REPEAT

OPTIONAL RESTART:
When dancing to "I Love My Life," you can restart halfway through the 3rd repetition, just after executing the walk-walk scissor-step section. You'll be facing the front wall when this occurs

The advanced turning options in the 3rd and 4th sets of 8 were inspired by Bailee Kulish, Emily Kulish, Shannon Swett, and Ashley Haggle of the Hot Shots Dance Team in Rapid City, South Dakota
