Forever Dance - a Line Dance by Bill Bader
        
Description: 4 Wall Line Dance with one Restart, 32 Counts,
             Intermediate Level
Choreographer: Bill Bader, 604-684-2455, billbader@hotmail.com
               www.billbader.com
Music: "Forever and Ever, Amen" by Randy Travis (92 bpm)
CD:  Greatest Hits Vol. Two and on many various artists collections
  
Restart:*** The 5th pattern is a Short Wall, just 16 counts. It is
very easy to realize the restart is coming because the short wall
corresponds to the 16-count instrumental bridge in the music. The
Short Wall begins on the front (12:00) wall and ends on the back (6:00)
wall.

Note: Other versions of this song exist and may have different
phrasing, so if you are NOT using Randy Travis, you may have to adjust
this. For example, Paul Overstreet's cover of this song has different
phrasing.
