The choreographer specifies that the introduction of the dance starts after you
hear one phrase of The Eyes of Texas Are Upon You and then only after waiting
another 16 counts. While waiting to start dancing the introduction, you need to
ignore a few grace notes and only count the main beat Regardless of the length
of the various recorded introductions, the main dance must start with the
vocals.
