REPEAT

STYLING TIPS:
"Points" -- Counts 1-12: Lift unweighted hip as you point, and tap unweighted toe on the floor as you point
For the 2-count holds (26-27, 32-33), use a "stop" motion with arms to emphasize the 2-count pause. For example, on count 25 bring hands together at waist level, for counts 26-27, draw hands down and apart (approximately shoulder width) until arms are fully extended. Repeat for counts 31, then 32-33.
There is a general feel for the dance as follows:
Elevation -- On counts 1 and 4 of each pattern, bend weighted knee for a slight dip, and on counts 2-3 and 5-6, lift onto ball of weighted foot on first count, then maintain lift for second count.
Stride -- Counts 1 and 4 are long steps and counts 2-3 and 5-6 are short strides. Cueing can be as follows: dip, lift-lift, or long, short-short. (Counts 37-39 can be executed with short steps on ball of each foot.)
When using Elvis' "Love Letters", end dance on count 12 (which occurs after 6 complete patterns; the music softens).
