Restart The restart happens 16 counts after you start wall 7. You’ll start the dance on the back wall (6 o’clock).
You’ll dance the first 16 counts, your weight will be on your L and you just Restart.
You’ll be facing the 3 o’clock wall when you Restart because you make a ¼ turn L on the first 8 counts.
Optional: When Melissa is singing “hands up if you’re alive” you can raise your right arm in the air.
This is during the second last wall (facing 3 o’clock at 3:52) of the dance.
To finish, you can step on your L on count 1 (last beat of music) and raise your R arm in the air and hold.
This dance is dedicated to the victims at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, and all those touched by this horrific event…which should be everyone in the entire world.
