Putting Movement into Motion

This is a Hi/Lo pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 1377)

This is a Hi/Lo pattern beginning with a right lead Now your class members are in "moving", but are they really in "motion"? Add some direction to these moves. You can make a box with the 4 grapevines - grapevine right with a quarter turn (facing side wall now), grapevine left with a quarter turn (facing back now), grapevine right with a quarter turn (facing other side wall now) and grapevine left with a quarter turn to face you back to the front.

Take the first set of Alternating Hamstring curls up to the front of the room, hold for the repeater, move back with the second set of Alternating Hamstring Curls and again hold for the repeater.

Again adding quarter turns you can make the Double Step Touches in the shape on an L. Double Step Touch to your right with a quarter turn (now facing side wall) and the Double Step Touch left followed by your V-steps. Take the Double Step Touches back to starting point follwed by V-steps.

You can also take your Jumping Jacks and turn around as you Jack, but you do need to watch that your class members don't get dizzy.

I like to start my class out with out the direction changes just to establish the pattern. I often use it this way as a warmup for step classes.I hope you enjoy it, my classes really seemed to like it.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email. I welcome any comments, corrections or additions.
