Choreographers note:- There are two distinctive (Orchestral)rhythm changes with the first 16 counts of Walls 4 and 12 (12 being the Dance finish). The rhythm changes - the tempo does not.
The Single 4m.26s version cannot be used with this dance but there is a restructured (tags & restarts only) version that is available upon request. Watch out for the dance start it creeps up on you.
Always remember - 'The beat may reach your feet - but the rhythm should electrify your soul'.
