Thanks to my friend, Andy, for the song suggestion.

Tag: Counts 9-22 with slight step variation on counts 23-24
At the end of wall 7, facing 3:00, repeat counts 9-22.
Do the step forward (count 9), pivot ⅜ right (count 10) to face the 9:00 wall then continue dancing up to count 22. Replace the mambo step (counts 23&24) with a forward triple step: 7&8 Step R forward, step left next to right, step R forward. Restart the dance from the beginning with the samba circle. You will Restart facing 3:00 for wall 8.
