TAG: Only when dancing to Gon’ Dance by Ron Moody
Repeat last 8-counts (Mambo steps) at the end of walls 2, 4, 5, 7, 8 (facing: back, front, side, side, front)
OPTION: Feel free to leave these tags off if dancing/teaching in a bar or similar social situation. The dance will work fine without them.

Note: Using the tags is a great way to introduce the beginner dancer to the concept of tags in a very easy way – plus it reinforces learning the Mambo step!

Thank you Max Perry for your invaluable input about the tags for the Gon’ Dance track.
