REPEAT

TAG
After completing the 2nd repetition of the dance you will be facing the back wall (this will be your first time to the back wall). Before starting the dance over, you will dance the following tag:

1-3Cross right over left, point left to left side (weight remains on right), hold

4-6Cross step left behind right, point right to right side (weight remains on left), hold

RESTART
To the Kenny Loggins version, restart after count 42 of repetition 5 (leave off the last 6 counts)
Towards the end of the song, there will be a short pause as you finish count 42, where you will slow down and take your time, prolonging the last sweep and then continue with the last 6 counts of the dance. You will end to the front wall as you dance sets 1 and 2 and step forward on your right and hold for a beautiful ending
To the Sarah Mclachlan & Carpenters versions, restart after count 21 of repetition 5, putting weight on your left after the ¾ turn so you can then start again on your right at the 9:00 wall
When the music slows down or pauses during the Carpenters version, simply slow down/pause with the music and then continue until the music fades
The ending for the Sarah McLachlan version is the same as the Kenny Loggins version ending to the front wall
