RESTART 

Restart Notes: You will restart on the 4th Wall after count 48, facing back wall.

Bridge Notes:
On Wall 7 you will modify the dance to perform the bridge, this happens after count 36:
34-36 Rock/step right forward, Hold, Hold (facing back wall)
Then proceed with the bridge (hit the breaks of the music):
37-39 (Bridge 1-3) Recover weight back on left, make 1/2 turn right & step right forward, step left forward
40-42 (Bridge 4-6) Point right toe to right, Hold, Hold
43-45 (Bridge 7-9) Hold, Stretch right arm forward, Stretch left arm forward
46-48 (Bridge 10-12) Pull arms towards body slowly taking weight onto right
Continue dance from count 49 (Stride steps forward)

Styling Tips:
* It might help using a 1&a2&a rolling count to assist with the timing
* Really step out the first 6 counts, use the last count of the dance to prep and push off into the beginning
* Use your arms, feels great
* Emphasize all the drags
* Travel on the twinkles
* Big strides fwd on counts 49-57
* Let your body naturally turn while dancing
* Hit the breaks of the music in the bridge
* Turn to the front wall on count 13 to end the dance
