24 Count intro, No Tags, No Restarts

This song does have the potential for restarts, I chose not to do them as this is for my Absolute Beginner classes and found leaving them out did not affect the dance.
Tip: The music changes at the end of the song, continue dancing at the same pace for the rest of the dance. Also to keep the country feel to the dance you can hook your thumbs in your belt buckles elbows out to your sides as you do the dance, if you don’t have buckles, you can pretend, Have fun with it!

Perfect, just what I needed for an event this week. I thought I was going to have to choreograph a dance and I can’t stand this music. I’m sure to be asked for it though…
