REPEAT
The shoulder hitches and head jerks add to the fun of dancing this dance as if the dancer had risen from the dead (but with attitude and lots of rhythm)! So really get into a "Walking Dead" character and have fun! The following tag was taken from the Thriller video and added to help the dancers continue with their "Walking Dead" characters. However, the dance works great without the tags if the instructor would rather not teach them! This dance was created for fun and does not advocate the occult in any way, shape or form!

OPTIONAL 28 COUNT TAG
