Good song, good dance, suits the song. In looking at the demos, I'm noticing most of the dance groups beginning the broadway step sequence two counts sooner in section 4.

Where the stepsheet specifies 3&4 Step R across L, Step L to L, Step R to R

the dancers turned it into 3&4& Step R across L, Step L to L, Touch R heel forward, ball change

I hope to use this dance. I'll teach it the way the dancers are dancing it ... cross and heel and ...
