REPEAT

RESTARTS
For song "Dirty Pop" (not needed for "Rain Down")
On 2nd time through, go through count 48, then turn a ¼ turn left back to 12:00 and restart with count 1
On 4th time through, after 32 counts there is a long hold (about 8 counts) just wiggle there or turn or something for duration of the hold. Then just start where you are (with the electric kicks). Finish this one out, then do the first 16 counts of the dance again and you need an extra 4 counts. So after you do the arm from right to left on counts 12-16, just do it back from left to right and you will hit the 4 hard counts that are extra. From here dance just repeats.
