32 REPEAT and SING ALONG!!!
OPTION: During the chorus you hit counts 1-2-3 in section 1 (‘stay stay stay’), section 2 (‘time time time’) and section 3 (‘mad mad mad’).
Therefore, try to make these steps clear by making them big and clearly defined. Good luck!
Restart: During Wall 6, after count 16, facing 12:00
Ending: You automatically finish facing 12:00! On your 10th wall that starts facing 3:00 you do up to count 24, facing 12:00. There’s one beat left in the music: Step L forward. Tadah!
