2x Diagonal Hand Roll. Arms: Side-Cross. 1/4 Kick. Bwd (9:00)

Style note: Pony section: All counts (not including ‘&’) raise/hitch knee whilst moving slowly forward.
Fun note: Reverse arm action by having lines doing alternate arms movements
i.e.: Line one 25-26 arms down… line two arms up – create a ‘wave’ pattern.

SECTION B - 102 to zero bpm (The ‘Easy’ part 2 - as the music gradually slows to a stop) (12:00)
Because the music slows over 10 ‘full counts’ (each gap getting longer as it progresses) the preciseness of the steps can
get a little muddled.. don’t worry – as long you move with the tempo and end facing the 12:00/home wall with feet together. (mentally counting up to 10….)
1 – 6Walk (over 6 counts) - rotating forearms forward (both together a’la ‘Riverboat/Paddle Steamer’) perform a FULL turn left to face ‘home’/12:00 wall
7 – 8Walk forward – still rotating forearms
9 – 10Feet side by side – lower head & lower arms to sides (getting ready for the sudden start on ‘10’)

1 – 2(leaning upper body to right) Tap right over left. Step right next to left.
3 – 4(leaning upper body to left) Tap left over right. Step left next to right.
5 – 16Repeat above: Right-Left-Right-Left-Right-Left. (Tina starts to sing on count 15)
Style note: As you ‘tap’, raise both forearms – and lower, when stepping together.
