This is a Warmup pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 3061)

Although this makes a good warmup, and a good ice-breaker with a new class, I also use it in hi/lo routines when we're getting bored! I also have to credit Sheila Wagstaff with this little snippet, it's not my own work...

You don't just need the counts for this, you need the words too!:

Stride forward for 8 counts. While doing this say...

You can travel this anywhere in the room, and if you're short of space, walk forward for four and back for four. It's a good upper and lower body warm up without realising it, as long as you make sure the movements are really big. And don't let your class get away with not saying the words!

The English are supposed to be reserved, but my lot love a giggle in class - let me know how transatlantic exercisers get on!
