Tapless In Vegas - Vertical #4

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 4612)

Step is vertical, of course. 32 count, self-reversing. North, South, East, West designate the direction of movement and your orientation to the step. Add these blocks to the others I've submitted (Vertical #1, #2, and #3). Intermediate to advanced skills required. 100% tapless.

Block Six


6 Point turn and up:
Right lead, from the SW corner, near home.
A turnstep where on count 4 you step back up and keep turning, then on counts 7-8 you step back up onto the step (at home end, facing North).

Repeater 2 and walk:
From the top, after the 6 point turn. Your left foot is on the step. Do a 2'peter then walk 4 counts toward the rear and around the home end to the SW corner. (Or you could do a 3'peter and straddle). Knee hop2 runrun:

I teach this with 2 pushes on the step and then the runrun move. Then offer the knee hops as an option.

Curb walk / sidewinder:
From the Southwest corner, facing North.

Cool Down

The music is funky, and slow, like 110 BPM. Start at home behind step. Get an attitude.

3 Beat basics:
This 8 count move has the same foot strike pattern as the 6 point turn. The only difference is that it is executed at the home end of the step (NO turn).

Heel dig x3:
Stay on top of the step. Alternate heel digs right-left-right (on top the step) then step down to home, left-right.

Mambo cha cha / rock back cha cha:
On a left lead from the Southeast corner.

Curb walk:
From Southeast corner, facing North.

Be sure to end this move close to Home so you can get back into the 3 beat basics.

Hope this vertical orientation is working for you. If you have any questions I'll be happy to clarify. I've already added a couple new blocks to this routine. I'll submit them as Vertical #5 in a few days.

Enjoy and email me with your own tapless moves. Let's share!
