There is no “ending” written for this dance but the last section you do is section 2, facing the back. You can use the steps in section 2 to go around over your right shoulder, 1/2 turn, to end on the front. My beginner class really enjoys this dance.

Well duh - now I see it written above - and no way to delete my comment!

This makes a great split floor to “The Sphinx” - an advanced dance. Move the tag to wall 4, facing 12:00 instead of wall 2.
