Begin again!

Ending The music starts to fade out during the 2 full turns (count 31-32) in the A section. Slow down with the music and add another slow full turn sweeping L forward! 12:00

Phrasing explanation!!!
Sequence of sections are: A, B, A (with restart), A, B, B (1-32), A (33-48), B, A
The first A + B + A (with restart) + A + B should be quite straightforward. Then, because you start with a B you should only TOUCH R next to L when ending your R lunge. The B (1-32) means that you do counts 1-32 of the B section then adding the last 16 counts of section A (33-48) but not turning ½ R - just step onto R and then sweep L around (in this way you keep facing 12:00). End the dance doing section B + A until music fades out. The reason for this phrasing is to match the steps to the beats of the music. We know it looks pretty difficult (…) but it really isn’t as hard as it looks!!! Come on, you know you can do it! GOOD LUCK…
