8&Rock left back, recover to right

REPEAT

TAG
5th wall begins facing 12:00. At the end of 5th wall you will be facing the back. Add the 2 counts below. Body should be angled naturally towards left diagonal due to the last step of the dance
ROCKING CHAIR ON DIAGONAL:
1&2&Rock left diagonally forward, recover to right, rock left back, recover to right (4:30)
You will then continue from count 5 in section 1 squaring up to face back wall to do:
5&6Left side rock cross (5&6)
&7&Right side rock cross (&7&)
8&Full turn
Then continue the dance from count 5 in the first section. So you will miss out first 4 counts of dance
