Triple step?

This is a Double Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 3752)

I have my students line their steps up vertical to one another along the floor in a long line.

EX: ---------   ----------  ---------- ------- -------

There needs to be an empty step on the right and left ends of each row. Each person will use three steps. The one they are on, plus the ones at the right and left of them (which can be steps other people are using). You are basically doing a combination on the right foot on your home step, then doing the same combo on your left on the step to the left or right of you. You could also set this up with everybody getting three steps. Anyway you do it this is the general set up.

  ______ (<- left step) _____ (<- home step) _____ (<- right step)

Steps should be at least a jack width apart.

You always begin the combo on your right foot on your home step.

Combo 1 (home step, right foot)

Now you are on the right step, left foot is ready to repeat the combo - you should end up back at your home step on right foot

Combo 2 (again home step, right foot)

Now you are on the right step, left foot is ready to repeat the combo---you should end up back at your home step on right foot.

Combo 3 (home step, right foot)

Repeat on right step with left foot

Combo 4 (home step, right foot)

You should now be at your left step - repeat combo. You will end up back at home step on right foot.

Combo 5 (home step, right foot)

You should now be on the right step -left foot ready to repeat combo

Combo 6 (home step, right foot)

You should be on left foot- left step, --- repeat combo

I have more- let me know if you'd like to see it.

* When introducing this it's best to have them hop in place for 4 & then hop back for four counts. I give them an option of marching back as well.

R-turn - is a reverse turnstep- it's just like a turnstep but you are not facing the step. You can replace this R-turn with a step turn and have it work out just fine.

** Cross arms--- You will cross your arms (so each hand is at opposite shoulder), uncross so that each hand is at the same should, touch your quads, then clap. I cue it as cross, shoulders, thighs, and clap. Each touch is a count.

U-turn is a turn-straddle-turn

Let me know if there are any questions : )
