PIVOT TURN LEFT, ½ TURNING SHUFFLE LEFT
29-30Step forward on right, pivot ½ left
31&32Step right-left-right in place while turning ½ left
The song is 192 BPM but I have written the steps using ½ time, cutting down the steps by half as most of them would be hold counts. The dance is phased to "Talk Of The Town" as the verses are only 28 counts (in ½ time) not 32 as most. When repeating Part B in the sequence ABB the weight will be on your right after the ½ turn (steps 31&32). So just hop onto the left as a syncopated step before commencing with the right heel touches at the start of the 2nd Part B.
To finish the dance at the end of the song (8 counts remaining after the above sequence) repeat steps as follows from Part B
HEEL TOUCHES, BEHIND SIDE, CROSS
1&Touch right heel at 45 right, hitch right knee (and slap with right hand)
2&Repeat
3&4Step right behind left, step left to left side, step right in front of left

8&Turn ¼ left and stomp right next to left, clap
