Start Again!

NOTE! Now, because of the phrasing of the song there are a couple of amendments and 1 restart
8&Amendments on walls 2, 4, 6 and 7 (facing 12:00, 12:00, 6:00 and 12:00):
At the end of the above walls the bit in the song about kissing boys is repeated which means you will be repeating counts 25-32.
To be able to do this you must change the last 2 counts of the main dance (32&), in this case counts 8&. The minor but important change is this:
Step R fwd (8), drag L next to R (&) … That way you can start rocking fwd on L on count 25

Restart There is 1 restart in the dance. It happens on wall 4, after 16 counts.
To be able to do this restart you must change the steps from counts 6&7&8& in the 2nd section to the following:
6&7 -Cross L behind R (6), step R to R side (&), step L fwd (7),
8&rock R fwd (8), recover back on L (&) 6:00

Extra! Because wall 7 is all instrumental don’t do any hand/arm movements during counts 25-32 - 6:00
