This is very easy as the dance is SLOW. Just say restart and they will remember to step on left so they can walk forward again. The restart also is on the FRONT WALL to be the same as the Intermediate dance.
ENDING: You will be facing front as the music fades…simply start the new wall with your Walk Walk then you final Walk in a pose VOILA.
Dance choreographed for my Beginner class as a split floor for "Hurt Me Carefully" by Ria Vos as I knew they would love the music but could not find a suitable alternative due to the count.
