begins on the 6:00 wall. At the end of this repetition you will be facing the original wall (12:00). Count D8 changes on finale as follows:
D8 Slide L toward R and touch L at R instep (instead of stepping L beside R)

inspired by this song to create their own singing and dancing video
