#24 count intro
Counterclockwise rotation; Start weight on L; sequence: 24; 48, 48, 48, Tag, 42 + Restart, 48, 48, Tag

Choreographer's note: if you find the very slow tempo difficult, you may want to up the tempo 5% or so at first. The beat is easier to follow at the second repetition. You can count or you can feel the music; it's all good.
