ENDING: WITH RESTARTS, FINISH THE DANCE AT 12:00 BY TURNING ¼ LEFT DURING THE LAST TWO STEPS. WITHOUT THE RESTARTS, THE DANCE ENDS ON THE FRONT WALL WITHOUT ANY MODIFICATIONS. IN UP, LEAVE OUT THE ¼ LEFT TURN AT 12:00 TO END ON THE FRONT.

*CHOREOGRAPHER’S NOTE: THIS DANCE WORKS GREAT WITHOUT THE RESTARTS – THE PHRASING COMES AROUND AGAIN QUICKLY. HOWEVER, IF YOU PREFER A PERFECT FIT OF DANCE TO MUSIC, BOTH RESTARTS HAPPEN IN THE SAME PLACE IN THE DANCE IN BOTH SONGS, AND BOTH AFTER A 16 COUNT INSTRUMENTAL. EITHER WAY, HAVE FUN AND HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE HOLIDAY!
