Wall 8 Challenge:
During wall 8 you will get this far and then the music will start to slow down to an eventual
short pause in the song.
As the song slows dance counts 26 – 31 slowing the steps with the music. You will end facing front wall.
OMIT counts 32& (the cross rock & recover) and hold with weight on L.
You will start the dance again from the first piano note you hear,
(this can be tricky the first couple of times so an easier option is to just step R to right side
and hold it there and then AFTER you hear the first note on the piano continue the dance from count 2)

Choreographers’ Note: Don’t be afraid of the restarts/tag/8th wall challenge – it truly looks worse on paper.
