Ending: Dance ends at coaster step (4&a), you will be facing 9.00 - Simply turn that last 'a' count to the front

NOTE: This is a great way to get your beginners used to a rolling count dance. I am often asked what the &a refers too and I find this the easiest description. You will hear a Viennese waltz beat 1,2,3 4,5,6. Rolling count works with those same beats however replace with 1&a, 2&a.

Thank you Jan for the music and PLEASE NOTE this dance can also be used with the Calum Scott version as a split floor to any harder dance using that version.

THIS DANCE HAS VERY EASY STEPS AND NO TAGS OR RESTARTS SO RELAX AND ENJOY

It sounds like it will also go to the music "Girl Crush". Nice dance.

alisonjo April 25, 2018
