#32 count introduction * 1 Restart

Note: For a little more intrigue and challenge, continue the dance when the music drops out at 2:19. Dance at the same tempo. You will finish the “quiet” wall and begin again just as the music picks up.

You may also choose to cut the music at 2:19 on the last strong drum beat before the music is “quiet.”

Note: Give this dance a try as a floor split with more difficult tango dances.
