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.

What a fabulous dance❣️ Once again these two have collaborated pulling together their knowledge and love of dance and music to produce a great dance to a great song....Thanks Bill & Cathy

THANK YOU!! We do have a love of dance. There is a lot of work both mental and physical that goes into producing decent choreography, but this project was FUN FUN FUN! And people like you and comments like yours make everything even better.

Bill is amazing and so is this dance☺️ Can’t wait to learn it!!

BillB July 3, 2019
Thank you Brianne. You are very kind and generous with your comment. I will try my best to honor how you feel by doing the best I can❤️‼️

I like the music and the dance and decided to teach this. As an aerobics instructor too I found it counter intuitive for me to go R/R twice at the beginning - I would normally go L/L second time, but I respect your choreographer's decision. I like to learn from the sheet and would have liked a couple more instructions on turns direction to make it easier to learn (for me!). Having said that, I watched your video several times and learned it from that. Still teaching

BillB July 4, 2019
SooJay.. Are you talking about the first 16 counts of the dance? There were a couple of other options, but we liked the current format because it has a lot of left/right parity. When your class learns the dance it would be exciting to see it attached as a demo to this step sheet.. Thank you for your interest and advice. We all learn differently and appreciate you taking the time to express your views.

Bill and Cathy Love the music and your dance . Please Please don't let your scripts let you down SooJay was right you don't give direction to which way the dance turns and if not for the videos would prove difficult to guess Granted some turns are obvious but in this case not the first 16 counts. Very true we all learn differently but giving us a clue to direction of turns in you script would be good. If I didn't like your dance so much I wouldn't even have given my time to comment, just move on to the multitude of interesting choreography on offer Vicky North Wales ((UK) XX

BillB August 9, 2019
Thank you Vicky. It’s positive feedback like yours that helps us get better. One thing I have learned thru this process is that people learn dances in different ways. Some people are just the absolute best at using a step sheet and it’s their preferred way to learn. I tried to put in as much detail as possible, but there is always room for a little more. It’s also very rewarding to know you liked our dance and felt strongly enough to message us a thoughtful note to help us preform better in the future. Your advice is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ And ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️‼️

Thank You Bill and Cathy... Just to add I do like you dance very much, I have already purchased the track and now ready to teach it All the best for your future choreography I for one will be watching Regards Vicky. North Wales. UK XXX
