Restarts (2): Both occur after 16 counts on walls 4 (facing 12:00 when the Restart happens) and 9 (facing 9:00 when the Restart happens.)
Tip. Normally, you’ll step forward on count 16. Make a small step slightly to the L to be ready to cross over for count 1.

Ending: The dance ends after completing 11 walls. You would have started wall 12 facing 3:00, but instead, for count 1, over rotate ¼ L to the 12:00 wall.

Overall styling: Think Funky West Coast Swing. Don’t be afraid to add upper-body styling to the footwork.

Have fun!
