TAG
When using the music, Shake Your Groove Thing, do the last 4 counts of the dance two times at end of the first wall.
There are various mixes of the Peaches And Herb song available. You want the one that starts with a light beat and a high voice singing "There's nothing more that I'd like to do, than take the floor and dance with you." As soon as they finish "Keep dancing. Let's keep dancing..." you will hear the strong beat kick in. That's when you start dancing. You will know you've got it right if the tag occurs just as the singers sing "Show 'em how you do it now. Show 'em how you do it now."
If you have a version of the song that starts right at the beginning with "Shake your groove thing", then you have already missed the correct entrance. Wait for the lyrics from the tag and start right after that, and then eliminate the tag.
