Still filching, but filching from Gin, Andre, and Petra

This is a Step pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 4932)

Not too complicated, but it was a big hit in my Saturday 11:15... Anything appearing with 2 stars has an explanation following. All explanations start on right for argument's sake. (Sheesh, I have more explanations than routine!)

**Turnstep 2 knee: is a turnstep with 2 knees **on the same foot** in the middle. Starting from the side approach, just like a turnstep - (Count 1) right foot up (2) left foot up (3) right foot taps down on the floor (4) right knee lifts (5) right foot taps down (6) right knee lifts (7-8) right down, left down.

**Step-stomp: Instead of a step knee, ham curl, kick, or whatever, the free leg stomps on the floor to the side while arms swing out wide (like an umpire saying "Safe!"). (Count 1) right foot up, facing left corner, much like starting a step knee(2) left leg stomps on floor on side of step (3) left foot down to starting position (4) right foot down. It goes fairly quickly and involves a quick change of direction - you might not have time to really stomp hard on the floor, but your whole foot should contact the floor, and it's more forceful than a tap down.

**Repeater 3 hop back/in-out: To break down both the repeater 3 hop back and the repeater in-out (both of which need shorter names!), start with a regular repeater knee, then try showing: step right, lift left knee (counts 1-2), left foot tap, tap, tap on the floor at the side of the step (3-5), left knee (6), left down, right down (7-8).

**3 Hop back: three hops backwards from side to back. (Count 1) right foot on step at left corner (2) left knee lifts (3-5) left foot down on floor at side of step (right foot is still on the step), and hop 3 times in a quarter turn moving backwards (6) left knee (7-8) left down, right down. Stay low if you can.

**Repeater in-out: (Count 1) right foot on step at left corner (2) left knee lifts (3) left foot down on floor at side of step (right foot is still on the step) (4) left taps way out to the side of the step (5) left returns close to side of step (foot moves in-out-in, like you are making a minus sign or dash on the floor) (6) left knee up (7-8) left down, right down. (I cue "Step knee, in-out-in." This involves another very quick direction change.)

*Stomp and straddle (Count 1) right foot stomps step (2) left stomps floor (3) right foot straddles and stomps on floor (4) left foot stomps floor (5) right foot stomps step (6) left stomps floor (7) right foot rocks back on floor (8) left stomps floor.

**Side basic front/back (much like a stomp/straddle but rocking front and back): (Count 1) right foot stomps middle of step (2) left stomps floor (3) right foot straddles and stomps on floor IN FRONT OF THE STEP (4) left foot stomps floor (5) right foot stomps middle of step (6) left stomps floor (7) right foot rocks back on floor (8) left stomps floor.

**Pony repeater (Lift alternating knees with big hops, like a rocking horse): (Count 1) right foot on bench (2) lift left knee high, with a hop on the step with right foot (3-4) lift right knee high with a hop on the floor with left foot (5-6) lift left knee, with a hop on the step with right foot (7-8) right down, left down.
