REPEAT

EXTRAS
One of the things that makes this dance special are the "Bridges" in the music. After the 3rd, 6th and 9th repetition, you will stand in place and raise both arms over your head starting from the row closest to the wall and traveling along to the back row. Wait until you see the person in front of you raise their arms, then follow suit, creating a "wave" effect. That should only take 8 counts each time it is danced. You will hear this in the music! Don't worry about counting the repetitions. The extras will happen on the side walls and the back wall only.
