The dance will finish on the end of the track at count 7 with your left pointed out to the side facing 9:00. Optional: to end facing the front, go into a quick ¼ turn right pointing left to left side and hold
When dancing you will find that the walk steps and the run steps hit with these lyrics every time. "Know when to walk away. Know when to run" there is a great storyline to this track and is a great singalong. This music lifts and builds as the track progresses
