RESTARTS: Two restarts are necessary for this piece of music. The First is after the ?first? repetition when you have completed the ?Walks, turns and kicks?. The Second restart will be much later after the ?twelve? repetition. It would be easier to recognize the instrumental ?ElectoneClanging? sound that comes at that time, better than remembering the walls. Both restarts occur after 16 counts from the top. As a result of the restarts, you would actually have completed facing all 4 walls! 
 
ENDING: When the music is about to end, you will be executing the ?Walks, turns, kicks?. Just turn to face the original front wall and stretch both hands upwards to the sky, palms open. No, you are not about to receive the ?TEN COMMANDMENTS!?, just end the dance! Cheers?Enjoy!
