Waltzing is all about smooth steps with a rhythmic rise and fall movement.
This dance can be done without the restart, but I recommend it to match the flow of this beautiful song.
Most importantly, smile and have fun!
This is for my wife Patricia, the love of my life.
The restart happens just before the two twinkles on the fifth rotation. You will be facing the three o’clock wall. You will know it’s coming by the 18 count musical interlude.
