Restart: During the fifth sequence, start the dance facing 12:00. Dance up to count 24 and restart facing 9:00
Ending: You will be facing 6:00. Dance to count 27, then cross R over L and unwind ½ turn R.
Option when teaching: Teach the first 12 counts facing the front without turning therefore; Cross twinkle, basic waltz back, basic waltz fwd, basic waltz back.
Do so until they grasp the concept before teaching the actual dance and include the turn.
