REPEAT
The paddle turns (&41 etc) should be a combination of the forward shuffle move to make the turns flow-there is no pause between the two moves. The toe touches at the beginning of the dance should be gentle moves that flow or slide from one touch to the other, i.e. they should be audible taps or stomps.
