RESTART There is one restart that occurs after 32 c. during wall 6 while facing 12 o’’clock. DROP the last step of the shuffle. You will have weight on the left ready to restart the dance.

TIMING HINTS
Wall 2 comes up very quickly and starts immediately after he sings “I NEED YOU BY MY SIDE” There are two strong beats after those lyrics and those beats are counts 1-2 of wall 2.
The same thing happens starting wall 7. THIS IS THE RESTARTED WALL. At the end of wall 6 he sings “MORE THAN THIS MOMENT RIGHT NOW” followed by two strong beats. Those two beats are counts 1-2 of wall 7. The Restart is a little tricky but is crucial. if you count steps it should be easy for you.

Wall 9 is the last wall of the dance and ends on the 48th count. The dance calls for a swivel-swivel 1/4 turn to the right side which will have you facing the back wall. Instead do a single swivel 1/4 turn to the left side and hold.
That will end the dance at 12 o’clock for a nice pose.
