Tag: On wall 6, back wall, after the 3 sways in the 2nd section of 8, replace count 4 with: Touch R next to L

Restart: You will then Restart the dance from the beginning. Note the music will be instrumental only at that point.[6]

Note: Except for the Tag and Restart on wall 6 the dance just flows through the phrasing. I decided not to phrase the dance further by adding other restarts. I do hope you enjoy the dance.
