Yes, the LJ cut worked perfectly this time!

The 180 degree turn is good for limited space because you move into alternate positions for each rep.

(In 1990, when the physical therapists were helping me walk again, one of them promised me I'd be able to do the Electric Slide. I can't even waltz!)

Typepad support insists that using LJ cut tags in Typepad does not work, but reality does not conform.

The waltz is harder than the Electric Slide!

Bleagh...I'd never be able to do that one, unless somebody comes up with a 20-count phrase!

Really, it doesn't make much difference - it's the fours that you "feel" relative to the music.

I have a really strongly developed sense of the 16-beat phrase, though. Starting a new rep on an off measure would make my head explode.
