REPEAT

RESTART
When dancing to "Daniel," there are two times when you'll drop the last counts (in effect making the dance 32 counts instead of 36): the first time you're facing the 9:00 wall (at the end of the 3rd repetition), and the second time you're facing the 3:00 wall (at the end of the 5th repetition)
This dance does not work well to the Elton John version of Daniel because the musical nuances and phrasing are different. You may wish to try your favorite nightclub two-step song, adjusting the count when necessary. For example, when dancing to Brave by Jamie O'Neal (suggested country alternative, 16-count intro), you'll do the dance as 32 counts throughout with only one 34-count execution on the 2nd wall
This dance is a nightclub two-step rhythm and should be danced smoothly; let the dance "breathe" to match the pace of the music. Use your arms and head for interpretive styling
