Begin again!...

Tag 1 : Happens twice: on wall 3 and 6 (both start at 6:00). After count 27 you add this 3 count Tag
(facing 12:00): Sway L to L side dragging R next to L over 3 counts. Then Restart 12:00

Restart: On wall 8 (starts at 9:00) after 24 counts. Normally you will be facing 1:30 at this point.
However, on count 22 don’t start running backwards, instead you turn 1/8 L stepping L to L side and dragging R next to L over 3 counts. Then Restart facing 12:00

NOTE! - 3 ways to remember your 3 first Restarts: 1) they all happen af 12:00, 2) they happen right after the instrumental part of the song has finished, 3) they always have a step sliding action to the L to make the restart to the R side easy. 12:00

Tag 2 : Finish wall 9 (now facing 9:00), then add this Tag:
Step slide R, ball sway R, step slide L
1 – 9Step R to R side (1), slide L towards R (2-3), step L next to (&), step R to R side swaying body to R side (4-6), step L to L side sliding R next to L (7-9). Now Restart facing 9:00

Ending: Wall 11 is your last wall (starts at 6:00). Do the first 27 counts.
You’re now facing 12:00. Don’t do your ½ sweep, just add 2 sways, first to the L and then to the R 12:00
