Duo Step

This is a Double Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 2010)

Both steps are vertical, with about 6 inches in between.
Participants will have partners, and they will be facing each other.
See the end for more details and description...
CB indicates change bench
All patterns begin with a right lead and are self-reversing 32 count.

Combo 1:

Combo 2:

Combo 3:

Combo 4:

Combo 5:

Combo 6:

* Over the top top - Counts 1,2 step up right left as if you were going over one step. Counts 3,4, continue on to the next step. Counts 5,6 step down & tap

** Turnstep into a 3 repeater - Counts 1,2 begin the turnstep, from the top, do a 3 knee repeater (counts 3-8) and then tap down (9,10)

*** Around the corner - similar to an L step, example, after the right turnstep, you are facing the right wall on the left end of the step.
On count 1, step up with your left foot, Count 2, up with the right, turning to face the front wall, 3 - step down left off the left end of the step, 4 - right foot taps down next to your left.

**** Double T step - 1/2 an L step off the short end of the bench (CB) and then 1/2 an L step off the short end of the other bench, and then repeat it back to the starting point.

***** "Jump Rope" T step - Similar to a T step facing the step. 1-2 Up up right left, 3-4 March wide on step right, left, 5-6, Jump feet together on step like you're jumping rope 2X, 7-8 Step down right left.

I use the term travel similar how you would do a revolving door (without a tap), i.e. over the top top travel is an over the top top, but instead of tapping down on count 6, you're stepping down down on 5-6 and then facing the opposite corner of the bench.

This class is done "partnered up" so that the people are facing each other on their steps. Therefore they are NOT mirroring each other and will be moving in opposite directions. This class is better done with intermediate to advanced step participants and it is a lot of fun! I'm sorry this was so long, but this is also my first time submitting and I haven't quite gotten the hang of how to do it yet...
